Tough sledding for kickers

CHICAGO -- We just saw Green Bay succumb to its first case of cold-weather problems Monday night at Soldier Field.

Kicker Mason Crosby just skipped a 46-yard field goal attempt well short of the goal post. It was difficult to tell what happened, but one guess is that it's really tough to kick a football 46 yards when the temperature is approaching 0.

Suffice it to say, Packers coach Mike McCarthy should have a pretty good idea of Crosby's range now.
