|Following their win over Minnesota, the Packers visit the examination room.|
While we were paying attention to silly peripheral things like the Packers' Super Bowl championship, Mason Crosby has developed into one of the most reliable place-kickers in the game. I'm not sure how we missed it, but Crosby hasn't missed a kick since hitting the left upright on an attempt in Week 13 of last season. Since then, he has converted 21 consecutive kicks, including four in Sunday's game. One of them, a 58-yarder in the third quarter, set a Packers franchise record. I heard some mild grumbling from you this summer when the Packers re-signed Crosby to a five-year contract, but I think you're starting to get the picture now.
