Uh-oh, Mason Crosby
By Kevin Seifert
PITTSBURGH -- Who will have a new kicker first: Dallas or Green Bay?
We all know Nick Folk is struggling for the Cowboys. But Mason Crosby was just wide right on a 34-yard attempt for the Packers, leaving his team trailing 14-7 here early in the second quarter. It was Crosby’s fifth miss in his past 11 attempts, and if anything he’s gotten shakier as the year has progressed.
We don’t know yet if this most recent miss will cost the Packers, but eventually an inconsistent place-kicker always comes back to haunt you.
