Crosby named 'NFC Special Teams Player of the Week'

Posted Oct 12, 2011


Packers kicker Mason Crosby has been named “NFC Special Teams Player of the Week” for his performance at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta last Sunday.

Crosby tied a career best by making four field goals, including one from 56 yards that tied his own franchise record. The 56-yarder pulled the Packers within 14-9 in the third quarter on their way to a 25-14 victory.

On his kickoffs, Crosby also had touchbacks on six of seven attempts.

For the season, Crosby is now 9-of-9 on field goals and has 17 touchbacks. He has made 12 field goals in a row, dating back to last season’s playoffs. In regular-season games only, he has made 16 straight.

This is the third player-of-the-week award in Crosby’s career. He initially won it in Week 1 of 2007, his rookie season, when he hit a 53-yard field goal and a game-winning 42-yarder in his NFL debut. He also won it in Week 1 of last season, when he first established the new franchise record with a 56-yard boot.

Crosby has made four field goals in a game three previous times, most recently in Week 6 of 2009 vs. Detroit. He also made four field goals in a game twice during his rookie season.
