Flying under the radar from Sunday’s Packers win, without much notoriety, was Mason Crosby’s matching of Chris Jacke’s franchise record for consecutive field goals at 17.
One of the best re-signings by GM Ted Thompson was that of Crosby. He’s proven that with perfection so far – but all of it has been on the road.
It was Crosby’s 32-yard field goal Sunday, his first at Lambeau this year, that put him in a tie with Jacke.
“It was good to make that one here today, especially with that wind,” Crosby said after the game. “I was hoping to maybe get another one and break it. We’ll see what happens.”
Jacke made 17 straight field goals in 1993.
Going back to last year, Crosby made his final seven field-goal attempts and was 3 for 4 in the postseason.
“It’s kind of weird to have that in three games, to only have one field goal at home,” Crosby said. “But we’re just scoring touchdowns and finding ways to put points on the board. That’s all that matters. We just keep winning. So I’ve got to keep staying on this roll, too.”
