Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions: Five on the Spot

ARLINGTON, TX - OCTOBER 08: Aaron Jones /
5 of 5

Mason Crosby

This NFC North donnybrook may very well end up being a field-goal fest between a visiting side with a patchwork offensive line and red-zone issues versus a limited home team that features a conservative attack led by a wet-behind-the-ears signal caller.

Crosby will have to match one of the premiere place kickers in the NFL in Matt Prater, 33, who is deadly from long range. The former Bronco has connected on 5 of his 7 attempts from 50 yards and beyond thus far.

And while Crosby has converted 87.5-perecnt of his tries this season, he missed his only 50-yard-plus field goal attempt along with misfiring on two extra points.

The Texas native will need to have ice water in his veins if the game comes down to him nailing a game-winning kick.

He’s done it so many times before and my money is one him coming through…unless, of course, he’s asked to kick a 60-yarder in the rain. Luckily, the weather forecast is calling for clear skies in this one.
