Video: Mason Crosby cements Packers comeback with game-winning field goal vs. 49ers
Let Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby show everyone how to bounce back in style.
A week ago, Crosby was at the lowest point of his NFL career when the usually dependable kicker missed four of five field-goal attempts and muffed his only extra-point shot in a 31-23 road loss to the Detroit Lions.
Fast forward to Week 6 of the 2018 NFL season, Crosby made quite a rebound, as he punctuated yet another incredible Aaron-Rodgers led fourth-quarter comeback this time against the San Francisco 49ers.
Here’s Mason Crosby drilling a field goal from 27 yards out to break a 30-30 tie with the 49ers and subsequently hand the Packers a 33-30 win.
REDEMPTION FOR MASON CROSBY.

Overall, Crosby made all four of his field goal attempts against San Francisco and got the job done on each of his three extra-point kicks.
Of course, Crosby wouldn’t have had the opportunity to seal the win for the Packers if it weren’t for Rodgers’ heroics.
The Packers were down by seven points with less than two minutes remaining in regulation, but Rodgers ended a drive late in the game with a touchdown pass to Davante Adams. That was followed by Green Bay’s defense stepping up to intercept a C.J. Beathard pass to give Rodgers another shot of completing a comeback. Rodgers then marched Green Bay’s offense within field-goal range to set up Crosby, who nailed the game-winner.
The Packers bagged the win, but for Crosby, it’s more than just the victory. He also got his redemption.
