Packers standing by Mason Crosby

Matthew Stockman

Head coach Mike McCarthy is sticking with his struggling kicker.

Despite connecting on just one of his three field goals against the Detroit Lions, Mason Crosby won't be out of a job any time soon.

Crosby missed field goals from 50 and 38 yards against the Lions today but lucky for him, it didn't cost the Packers the game as they went on to win 24-20 in Detroit. Crosby did hit a 39-yard field goal with under a minute to go to extend the Packers' lead to the winning four point margin.

The sixth year kicker out of Colorado has struggled mightily this season. He's hit on just 10 of 15 field goals this year with a long of 54 yards against Chicago in mid-September. Crosby was perfect to start the season but has hit just half of his field goals since then including missing both attempts against the Indianapolis Colts in a three point loss. He's missed at least one field goal in the Packers last four games.
