Packers PK Mason Crosby melts down in 31-23 loss to Lions

Packers PK Mason Crosby melts down in 31-23 loss to Lions”

The Lions will host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon in Detroit.

Rodgers connected with Davante Adams on a 12-yard throw for a third TD pass, but Crosby hit the left upright on the extra point to let the Lions keep an 11-point cushion midway through the fourth quarter. Adams has been out all week with a troublesome calf, but he is expected to practice Saturday.

Cook rushed for just 20 yards on 10 carries in that Thursday night game, and played only 18 of 74 snaps. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. He did not participate in practice on either Wednesday or Thursday as the Packers prepared for their game against the Lions. Aaron Rodgers and the offense are then forced to play catchup in the second half, making the offense one-dimensional and making it hard to win. In three of the Packers' first five games, that hasn't been the case.

Back in 2012, Crosby missed two of his three FG tries inside at Ford Field and was mired in a terrible slump, missing 7-of-13 attempts in a six-game span.

Rookie wide receivers rarely make a huge impact on offense.

DAVIE, Fla. - Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake has been ruled out of today's game at Cincinnati because a knee injury.

"I always prepare like I'm going to be the No. 1 receiver", Valdes-Scantling said. "I don't think guys ever got down and thought we were in big, big trouble at that time".

-Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook did not practice because of a hamstring injury, and head coach Mike Zimmer expects to list Cook as questionable on Friday's injury report.

"Mentally, as a defense, I think we stuck in there", Williams said.

"I've done this a long time and I've never had a game like that", Crosby said, according to the National Football League report. But at some point, this pattern of struggling and bouncing back is going to get broken. "We've just got to find ways to get it done earlier in the game, then we don't have to worry about trying to be heroes at the end".

Given the outlook at receiver, Rodgers might have to direct the passing game elsewhere. The Packers franchise quarterback will nearly certainly focus more on tight end Jimmy Graham and former receiver Ty Montgomery if he is without one or more of his most reliable targets. It is the chance they've been waiting for and the Packers hope it might be the next step in three productive careers.
