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 (2-3) go into the bye week looking to get healthy as they prepare for the Miami Dolphins (3-2) in Week 7. Green Bay lost four out of five games in the middle of the 2015 season but still made the playoffs, and chased that in 2016 by losing four straight which prompted the infamous R-E-L-A-X speech, which led to a trip to the NFC Championship Game. Valdes-Scantling finished the day with seven catches for 68 yards and a touchdown, and nearly had a second score while extending for the goal line in the fourth quarter. He has the two receptions.

How the Ravens will align their defense and work their substitution pattern to allow Carr to keep his streak going while still making use of Smith remains unknown. The jump from college game plans to the more complex playbooks of the National Football League is a large one. Not to be outdone, Mike McCarthy continued to simply not use Aaron Jones, who only logged 22 snaps, and continued to force his receivers to consistently get open on isolation routes, which just resulted in Rodgers being forced to hang onto the ball and take hits. With their pedigrees, McCarthy would feel comfortable playing any of the three without any practice time.

His final miss came in the fourth quarter, when the Packers opted to try a 56-yard field goal on fourth-and-15 from the Lions' 38-yard line rather than try and convert the play.

"Mason and I have played together for a long time, and I strongly believe he's one of the greatest kickers of all time", Aaron Rodgers said. His practice status on Friday will be a big determining factor.

"Mike always says 'conflict is good, '" Rodgers said. I think they're progressing, but it's easy to say that in practice. They've had some concerning moments this season, such as the first half at Washington, but overall the defense looks much improved this year. Darrius Slay is their top cover corner. The Packers' top receiver and Rodgers' favorite target, Adams hauled in nine receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown, with most of the production coming in the second half.

Cobb did not play in Green Bay's win over the Bills because of a hamstring injury while Adams has been dealing with a calf issue. 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.
