Mental Toughness from Mason Crosby
The fifth week of NFL action is complete, and some major headlines came from the slate. Lamar Jackson shined through the air on Monday Night Football, and the Chargers prevailed in a shootout over the Browns.
Here is the news you need to know following week five.
Mason Crosby, one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL, missed three straight go-ahead field goals on Sunday. The first two misses came in the final two minutes of overtime, and then he missed the third kick in overtime.
Aaron Rodgers’ offense kept driving and gave Crosby one final chance. He succeeded on a 42-yard attempt to win the game.
After the game, he said, “The fact that we kept getting opportunities, you’ve got to give it up to our team, the way we fought to get in that position again. “And I just wanted so badly to come through there. I had a couple go bad there, and I’m just happy to hit that last one. There was a little bit of relief.”
