Packers kicker Mason Crosby had a winning field goal in overtime on Sunday and he scored four goals in the game, but it wasn’t one of the veteran’s best days as a professional.
Crosby missed three more field goal attempts, including one in the last regulation play and another earlier in overtime. He called himself “the harshest critic” after the game and said he would work to clean up what was wrong for him against the Bengals.
On Monday, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said all the blame for the misfires shouldn’t fall on Crosby.
“I think there are just a few things that we absolutely need to clean up from an operational standpoint,” LaFleur said, via ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky. “You can’t put all of this on Mason. I thought there were some areas we needed to make sure we got fixed, and we will. “
Long snapper Hunter Bradley and incumbent Corey Bojorquez are the other members of the operation, but LaFleur said he was “not going to throw anyone under the bus” in further commenting on what needs to be fixed in Green Bay.
