Green Bay Packers' kicker Mason Crosby did something spectacular against the Dallas Cowboys on January 16, 2017. Crosby is the first kicker in the game to make two field goals from above 50 yards in the final two minutes of postseason play.
His first kick in the game was a 56-yarder, the third-longest field goal in NFL postseason history only trailing a 58-yarder by Pete Stoyanovich in 1990 for Dolphins and a 57-yarder by Mike Nugent for the 2014 Bengals.
After Packers' win against Dallas Cowboys, Crosby stated,
"I had to kind of bring [the adrenaline] back a little bit. You get pretty amped up, the crowd noise and everything. I just kept telling myself to stay smooth and hit a good ball because you don't want to overswing on those. I felt like I hit it pretty smooth and was able to knock it through."
Crosby formed an NFL-record of 23 consecutive postseason field goals after his performance against Dallas Cowboys. Crosby is also one of the major players in fantasy football league for all the fans, thanks to his consistent performance.
With his beautiful performance followed by a handsome contract, the collaboration between the team and Crosby seems going strong, and everybody is longing for some extraordinary performances from this player in this season.#American football placekicker
