Post-game: Congrats to Green Bay and Cincinnati for a Hall of Shame performance:
Via Elias Sports Bureau: Bengals-Packers today is the only game since 1970 with 5 missed potential go-ahead FG in the 4th quarter and OT (h/t @ESPNStatsInfo)— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) October 10, 2021
Update: Mason Crosby got his moment of redemption and the Packers got the win they wanted.
It has been a rough day for Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby.
One of the NFL’s most reliable kickers, Crosby missed not one but TWO game-winning field goal attempts against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5. Crosby missed a field goal attempt to take the lead prior to missing the first potential game-winning kick. He then missed a kick in overtime that would’ve iced the game. Crosby also missed an extra point in the contest.

Luckily for Crosby, Bengals kicker Evan McPherson failed to hit on two-game winning kicks himself. At one point, the teams combined to miss FIVE game-winning kicks.

McPherson had kicking heroics in Week 1 against the Vikings in overtime, while Crosby made a big kick against the 49ers to win the game. No telling yet on whether a kicker plans to make his next attempt.
