Lubbock Native Kicks Winning Field Goal for Packers in Overtime

Mason Crosby, a native of Lubbock, kicked the winning field goal for the Green Bay Packers in last night's overtime game versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Crosby kicked the winning 27-yard field goal for the Packers during last night's game, giving Green Bay the 27-24 victory over Cincinnati. The kick was one of several strong appearances by Crosby during last night's game.

Crosby's successful field goal gave the Packers another win for the 2017 season and gave Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers his first career overtime victory. Rodgers had previously lost all seven of his previous overtime appearances.

Last night's game marked Crosby's 163rd career appearance in the NFL.
