Mason Crosby redeems himself in Packers win

Last week against the Detroit Lions, Packers kicker Mason Crosby didn’t have a good day. In fact, he would miss all FOUR field goal attempts. AND, and extra point. In other words, he would leave 13 points on the field in a game the Packers lost by eight. But on Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers, he didn’t disappoint. In fact, he would end up playing the role of hero. Crosby made all four of his field goal attempts on Monday. And, all three of his extra point attempts. Then...

Three plays that sealed Packers’ comeback win

After Monday night’s comeback win, the Green Bay Packers are 3-2-1. And while they are right in the thick of the NFC North race, they don’t look all that convincing. But Aaron Rodgers does, even despite his knee injury, and Davante Adams and Aaron Jones are legitimate weapons. Plus, the Packers have been dealing with plenty of injuries over the past few weeks. Still, though, there’s no excuse for QB C.J. Beathard going 16-for-23 (69.5%) with 245 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception....

The Takeaway, 49ers vs. Packers: Aaron Rodgers overcomes injury-riddled roster to keep Packers afloat

The undermanned Packers dealt with even more injuries during Monday’s game against the 49ers, but Aaron Rodgers found a way to carry the team to victory. Still, even a two-time MVP quarterback can’t rescue Green Bay like this every week.

After more than a month of early game struggles, the Green Bay Packers offense managed a fast start and scored on each of its first three possessions. Head coach and offensive play-caller Mike McCarthy displayed some badly needed creativity on those...

Tuesday Cheese Curds: Aaron Rodgers’ 4th-quarter magic continues to amaze

Low blood pressure is overrated.

It seems that Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers’ offense live for the fourth quarter nowadays.

The unit got off to a blistering start in Monday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, with pass plays of 50-plus yards on two of their first three drives, both of which led to touchdowns. Then, once the game clicked over to the second quarter, everything slowed down.

First, the Packers were forced to punt after a promising drive. Then they couldn’t...

Packers Week 6 Snap Counts: Return of the base defense & a tale of two halves

The Green Bay defense was much better in the second half than the first, though that wasn’t a high bar to clear.

The San Francisco 49ers employ the NFL’s highest-paid fullback and one of the league’s most intriguing young tight ends. Furthermore, the team’s third and fourth wide receivers were inactive for Monday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. As a result, it was no surprise to see Kyle Shanahan’s team line up with a heavy dose of 21 personnel — two running backs and a...

Packers magical against 49ers, but it might not do vs. Rams

It's hard to believe anyone left Lambeau Field convinced all is right with the Packers, who face a daunting five-game stretch after their bye.

Davante Adams on pace to break Packers’ single-season record for receptions

Sterling Sharpe holds the record for now, but Adams could break that mark easily if he keeps up his current numbers.

Through six games, Davante Adams’ receiving numbers are backing up the big contract that the team gave him last December. Adams, who signed a four-year contract extension worth $19.5 million per season, became the ninth-highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL based on per-year average.

But for now, the Packers’ unquestioned top receiver is playing like a top-five wideout in...

Recap: Packers come back to stun 49ers 33-30 on Monday night thanks to Rodgers, Crosby

After a horrific game against the Lions, Crosby came back to win the game against San Francisco thanks to some late-game heroics from Aaron Rodgers.

Mason Crosby had an extra day to think about what he’d done. An all-time ignominious performance against the Lions with five missed kicks and the dreaded talk of the yips. Maybe the extra day gave him time to get right because when the Packers needed him to pull a victory out of the proverbial jaws of defeat, Crosby came through.

Mason Crosby redeems himself with four FGs, including game-winner against 49ers

The Packers’ kicker got his groove back on Monday night.

A week after the worst performance of his football career, Mason Crosby put in one of his very best.

Crosby, in his 12th year in the NFL, had missed a pair of kicks over the first four games of the 2018 season — one extra point and one field goal, the latter from 52 yards. In week five, he missed each of his first five kicks. That consisted of four field goal attempts and a PAT that he doinked off the right upright before Mike...

Twitter reacts to Aaron Rodgers leading yet another comeback

Aaron Rodgers delivered yet again for the Green Bay Packers, rallying the team for 10 points in the final three minutes of the game to come back and beat the San Francisco 49ers 33-30 on Monday night. Rodgers admitted after the game that he was thinking overtime following Kevin King’s interception with just over a minute left. Instead, he drove the team 81 yards to set Mason Crosby up for a redemptive 27-yard game-winning field goal. Playing through his knee injury and more while leading...

Jason Witten crushed for butchering ‘rabbit out of hat’ line

Jason Witten continues to get crushed by fans for his commentary on “Monday Night Football,” which included an extremely embarrassing moment while calling the Green Bay Packers-San Francisco 49ers game. Witten praised Aaron Rodgers for throwing a touchdown that helped the Packers tie the game with the 49ers at 30 late in the fourth quarter. He tried comparing him to a magician but screwed up his “rabbit out of the hat” line and instead said “rabbit out of his head.” Fans crushed...

A week after 5 misses, Crosby wins it for Pack

A week after missing four field goals and an extra point in a loss at Detroit, Packers kicker Mason Crosby rebounded in a big way, delivering the game-winning field goal in Green Bay's comeback victory over San Francisco Monday night.

Bryan Bulaga Injury: Packers right tackle questionable to return with shoulder issue

The Packers’ right tackle added another injury to his list of ailments and was replaced by Byron Bell early in the first half.

The words “Lucas Patrick is in” should send shudders through every Green Bay Packers fan and quarterback, but that is exactly what has happened to start the second half. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga never came out of the tunnel, and the oft-injured stalwart has caused a shakeup in the line with Byron Bell at tackle and Lucas Patrick coming in to play guard....

Packers vs. 49ers, Week 6: Second half game thread

After points galore in the first half, join us for the final 30 minutes of regulation from Lambeau Field.

The Green Bay Packers’ defense forgot to show up in the second quarter of tonight’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. In the first half, they have forced just three third down attempts for the Niners, who converted one; meanwhile, the Green Bay offense is 0-for-5 on third downs themselves, and an early ten-point lead vanished in the second 15 as the Niners pulled ahead 24-20 at...

Packers-49ers Inactives: Allison, Cobb, Alexander all sit for second straight game

Green Bay is down two veteran receivers and one starting corner for another week.

Green Bay Packers fans got the news that wide receivers Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb would be out for the team’s Monday night game against the San Francisco 49ers around mid-afternoon. That was confirmed this evening when the Packers announced their list of seven inactive players for the contest, but the list also shows another set of key players who will miss the game, particularly on defense.

Packers vs. 49ers, Week 6: First half game updates & discussion

Join us for the first half of the Packers’ final game before their bye week.

2-2-1 is not where the Green Bay Packers hoped to be after five weeks of the 2018 NFL season. Given the early schedule, most Packers fans were hoping that this evening’s game against the San Francisco 49ers would be an opportunity to see the Green and Gold start 5-1 or 6-0. Instead, 3-2-1 is the best the team can do before their off week, after which the Packers will have their toughest set of games of the year...

Packers’ Randall Cobb & Geronimo Allison unlikely to play vs. 49ers, per report

It looks like Davante Adams will be flanked by a trio of rookies once again on Monday night.

All week, it seemed that there was a good chance that the Green Bay Packers would be back to full strength at wide receiver. It was hardly a sure thing, to be sure, but with both Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison practicing all week (albeit on a limited basis), fans can be excused for feeling optimistic.

Unfortunately, news out of Green Bay on Monday afternoon paints a bleaker picture. Lisa Salters...

49ers’ offensive depth chart remains in question leading up to Packers game

When the San Francisco 49ers suit up for tonight’s game at Lambeau Field, it is highly unlikely that the team will have its entire starting offense on the field. Six of twelve starters are listed as questionable (the team lists two running backs as co-starters), with another two second-string receivers being out or doubtful for the game.

Although the Niners are hearing some good news on running back Matt Breida — who currently leads the NFL in yards-per-carry average with an impressive...

Dolphins QB Brock Osweiler shredded the Bears’ top-ranked defense on Sunday

Let’s enjoy a little schadenfreude at the expense of the other NFL team on Lake Michigan.

The Chicago Bears’ defense had been good for most of this season, aside from a 30-minute stretch against the Green Bay Packers in week one. But on Sunday, one of the league’s biggest punchlines tore it to shreds, giving the Packers an opening to claw back into the division.

About a year and a half ago, the Houston Texans gave the Cleveland Browns a pair of draft picks to convince Cleveland to take...
