We love shenanigans from kickers, and Packers kickoff specialist Mason Crosby provided them this week. With the Packers leading 14-3 late in the first quarter, Crosby executed a surprise onside kick that led to another Packers score. It completely caught the Broncos off guard – check out Denver head coach John Fox’s stammering, stuttering quote here.
It wasn’t necessary, nor was it crucial, given the ease with which the Packers won. But it was crazy, and so it’s more than enough to make Crosby Week 4’s Crazy Kicker of the Week.
