Green Bay placekicker Mason Crosby in the Packers’ 40-33 loss to Philadelphia last Sunday night had two successful field goals and three extra points for nine total points. It was the third time this season that the 16-year veteran from Colorado scored nine points in a game… he did it in Week #2 in the win over the Bears and in Week #4 in the victory over New England.
Crosby has scored nine or more points in 96 regular season games for the Packers, leaving him four games short of the 100-game milestone with nine-plus points in a contest. The Packers’ loss to the Eagles last week was the first loss in a game when Crosby scored nine or more points since September 26, 2019. Green Bay had won 16 straight when Crosby tallied nine or more points in a game until last Sunday.
On the NFL’s all-time list, Crosby’s 96 regular season games with 9+ points ranks him seventh in league history. He is one game behind another active kicker, San Francisco’s Robbie Gould who has 97 games with 9+ points in his career. Topping the list is Adam Vinatieri who had 138 regular season games with nine or more points in his career that ended in 2019.
NFL players with most career regular season games with 9+ points
Two other active kickers have 80+ games in this stat category: Baltimore’s Justin Tucker has 83 and ranks tied for 14th on the list; Arizona’s Matt Prater is 16th with 80 games.
As you might expect, Crosby ranks first on Green Bay’s all-time list with most regular season games with 9+ points. His 96 games are more than twice that of Ryan Longwell, who is in second place with 45.
