The good Mason Crosby is back, and he’s got the hardware to prove it.

The Packers kicker was named NFC special teams player of the week, after hitting all five of his field goals and an extra point in last week’s win over the Lions.

Crosby is a perfect 9-of-9 on field goals this year, after an uncharacteristic dip in accuracy last season (a career-low 63.6 percent).

That forced him to compete for his job this offseason (and take a pay cut), but he’s delivering again.
