Packers kicker Mason Crosby hit a 43-yard field goal to pull his team within seven against the Vikings on Sunday night.

While the kick was important, Crosby made an even bigger play on the ensuing kickoff. Vikings kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson, one of the NFL’s fastest men, appeared on his way to a touchdown which could put this game away when Crosby was able to run him down and knck the ball out of his left arm.

That allowed Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense to march down the field to try and tie the game but unfortunately for the Packer faithful that drive ended with an interception in the endzone on fourth down.
