A day after Mason Crosby missed three potential game-winning field goals before finally sealing the victory on his fourth try, coach Matt LaFleur absolved the 37-year-old kicker of some of the blame.

"I think there's just some things that we absolutely need to clean up just from an operation standpoint," LaFleur said Monday of the Packers' overtime win at the Cincinnati Bengals. "You can't put all of that on Mason. I thought there's some areas that we have to make sure we get corrected, and we will."

In the special teams world, "operation" is code for snap, hold and protection.

Long-snapper Hunter Bradley has struggled with snap accuracy. Holder Corey Bojorquez is new this season and there have been protection issues -- a near block on the game-winning field goal in Week 3 and a block that was called back by a penalty in Week 4.

"I'm not going to throw anybody under the bus, so I'm not going to expand on that," LaFleur said. "Sorry, you're going to have to watch the tape, evaluate it yourself and come up with your own conclusions there."

Crosby on Sunday said he's his own harshest critic and would fix whatever went wrong. He had made 27 consecutive regular-season field goals, including his first three Sunday against the Bengals. He then missed from 36 yards with 2:12 left in regulation, from 51 on the final play of regulation and from 40 after Packers linebacker De'Vondre Campbell intercepted Joe Burrow on the first play of overtime.
