The Green Bay Packers claimed their fourth win of the season in heart-stopping fashion on Sunday afternoon, watching veteran kicker Mason Crosby miss three consecutive field goals down the stretch against the Cincinnati Bengals before finally putting one through — from 49 yards away — in overtime.

The Packers, though, could have gone a different direction instead of letting Crosby attempt a game-winner for the fourth time. Facing fourth-and-inches after the Bengals’ 32-yard line, head coach Matt LaFleur knew he could trust Aaron Rodgers and the offense to get the first down, if necessary, and close the distance some more.

“That definitely crossed my mind, especially there at the end when it was fourth-and-inches,” LaFleur told reporters in the postgame.

Instead, the third-year head coach found Crosby on the sideline and deferred to him.
