Green Bay - Mason Crosby heard the roar from the crowd - loud and clear. His 47-yard field goal split the uprights and the noise was palpable at Lambeau Field. Part relief, part "about time," part bear hug. Whatever that cheer was, Crosby is thankful. "That says a lot," he said. "People want to see me do well, and I want to do well for the fans, for this team, for myself and for my family. So it's a good feeling. For me, it builds confidence." Maybe that kick and this game is a turning point for Crosby. Buried in a multi-game funk, Crosby hit 3 of 4 kicks in the Green Bay Packers' 23-14 win Sunday over the Minnesota Vikings. There's no understating the importance of Crosby's confidence. The playoffs are closing in fast. Come January, the team's fate may rest completely on Crosby's right foot...
