Fans of the Dallas Cowboys aren't happy that Packers kicker Mason Crosby had the first missed field goal of these NFL playoffs.
Kickers had connected on 33 field goals through the wild card and divisional games before Crosby missed a 41-yard field goal wide right in the first quarter of the NFC championship game at Atlanta. That also snapped Crosby's NFL postseason record of 23 consecutive field goals.
Crosby's missed FG was also the FIRST missed FG by any kicker this postseason after 33 makes in Wild Card and Divisional rounds https://t.co/CNyg1zkdiP

Crosby's miss only added to the pain of Cowboys' fans with his miss coming a week too late for their tastes. Crosby kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired in Dallas last week.
After hitting from 56 and 51 yards within :98 seconds vs DAL, Now Mason Crosby decides to miss? Really? #GBvsATL
