Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy isn’t ready to give up on kicker Mason Crosby after he missed five kicks in a 31-23 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.   

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, McCarthy said Monday he still believes in Crosby. However, McCarthy added the 12-year veteran needs to improve.

He’s got to make those kicks,” he said, per ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky. “He’s a proven highly successful kicker, and I believe in him, but he’s got to make those kicks. It’s a different game at halftime (if he makes those three first-half) kicks.”
