For the second time this year, a Green Bay Packers player has earned a league nod as the best NFC player that week in his position group.

Kicker Mason Crosby has been named the NFC special teams player of the week for his performance against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Crosby kicked five field goals of at least 40 yards in the 30-13 Packers win, tying a team record.

His field goals of 42, 47, 40, 42 and 52 yards make him the first player in NFL history to kick five 40-plus yard field goals.

He has earned six special teams player of the week awards in his career.

Aaron Rodgers earned the offensive award for his performance in Week 3 against Kansas City.
