What Did You Miss Monday?

Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby is hugged by teammates after kicking the game-winning field goal against the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field.

--A week after missing five kicks, Mason Crosby kicked the game winner for the Green Bay Packers.  Crosby's 27-yard field goal as time expired to give the Packers a 33-30 comeback victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football at Lambeau Field. It was Crosby's fourth field goal of the night. He was good from 29, 39 and 51 yards before the game winner.

--Bakari Grant is back in the CFL.  Grant signed a deal with the Calgary Stampeders Monday. This will be his second tour of duty with the team.

--Regina Rams defensive back Cord Delinte is the Canada West defensive player of the week.  He had two interceptions in Regina's win over Alberta last Friday night.

--Orlando Arcia's 3rd homer of the playoffs helped Milwaukee to a 4-0 win over the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLCS.  Milwaukee now leads the best of seven 2-1. Former Dodgers announcer Vin Scully said thanks, but no thanks to a request by FOX to join Joe Buck in the broadcast booth for part of the game.  The 90 year old, who retired at the end of the 2016 season, said he didn't belong in the booth and didn't want to take the spotlight away from them.

--To most people around the world, Paul Allen was the co-founder of software giant Microsoft. To sports fans, he was a benevolent owner of three professional sports franchises in the Pacific Northwest – the NFL's Seattle Seahawks, the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers and as a part-owner of Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders FC. Allen died Monday of complications from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which he announced had resurfaced two weeks ago after being successfully treated in 2009. He was 65.
