GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Perhaps no one enjoyed the Packers’ bye week more than kicker Mason Crosby.

He took a trip with his family to North Carolina, giving him a chance to unwind and come back for what he hopes will be a much better second half of the season.

Crosby has made only five of his last 10 field goal tries. The Packers (6-3) play at Detroit (4-5) on Sunday.

A year ago, Crosby made 24 of 28 attempts for a career-high percentage of 85.7. This year, he is 10 of 15, a 67 percent rate that is the lowest in the NFL this season among active kickers.

Green Bay will be without linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring), safety Charles Woodson (collarbone) and receiver Greg Jennings (groin/abdomen) on Sunday.
