SHARE Robbie Gould wins NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

There was no player as vital to the Bears 22-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders than kicker Robbie Gould. He hit three field goals, including a game-winner with seconds remaining, in Chicago’s first win of the season.

For his efforts, Gould has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

He now has three career Special Teams Player of the Week awards and has connected on 12 game-winning field goals, per ESPN. Gould is also the Bears’ record holder for career field goals made (252).

He needs only five points to surpass Kevin Butler (1,116) and become the Bears’ all-time leading scorer.

Chicago’s special teams haven’t looked great in most spots this season, but when Gould’s kicking it usually bodes well.
