Robbie Gould misses first kick of season against San Diego

SHARE Robbie Gould misses first kick of season against San Diego

Bears kicker Robbie Gould is as consistent as they come in the NFL. He’s been so reliable football fans marveled when the Bears all-time scoring leader hooked a kick wide-left in Monday night’s contest against the San Diego Chargers.

The day started off with Gould looking primed for another solid game. He was nailing difficult kicks in warmups from further distance than the 47-yarder he missed early.

He even hit a couple trick shots to warm up the ole leg cannon.

Yet, in a strange twist of fate, he missed an easy kick to put the Bears up early.

It was the first miss of season for Gould. His last missed opportunity came Nov. 23 of last year against the Buccaneers.
