After beating his former team in Chicago last week, San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould has been named the NFC Special Team’s Player of the Week.

In the 49ers 15-14 win over the Bears on Sunday, Gould kicked five field goals including the game winner with 9 seconds left on the clock.

The Bears released Gould after 11 years in Chicago just before the start of the 2016 season. Since then Chicago has been unable to find a consistent kicker, while Gould has been very consistent, going  26-for-28 on field goals for the 49ers this year.
