What’s better for a Chicago Bears fan than a Green Bay Packers playoff loss?

A Packers playoff loss thanks to the foot of a former Bear.

Ex-Bears kicker Robbie Gould sent the Packers home after time was up with his 45-yard field goal that sent the San Francisco 49ers to a 13-10 NFC divisional round win.

Gould was 2-for-2 in the game on field goals, previously nailing a 29-yarder in the second quarter. He was also successful in his lone extra point attempt.

The 49ers were 10-3 down with less than five minutes to go before their special teams emerged with a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown to level the game. San Francisco then milked the clock on a nine-game, 44-yard drive for the final 3:20 of the game, finishing with Gould’s game-winner.

They now face the winners of the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship.

The veteran kicker played 11 seasons for the Bears and is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer. He’s in his fifth season with the 49ers.
