Robbie Gould needs five points to become the Bears' all-time leading scorer.

Gould made all three field goals he attempted, including a 54-yarder and a 49-yard game-winner with :02 remaining to give the Bears their first victory of the season.

It was the 12th game-winner of Gould's 11-year career with the Bears, with the last eight and nine overall coming at Soldier Field. Gould has converted all nine of his field-goal attempts this season and is the seventh most accurate kicker in NFL history at 86.0 percent.

Gould has made the most field goals (252) and field goals of at least 50 yards (19) in Bears history and needs just five points to eclipse Kevin Butler's franchise record for most points (1,116).

Gould is also the second most accurate kicker in NFL history from 50 yards and beyond, converting 19 of 24 attempts (76.0). He trails only the Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski (77.8 percent).

Gould has now won three NFC player of the week awards, tying him with Jeff Jaeger and Paul Edinger for the most by a Bears kicker.
