Robbie Gould Named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Robbie Gould may have been snubbed for the 2018 Pro Bowl (he's an alternate), but his four field goals, including the game-winner in overtime against the Seattle Seahawks has still been recognized around the league. The San Francisco 49ers kicker has been named the NFC's Special Teams Player of the Week for his 14-points in the win over Seattle.

Gould made field goals from 28, 33 and 45 yards in regulation before hitting a 36-yard game-winner in overtime. He was a perfect 6-for-6 on his kicks (including his two extra points) on a day with heavy wind and rain at Levi's® Stadium. Gould said postgame that they were the hardest conditions he's kicked in since joining the 49ers in 2017.

The 14-year veteran is as good as he's ever been. He's made 29-of-30 field-goal attempts this season, and his 96.7 field goal percentage is tops in the NFL while his 29 makes rank third. Gould has made 68-of-71 of his field-goal attempts in two seasons with the 49ers.
