Gould kicks Bears to dramatic win

Robbie Gould kicks a 38-yard field goal in overtime to lift the Chicago Bears to a dramatic 20-17 win over the Green Bay Packers.

CHICAGO // Robbie Gould kicked a 38-yard field goal in overtime to lift the Chicago Bears to a dramatic 20-17 win over the Green Bay Packers yesterday. It was the second successive game-winning field goal in overtime for Gould, who kicked a 35-yard field goal last week in a win over New Orleans. Chicago (9-6 win-loss) kept their play-off hopes alive with the unlikely win, as the Packers (5-10) dominated most of the night but squandered several chances on their way to their fifth successive defeat.

The Packers had a chance to win the game with 25 seconds left, but the Bears Alex Brown blocked Mason Crosby's 38-yard field goal attempt to force the overtime. *Reuters
