San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould is taking his place as one of the great playoff kickers in NFL history.

After hitting a 45-yard field goal in the snow at Lambeau Field as time expired on Saturday night, Gould is now 20-for-20 in his career in the postseason.

No kicker in NFL history has as many playoff field goals without a miss as Gould. Gould has made 12 playoff field goals with the 49ers, as well as six with the Bears and two with the Giants.

Gould is also a perfect 32-for-32 on extra points in the postseason. He’s never missed in the playoffs, and in a week he may get a chance to kick the 49ers into the Super Bowl.

  1. The Packers “Brandon Staley”‘d themselves on that last drive. They called 2 time outs near the end of the drive to get the ball back for Aaron when the 49ers were clearly willing to let the clock run down if they didn’t get in FG range so the Packers didn’t get the ball back in regulation.

    If those 2 Time outs by the Pack weren’t called, the 49ers are either kicking a 60 yard FG as time expires or kneeling for OT.

  2. It’s pure comedic Gould that Chicago tried to lowball him on the small pay kickers get and he’s gone on for 4+ years of kicking Gould in SF. They cheaped themselves and haven’t had a kicker of that quality since.

  3. The disappointment in Joe Buck’s voice as Gould’s kick sailed through was both palpable and priceless.

  4. This Viking fan shivers every time a kicker with a perfect record lines up for a critical kick.
    Gould made Gary Anderson look worse, and did Adam Vinatieri proud.

  5. Chicago tried to lowball him and pissed him off, rightfully so. He spent years being a very good kicker in the worst field in the league, without counting the wind conditions. Good for him and I’m glad he is earning this praise. He earned it.

  6. Robbie Gould still owns Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, even in a 49’ers jersey!

  7. Seeing Aaron’s facial expression as the kick sailed through the uprights was almost as good as Richard Sherman’s as Malcom Butler ripped out the Seahawk’s heart

  8. Good for Gould, the Bears gave up on him too fast. He was struggling when they let him walk, missing extra points etc. but he deserved more time to work through it. Getting Parkey as his replacement though tells you all you need to know about the failed Pace/ Nagy regime. Happy for him, he’s a good guy.
