Gould converted his only field-goal attempt from 42 yards out while adding a PAT in Sunday's 40-10 loss to Dallas. Gould delivered when he was asked to in this one, but he wasn't given many opportunities after the team fell behind big early. The 49ers began the second half down by three scores, so they bypassed two potential field-goal opportunities deep in Dallas' territory in favor of going for it on fourth down (unsuccessfully). Add in a red-zone turnover, and you have the recipe for a low-scoring day for the veteran kicker. Gould has been extremely accurate this season, so his owners will be hoping for a more favorable game flow next week against the Eagles.
Gould hit from 52 yards out, but missed a 47-yard field-goal attempt in Sunday's 26-24 loss to Washington. He converted all three point-after tries. The 34-year-old's miss broke a streak of 32 consecutive successful field-goal tries dating back to the 2015 season. Gould still owns a solid 93.8 percent conversion rate, and his 15 field goals are tied for second among all NFL kickers. The veteran could see an increase in scoring opportunities now that rookie C.J. Beathard has taken over as the team's starting quarterback.
Gould nailed all three of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to Indianapolis. Gould is now a perfect 14-for-14 on field-goal attempts through five games. The 34-year-old continues to see heavy usage for a 49ers offense that struggles to finish off drives when it enters the opponent's side of the field. Gould should be a safe kicking option next week against the Redskins.
Gould was a perfect 5-for-5 on field-goal attempts in Sunday's 18-15 overtime loss to the Cardinals. Gould was the second-highest scoring kicker Sunday, trailing only Greg Zuerlein's seven field goals. These were no chip shots either, with four of his five attempts coming from 39 yards or deeper. The 34-year-old continues to be the model of consistency with 28 consecutive field-goal conversions, a streak that dates back to the 2015 season. Gould should be considered a premium kicking option next week against a Colts team that has given up the most points per game (34.0) this season.
Gould converted all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 12-9 loss to Seattle. The 49ers offense struggled to move the ball for the second consecutive week, but the veteran kicker held up his end of the bargain on the few drives that actually went deep into Seattle's territory. Gould's accuracy -- combined with his club's red-zone struggles -- should make him a viable kicking option this week against the Rams.
