Kicker Robbie Gould now holds Bears franchise record for points scored

Robbie Gould, a kicker, is the best offensive player in the history of the Chicago Bears. Well, not really, because kickers don't play on offense, but that doesn't change the fact that Gould has now scored more points than any other player in the history of the franchise.

On Sunday against the Chiefs, Gould connected on both of his field goal attempts -- a 44-yarder and a 30-yarder -- and by doing so, he passed another kicker, Kevin Butler, who accumulated 1,116 career points with the Bears from 1985-1995.

Gould, in the middle of his 11th season with the Bears, now has 1,118th points in his career. Butler congratulated Gould on Instagram while it happened.

Congrats @robbiegould09 to @chicagobears all time leading scorer! @nfl @espnnfl @espn

After breaking the record, Gould made sure to snag the football he banged through the uprights, though it looks like it took some convincing before he was awarded the ball.

In case you're wondering, Walter Payton is third on the list with 750 points.

As good as Gould. (USATSI)
