This has become routine for Robbie Gould.

The 14-year veteran kicker won the NFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week award after connecting on all three of his field goals and three extra points last Sunday. With his second field goal make, Gould notched his 28th straight made field goal, breaking Phil Dawson’s previous franchise record. He currently has made 29 straight. Gould connected on all six of his field goal attempts and four extra points this season.

Gould won the award in two of the final five weeks (Weeks 13 and 15) last year after nailing game-winning field goals in each game. During a three-game stretch from Week 13 to Week 15, Gould became the first kicker in NFL history to make 15 field goals over a three-game span.

Since the 49ers acquired him prior to the 2017 season, Gould has made 45 of his 47 attempts. At 85.105 percent, Gould’s career make rate is the fifth-best of all-time.

During training camp, Gould talked with KNBR and said he is feeling better physically than he ever has. That’s been backed up with incredible production throughout his short 49ers tenure.
