Robbie Gould is the fifth most accurate kicker in NFL history. Gould has also has kicked a career-long 54 yard field goal this season and was three of four on field goals of 50 yards or longer this season, which made coach Lovie Smith's decision to pass up 59-and 42-yard field goals in the first half curious.
The Bears had the ball on the Packers' 32-yard line when Smith passed up the 49-yarder midway through the second quarter.
"That was out of field goal range for us," Smith said. "We had to be at about the 27 going in that direction. We were just a little short as much as anything."
The wind didn't appear to be much of a factor. The streamers on top of the goal posts were fairly limp on both occasions.
"The wind was in my face," said Gould, who made a 51-yarder during warmups. "It was the right call."
