    The Chicago Bears were struggling to score points against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but at least one of their players had a historic day as Robbie Gould set a new team record.

    With a third quarter field goal against the Chiefs, Gould became the Bears’ all-time leading scorer, scoring his 1,118th point with the team thanks to the kick. That total surpasses the 1,116 points that former kicker Kevin Butler accumulated for the Bears during his career.

    Gould has been with the Bears since the 2005 season, and is the longest-tenured member of the team. He has only missed seven games during his career, and he has made 86.1 percent of his career field goals and 98.9 percent of his career extra point attempts.

    Walter Payton is currently the third-highest scorer in Bears history, with 750 points to his credit during his NFL career.
