November 21, 2018 - 8:50 am

(670 The Score) Bears kicker Cody Parkey hoped to bounce back after missing four kicks off the uprights on Nov. 11. That's exactly what he did.

Parkey was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance this past Sunday, one in which he connected on all three field goals he attempted in the Bears' 25-20 win over the Vikings. 

Part of Parkey's big night was hitting a 48-yard field goals with 2:48 remaining in the game, helping the Bears seal what proved to be a pivotal win over their division rivals.
