Longwell Closing in on Record

Longwell within 6 points of Hutson's mark

Kicker Ryan Longwell continued his solid season, kicking a season-high four field goals in four attempts. Among his makes was a 35-yarder in the third quarter that gave the Packers a two-point lead they never relinquished.

"Ryan stepped in and got those points for us. Those were huge points that he made," said head coach Mike Sherman. "He's been kicking the ball as accura tely as I've ever seen a kicker kick the ball. It's been dead center just about every time."

Longwell has not missed a field goal or extra point in 11 of 13 games this year. With 14 total points against the Bears (four field goals, two PAT's), he heads into the Dec. 14 game at San Diego just six points behind the legendary Don Hutson for the No. 1 spot on the Packers' all-time scoring list.
