The Falcons defense came up with a huge goal-line stand in the fourth quarter that was overshadowed by the wild final minutes.
Chicago drove within inches of the end zone, but Matt Forte was stuffed on fourth down as he attempted to leap across the line. Michael Boley came in low to trip up the runner, then Lawyer Milloy and Keith Brooking finished him off.
But the Bears drove back into position for Gould's second field goal, a 32-yarder with 4 minutes to go. And they had a chance after Elam's miss snapped a streak of 30 straight field goals -- his last 15 attempts of the 2007 season, and his first 15 with the Falcons.
