Broncos Stun Bears 13-10 At Mile High
The Denver Broncos’ magic continues after coming back to defeat the Chicago Bears 13-10 this afternoon at Mile High. Broncos kicker Matt Prater drilled a 59-yard field goal with :03 left in the game to tie things up 10-10, then hit a 51-yarder in overtime to give Denver its sixth win in a row, and seventh win in the last eight games.
Chicago appeared to be headed for a win in the opening drive of overtime, before the Broncos recovered a fumble by Chicago’s Marion Barber on Denver’s 34. Prater’s game-winning field goal came at the end of the ensuing drive.
Denver’s win today coupled with Oakland’s loss at Green Bay leaves the Broncos alone on top of the AFC West division with just three weeks remaining in the regular season. Next Sunday the Broncos play host to the New England Patriots back at Mile High.
