The Denver Broncos looked dead in the water Sunday, trailing the Chicago Bears 28-7 late in the third quarter.
Out of nowhere though, Denver has rallied, scoring three straight touchdowns to tie the game at 28. Russell Wilson threw for the first two and linebacker Jonathon Cooper returned a Justin Fields fumble for the third score.
The Broncos' furious rally has shocked media and fans alike.
Opta Stats also noted that the Bears now have the dubious distinction of being the first team in NFL history to allow 25 or more points in 14 consecutive games.
Of course, there's still the matter of winning the game, which Denver hasn't done yet. However, they just did stop the Bears on 4th-and-1 in Broncos territory with less than three minutes remaining, potentially setting the stage for the winning score.
A victory today in Chicago would not only be the first of the season for Denver, it would also be the first of the Sean Payton era. The Broncos lost close games to the Raiders and Commanders in Weeks 1 and 2 before getting blown out 70-20 by the Miami Dolphins last weekend.2023-10-01T19:59:01Z dg43tfdfdgfd
