The Broncos took over inside the Chicago red zone after a fumble by Bears running back Michael Bush was recovered by linebacker Von Miller.
Miller returned the fumble 16 yards to the Chicago 6-yard line.
As the Broncos’ offense took the field, quarterback Caleb Hanie joined the huddle, meaning the end of Peyton Manning’s day.
Manning finished 4-of-7 for 44 yards and an interception.
The Broncos took advantage of the turnover with a 28-yard field goal by Matt Prater that made the score 3-0 in favor of Denver.
