Games like these are like an unexpected punch to the midsection. You’re left doubling over wondering what in the world hit you.
The Broncos had everything going their way against the Bears. They led 34-20 with 10:38 left in the fourth quarter. Then things caved in.
A special teams unit that had been steadily improving fell apart. A defense that had shut down the Bears’ offense suddenly allowed a bevy of big plays.
Inconsistency reared its ugly head again and the Broncos are left to think about what could have been.
It would have been great to stay in a tie with the Chargers for first place in the AFC West. It would have been a dominating road win. It could have been another step on the way to a possibly incredible second half of the season.
All is not lost with five games left. But there’s no doubt that the picture is considerably less rosy after handing the Bears a win.
Games such as these try the core of a team. The Broncos have responded to adversity all season long. They have that opportunity again.
How confident are you the Broncos will rebound from this tough loss? Feel free to leave your thoughts.
Thanks for reading,
