Broncos score 24 straight to win against Chicago Bears
With four minutes remaining in the third quarter, Denver was down 28-7 following Justin Fields’ fourth touchdown pass. The Bears lost the lead with less than nine minutes remaining, so they must have somehow grown overconfident.
Although the Chicago Bears have a reputation for having excellent defense, the squad recently established a record that no one wants to own. On Sunday, the Bears led the Denver Broncos 28-7, but they allowed Denver to win the game in the fourth quarter by scoring 24 unanswered points.
With 31 points, the Broncos became the 14th straight Bears opponent to score at least 25 points in a game, and according to OptaSTATS, that makes the Bears the first team in NFL history to achieve that feat:

The Bears had one of the weakest defenses in the NFL going into the game, allowing 407.3 yards and 35.3 points per contest. The Broncos’ yardage is third-worst in the league, and their 35.3 points per game probably would have been the lowest if they hadn’t let the Miami Dolphins score 70 points last week.
