Broncos Lose To Bears In OT


Chicago (AP) _ The Chicago Bears roared back with two late
touchdowns in the final 5 1/2 minutes of regulation before Robbie Gould's game-winning 39-yard field goal in overtime gave the the defending NFC champions a 37-34 victory over
the Denver Broncos.

After winning the coin toss to start overtime, the Bears drove
from their 24 to the Denver 18. Gould delivered the game-winner
with less than four minutes into OT.

Special teams superstar Devin Hester was the big reason the
Bears were even within striking distance. With the Bears trailing
13-6 starting the second half, Hester delivered a 75-yard punt
return to tie the game. He then put the Bears ahead with an 88-yard
kickoff return.

Hester has 11 returns for touchdowns in his 27-game NFL career. The 5-and-6 Bears still have wild-card hopes in the NFC. The
loss drops the 5-and-6 Broncos one game back of San Diego in the
AFC West.
