Chicago Bears rookie Running Back Jeremy Langford was stuffed at the line of scrimmage on a potentially game-tying two-point conversion in the final :30 seconds, and the Bears fell to Denver 17-15 on a sunny but frigid day at Soldier Field .
The failed conversion ended a frustrating afternoon for the Bears, who drop to 4-6 and saw their two-game win streak snapped. Meanwhile, Denver snapped a two-game losing streak and improved to 8-2.
Chicago drove 65-yards capped by Langford’s two-yard plunge to make things interesting late. But the Broncos stingy run defense was ready on the contest’s penultimate play. The Bears found the going tough on the ground, mustering just 86-yards, making the final call worthy of debate.

Jay Cutler threw three touchdown passes, and both Zach Miller and Jeremy Langford scored two touchdowns apiece as the Chicago Bears dominated the St. Louis Rams 37-13 Sunday afternoon at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.
The win marked the second impressive road victory for the Bears, who were coming off a short week after last Monday night’s victory in San Diego. The Bears improve to 4-5, while the Rams failed in their bid to move past the .500 mark and drop to 4-5.
Cutler continued his strong play, displaying a calm pocket presence in guiding the Bears offense to 397 total yards in a commanding offensive performance that would have been even more dominating had they not stopped off the gas in the second half. Cutler finished 19-of-24 for 258 yards, three scores, and perhaps more importantly, no interceptions. He was aided by a Chicago offensive line that kept an aggressive St. Louis defensive front at bay.
Cutler rallies Bears and becomes team’s all-time leader in touchdown passes.
For nearly three quarters, the Chicago Bears appeared to be fumbling, stumbling, and bumbling their way to a third straight loss. But as they have for much of the season, the Bears rallied behind Jay Cutler to a thrilling 22-19 victory over reeling San Diego in Monday night football action at Qualcomm Stadium.
The win improves Chicago’s record to 3-5, while the Chargers drop to 2-7.
The unlikely result came after the Bears had fallen behind 16-7 in the third quarter, mostly due to their own mistakes…two missed Robbie Gould field goals (from 47 and 34 yards), and two Cutler mistakes, a pick six and a strip/fumble with the Bears in the San Diego redzone.
Still, there were enough positive contributions to highlight: READ MORE
