L, 16-14 vs. Bears
Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio’s reunion against his former employer, the Chicago Bears, didn’t exactly go according to plan.
At least not with the Bears quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky, engineering enough of a two-minute drive to lead to a game-winning Chicago field goal.
That might have been the only exciting thing about this game, which saw both underdeliver. At least Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco seemed to have more success than he did against the Oakland Raiders in Week 1, although not by much.
And where were Broncos pass-rushers Von Miller and Bradley Chubb, outside of that one roughing-the-passer call? The officials certainly didn’t earn fans in Denver, by the way.
Chubb managed two hits on Trubisky, but that wasn’t enough to thwart what little Chicago had to do, offensively.
0-2 isn’t the kind of start Fangio envisioned when he took over coaching duties, and the Broncos will look to regroup on the road in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers. Denver’s defense will likely have to shoulder the load early this season, but at least it has the tools to do so.
