Close games seem to be the theme for the Bears this season. Sunday’s loss to the Broncos is the seventh game this season that was decided by single digits for Chicago.
Trailing 17-9 late in the game Jeremy Langford scored a 2-yard touchdown to cap off a 65-yard drive for the Bears with 24 seconds left on the clock. That was the first touchdown of the game for the Bears. Down 17-15 the Bears went back to Langford looking to tie the game with a two-point conversion. But the Broncos sniffed the play out from the snap and stopped Langford for no gain ending any hopes for overtime.
“We just didn’t’ execute enough early. Not scoring a touchdown until the last minute,” says Bears Right Tackle Kyle Long. “That falls on us as an offensive line. We need to be able to run the ball and produce those chunks offensively and give Jay (Cutler) a chance to be able to have some stuff open up on the back end.”
With the loss the Bears fall to 1-4 at home this season.
