Denver Broncos: Offense clicks, but lose against Chicago Bears
By Tylor Walden
The Denver Broncos offense was solid, but the third string defense fell apart as the Chicago Bears secured a win in the late stages of the game.
In their second preseason game, the Denver Broncos first team offense did start off sluggish, but woke up and got some solid production for a quarter and a half. Case Keenum does need to control his passing a little bit. Some of his passes were high for Broncos receivers.
After the safety by Bradley Chubb, the Broncos first team offense got the ball rolling. That drive would end in a field goal, but it showed some promise that an offense led by Keenum can be promising. He did have a pass completed for a two point conversion after the first touchdown by the first team offense.
Chad Kelly had his first game action with the second team. He continued his production from the last game and threw a touchdown strike to Courtland Sutton.
Kelly would finish the game seven of nine passing for 90 yards and a touchdown. It will be interesting to see if he can continue this production. If he can, he could very well cement himself as the backup to Case Keenum.

The Broncos defense looked solid for some of the game. Demarcus Walker and Clinton McDonald recorded sacks as a Denver Broncos. Justin Simmons recorded an interception that led to the Chad Kelly touchdown.
The Broncos showed some promise at the end, but a fumble within striking distance of a field goal ended any hope of a comeback.
This game provided a lot of hope for Broncos Country. The next game will see if the first team can put it all together for a long period of time. It should be exciting.
Denver has concluded their home part of the preseason. Broncos Country will not see the team at home again until the regular season. The Broncos will travel to Washington D.C. for their dress rehearsal preseason contest against the Washington Redskins, which is a Friday night game.
