Bears Vs. Broncos Final Score: Matt Prater Kicks Game-Winning FG For Denver's 13-10 Victory

They did it again. The Denver Broncos picked up another victory with Tim Tebow at the helm. After Tebow threw a touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas for the team's first score of the game and Matt Prater kicked the game-tying 59-yard field goal with seconds left in regulation, the Broncos saw Matt Prater kick a 51-yard field goal to win the game against the Chicago Bears.

While Tebow and Prater are certainly a big part of this victory, the Broncos should be thankful for Bears running back Marion Barber. He went out of bounds and stopped the clock on the Bears' final drive of regulation, allowing the Broncos to have enough time to stop the Bears from running out the clock. Then during overtime, the Bears were getting ready to set up for a field goal when Barber ran the ball, picked up decent yardage, had the ball stripped by Wesley Woodyard and saw Elvis Dumervil pick it up:

That turnover allowed Tebow to set up the drive that ended with the Matt Prater game winning field goal:


Just like his 59-yarder, Prater had more than enough leg on the kick to make this a successful one.

The Broncos are now 8-5 and 7-1 since Tim Tebow took over as starter. They are also on a six-game winning streak.

VIDEO: Matt Prater Nails Game-Tying 59-Yard Field Goal

Sometimes when we deal with Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos, we just need to stay quiet and stare in awe at what happens. Like on Sunday, when the Broncos score 10 points in the final two minutes of the game. Matt Prater kicked a 59-yard field goal with just seconds left in the game to tie it at 10. He was as cool as ice when kicking the field goal, one-upping Robbie Gould, who kicked a 57-yard field goal to set the Chicago Bears' franchise record.

Here's Prater's kick:


That's just one of the best kicks we'll ever see. High pressure, game on the line and he nails it. Tebow Time, it's not just for Tim Tebow.

Bears Vs. Broncos Halftime Score: Ineffective Offenses Leave Game Tied At 0-0

The Denver Broncos and the Chicago Bears are deadlocked in a game of mostly harmless offenses. At halftime, the Broncos and the Bears are deadlocked at zero. Both teams had late opportunities to put points on the board and take what would have felt like an insurmountable lead. The Bears' last drive of the half stalled just a few yards into Broncos territory and resulted in Caleb Hanie nearly throwing an interception into the hands of Chris Harris. However, Harris wasn't able to come up with the pick, forcing the Bears to punt.

The Broncos attempted a 28-yard field goal on the previous drive, but it was blocked by three Bears players.

Tim Tebow had several nice runs, including a bruising (for his opponents) 16-yard first down run, but that was the drive that ended with the block. He is 3-of-13 for 45 yards with one interception. He's rushed the ball four times for 27 yards.

Willis McGahee, dealing with a knee injury, has been rotated in and out so far, picking up 33 yards on 12 carries Jeremiah Johnson and Lance Ball have already appeared in the game.

The Broncos have won the first half battle of ineffective offenses with 135 total yards to the Bears' 84.

Week 14 NFL Picks And Predictions: Denver Broncos Receiving Kiss Of Death Against Chicago Bears?

The Denver Broncos appear to ready to make a clean sweep of things this week among the NFL experts selections, at least based on what CBS Sports' panel of five experts have done. In a straight pick 'em the CBS sports group of five have all selected the Broncos to defeat the Chicago Bears on Sunday. It's actually a solid choice, given the Bears' struggles against the Kansas City Chiefs in a 10-3 loss last Sunday. And, as has been noted for a few weeks, quarterback Jay Cutler is out for the game. Running back Matt Forte will also be out for the game.

It seems almost too good to be true for the Broncos in this game, and the experts are expecting the Broncos to win. Yet, this also seems like it could turn into the kiss of death. Of course, when the selection went up against the spread, only Peter Prisco selected the Bears to stop the Broncos from covering the 3.5 point spread.

A 7-1 record under Tim Tebow certainly looks in sight for the Broncos, but are we discounting the Bears too early?
