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.
