A 21-point lead in the third quarter was not enough for the Chicago Bears to win their first win of the season in the NFL against the Denver Broncos. The team, where the German-American Equanimeous St. Brown caught a pass for the first time this season, lost 28:7 and lost to the previously winless Broncos 28:31.
Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson ended up with three touchdown passes, one fewer than Justin Fields. However, the Bears playmaker made a bad pass in the final phase, sealing the fourth defeat in the Bears' fourth game of the season - and the 14th defeat in a row across the entire season.
The Bills stop the Dolphins
In the AFC East, the Buffalo Bills picked up an important win and stopped the Miami Dolphins' winning streak. Quarterback Josh Allen showed an outstanding performance in the entertaining game with a total of 68 points and had four touchdown passes and a self-scored touchdown in the 48:20. Both teams now have three wins and one defeat.
The Philadelphia Eagles are the only team in the league with four wins. Last season's Super Bowl participant had to go into overtime in the 34:31 loss against the Washington Commanders.
For the Cincinnati Bengals, however, the series of disappointments continues. The Super Bowl participants from two years ago lost 3:27 to the Tennessee Titans and already have three defeats in four games. Titans running back Derrick Henry had a touchdown run and also recorded a touchdown pass. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who had a calf injury, only managed 165 yards through passes.
