The Chicago Bears rallied to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and edged the Denver Broncos, 24-23, in the second preseason game.

The Bears responded by scoring a touchdown on Chase Daniel's four-yard pass to Taquan Mizzell with 4:38 left and the Bears were within 23-17.

Then on the next possession, Daniel drove the Bears 54 yards in nine plays and hit Ben Braunecker on a 12-yard touchdown pass. Cody Parkey's extra point gave the Bears their first and only lead, 24-23, with 1:59 to go.
