DENVER (AP) -- Kordell Stewart could have complained and sulked after being replaced as Chicago's starter. Instead, he kept his mouth shut and his mind ready.
No, if Chris Chandler is healthy, he's the starter. Chandler gives the Bears a better opportunity to compete and pull out victories. Stewart still doesn't seem confident and doesn't give them the best chance for a victory.
Question on the Broncos: How could the Broncos allow this to happen?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
The coldest home game in Denver history was against San Diego on Dec. 10, 1972, when the temperature at kickoff was 9 degrees. ... It was the first regular-season meeting between the teams since Nov. 10, 1996, a 17-12 win by Denver. ... Broncos WR Ed McCaffrey returned after missing four games with a quadriceps tendon injury. He dropped two passes, including a potential 29-yard touchdown in the first quarter. ... Portis' 11.79 per-carry average broke the team record of 11 set by David Rolle against Oakland on Oct. 12, 1960.
