In a season that was expected to bring redemption and resurgence, the Denver Broncos’ defense has found itself under the harsh spotlight once again. After a demoralizing Week 3 loss to the Miami Dolphins, where the Broncos allowed a whopping 70 points, hopes were high that they would bounce back strong. However, their performance in the following week has left Broncos fans questioning the state of the team’s defense.

Facing off against the struggling Chicago Bears offense, the Broncos seemed to have an opportunity for redemption. Instead, the Broncos allowed nearly 500 total yards (471) and 28 points. Broncos’ rookie quarterback Justin Fields, who had struggled earlier in the season, suddenly appeared to have the Midas touch, throwing for 335 yards and four touchdowns. Running back Khalil Herbert even eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark.

Broncos' Defensive Woes Continue to Haunt Them

It was a nightmarish performance for the Broncos’ defense, with few silver linings to be found. But perhaps the most concerning aspect was that their defense only came alive in the dying moments of the game. They managed to stop the Bears on downs late in the fourth quarter, giving the Broncos’ offense a chance to march downfield for the game-winning field goal. While it secured an ugly 31-28 victory, it didn’t erase the defensive woes.

Comparisons to last season’s struggles, primarily attributed to quarterback Russell Wilson, have now shifted squarely onto the shoulders of the Broncos’ defense. Head coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Vance Joseph face mounting pressure to find solutions quickly.

The question now is whether this is just a rough patch for the Broncos’ defense or a deeper issue that needs addressing. It’s one thing to struggle against the likes of Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins, but when a rookie quarterback like Fields and the Bears can run wild, it’s a clear sign that there is a significant problem that needs urgent attention.
