DENVER (AP) — Tim Tebow led the Broncos to another comeback victory, with Matt Prater's 51-yard field goal with 8:34 left in overtime giving Denver a 13-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Prater's 59-yarder with 3 seconds left in regulation tied the score.

It was Denver's sixth straight win, and half of them have come in OT since Tebow was promoted to starter.

After failing to score on their first 11 possessions, the Broncos (8-5) erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation.

Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas with a 10-yard touchdown pass, then got the ball back with 58 seconds left and drove Denver downfield for Prater's kick.

The Bears (7-6) won the toss in overtime and were in field goal range when Marion Barber coughed up the football at the Broncos 34 and Elvis Dumervil recovered.
