The burning question from last week in the NFL: What was worse, the Chicago Bears' humiliating loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the wake of Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift mania, or the Denver Broncos allowing 70 points to the Miami Dolphins.

The Kansas City Chiefs dominated the headlines during their clash with the Bears, and it wasn't for the Bears' stellar performance. In fact, it was the sheer devastation inflicted upon them by the Chiefs. The game was so one-sided that the only distraction seemed to be the mention of Taylor Swift. Ouch. But was this really the worst part of their week?

On the other hand, the Denver Broncos, lost by 70 points, and it would have been more, but the Dolphins showed some mercy. In an honorable move, they refrained from attempting a field goal that would have set a new record for the most points scored in an NFL game. Dolphins wideout Robbie Chosen admitted that they could have easily put up a hundred points. They even benched their starters with a significant chunk of the fourth quarter still to go. It could have been even more brutal.

Despite these contrasting situations, both the Bears and the Broncos had a disastrous week. It's a tough argument, but let's delve deeper into their respective struggles.

Sean Payton's presence in Denver couldn't save the Broncos from their defensive debacle. The Broncos' defense, which had shown promise at the start of the season, crumbled and surrendered a whopping 70 points. It was a performance that left fans in disbelief.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, questions arose about the Bears' defensive coordinator, who found himself in the midst of an FBI raid. The details were shrouded in mystery, and nobody seemed willing to provide answers. Regardless of the legalities, it added another layer of turmoil to the Bears' already chaotic situation.

Inside the locker room, tensions were high. Quarterback Justin Fields was openly critical of his coaches, further exacerbating the turmoil within the team. Fields' struggles on the field have also led to discussions about his place among the league's worst quarterbacks, with Zach Wilson as his competition for that dubious honor.

In summary, both organizations are in disarray, and both teams seem destined to finish near the bottom of the league standings. Last week was a nightmare for the Bears, and the upcoming week doesn't look much better for them. With all these factors considered, it's a tough call to make.

Now, turning our attention to their upcoming game, the Bears face off against the Broncos. It promises to be a showdown of ineptitude, and the three-and-a-half-point spread may not be a bad bet. The Denver Broncos have been inconsistent, making it challenging to expect them to win convincingly. Yet, they have a shot, especially if they can contain Justin Fields. In this matchup, it's fair to say that the Denver offense is the stronger unit.

In conclusion, while both the Chicago Bears and the Denver Broncos had their fair share of troubles last week, it's a close call. The Bears faced an avalanche of negative publicity, but the Broncos' performance on the field was equally disheartening. With the game ahead, it's a toss-up, and football fans are in for a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
