Mike Glennon throws pick-six on second pass vs. Broncos

Hub Arkush: Plenty of position battles to pay attention to in Bears' first preseason game against Broncos Mike Glennon throws pick-six on second pass vs. Broncos (Video)

De'Angelo Henderson broke a touchdown run 41 yards on a draw play with 1:49 left, and the Broncos topped the Bears 24-17 on a night when Chicago's Mitchell Trubisky stole the spotlight from the Denver quarterback battle.

So much for fresh starts. The Bears gave up a king's ransom for a relatively small payoff - there was no guarantee Trubisky was going to be taken by another team - and while Trubisky clearly had talent, he wasn't considered a can't-miss quarterback prospect.

Sloter finished the game 5-6 for 94 passing yards, one touchdown and a flawless passer rating of 158.3.

Glennon's had both good and bad days since the Bears reported to training camp in late July, but this one was about as terrible as possible and came on a much grander stage.

Though the team has insisted Glennon is the starter, the prized rookie did his best to ramp up the debate.

The first seven minutes were embarrassing. It just happened more quickly than anticipated. How they open in Arizona in nine days will now matter a lot more. Trubisky is third on the depth chart behind Glennon and Sanchez.

Of note again was rookie running back Tarik Cohen.

Karan Johar finally shares first picture of twins Yash and Roohi
Did Kajol take a dig at Karan Johar? But now with the latest development, looks like the duo are ready to forgive and forget! Earlier, Johar uploaded a picture of his twins Yash and Roohi - the first public unveiling of the 6-month old twins.

On defense, Jonathan Bullard appeared to have come a long way during the offseason, and there is no question that Nick Kwiatkoski is a stud against the run.

Remember, general manager Ryan Pace called Glennon on draft night while the veteran was at Soldier Field for the team's draft party - surprise! - to inform him he would be the starter.

The Bears won't, and shouldn't yet, but his early progress is encouraging.

During his third and fourth series, Lynch began throwing the short passes to Latimer and developed somewhat of a rhythm - totaling three first downs and 50 total offensive yards.

Oddsmaker Bovada.lv has listed the the Broncos as a 1-point favorite in their preseason opener at the Bears, while the over-under is set at 35.5.

"Each time I'm in there with my teammates just show command at the line of scrimmage, drive the ball down the field, be efficient, pick up first downs and hopefully finish in the end zone a couple times".

As much effort as the Bears have put into submarining any notion they could have an actual competition for spots on the quarterback depth chart, it's hard to imagine the exhibition opener would lead the powers that be to reverse direction.
