1Q

The first drive for the Bears didn't go far, Foles was able to draw the defense into the neutral zone with a hard count but other than a few yards gained from Patterson runs, and an Allen Robinson first down, there was not much offense in the first drive of the game. The Bears are on defense now and will have to hold up against Phillip Rivers and the firepower the Colts offense has. Not to mention a blocked punt. 

 

 

The Colts first drive ends in a Colts TD, Phil Rivers threw a 16-yard touchdown to Colts TE Alie-Cox in 6 plays for a total of 53 yards.  Blankenship knocks the PAT through. 7-0 Colts. 

 

The Colts defense put up another solid stand on against the Bears offense. The Bears have not moved the ball well to start the game, that is going to have to change quickly. 

 

Khalil Mack dropped the easiest pick of his life on the Bears stand. However, the Bears put pressure on Rivers and were able to hold off their offense. Bears ball out of the media timeout. 

 

The Bears once again did not move the ball on offense, making it easy for the Colts to establish drives. Foles looks like he doesn't have the "chemistry" with his receivers, or there might be nerves involved. Overthrowing receivers, underthrowing them, and making throws when guys arent looking. 

 

The first quarter has concluded and the Colts have a 7-0 lead over the Bears.

2Q

 

Phil Rivers tried to pull some trickery on 4th & 1 to try and get the Bears to jump offsides to end the drive. 

 

The Bears put together a solid drive for their first possession of the second quarter. Getting to the red-zone, but not couldn't convert. The issues that the Bears had last week in the red-zone are looming once again. 

 

Smith was out of bounds on that interception, which gave the Colts an opportunity to score yet another touchdown. Rivers Pass to Hilton was too high, on the third-down play in the end zone. Blankenship knocks an FG through. 10-3 Colts, the Bears have a chance to tie it up before halftime.
