The Chicago Bears opened their regular season with a 41-21 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. The Bears offense was firing on all cylinders after a slow start and the defense did everything they could to make rookie Andrew Luck's first game a difficult one.
The blowout victory allowed the Bears to give linebacker Brian Urlacher most of the second half off who came into the game missing all of the preseason due to a lingering knee injury. The team did not miss a beat as they outscored the Colts 17-7 in the second half.
The new look Bears figured to make a statement as they get ready for a short turnaround. The team will head to Green Bay on Thursday to take on the division rival Packers.
