Colts vs. Bears: Indianapolis' Biggest Winners & Losers from NFL Week 1

The Indianapolis Colts opened a new era today and it couldn’t have gone much worse for the final three quarters. After the Colts started off on three great defensive stands, the defense became nonexistent and the offense showed the need to mature quickly.

Indianapolis was tied with Chicago 7-7 after the first quarter, but ended up losing 41-21. That says it all. The Colts had so many costly mistakes that if they didn’t happen, they would easily have won the game.

Chicago is in trouble for the fact everything they were given was off Indianapolis’ mistakes. I know the Colts are young and inexperienced, but dropped passes, missed tackles and mistakes in coverage are inexcusable.

Credit the Bears for capitalizing on those mistakes, but they didn’t look as good as a great team should. If Indianapolis didn’t make costly mistakes on ill-advised times, the Colts easily would be the victors.

I’ve graded the biggest winners and losers from the game and this is what I’ve given them.
