The fortunes of the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts for the 2016 season have been well-documented. Each team is having a horrible time so far with a 1-3 record for both teams going into a Sunday afternoon showdown at Lucas Oil Stadium. There is no telling what the future looks like for both Jay Cutler and Andrew Luck with Luck struggling in Indianapolis and Cutler being hurt and not well-regarded in Chicago. This game is a big one for both teams. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Bears finally won their first game of the season with a 17-14 win over the Detroit Lions with Brian Hoyer starting at quarterback for the injured Cutler. Hoyer has passed for 697 yards and four touchdowns on the season. Alshon Jeffery has 17 catches for 317 yards to lead the pass game and is turning into a favorite target for Hoyer just like Kevin White and Zach Miller. Jordan Howard is now the running back and has 178 yards on the ground for the season. This should be a great test for the defense to see how much they have improved as they face a quality quarterback in Luck.
The Colts lost in London 30-27 to the Jacksonville Jaguars and are the first team to play the week after they were in London. Luck has thrown for 1,147 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions for the year but needs to get more wins. T.Y. Hilton has 25 catches for 336 yards and two touchdowns to lead the pass game while Frank Gore is his consistent self yet again with 253 rushing yards and two touchdowns for the season. The defense will be tested with the jetlag and now faces a seemingly better Chicago team to deal with as both teams try to get to 2-3 for the season.
