The Colts picked up the first points of the game on a short interception return for a touchdown, when Jay Cutler missed Matt Forte on a flat route.
You think maybe Cutler got a little peeved from that?
Cutler was golden the remainder of the day, throwing for a pair of touchdowns and over three hundred yards. Brandon Marshall chipped in a hundred-yard receiving game in his own Bears debut and Michael Bush added a pair of rushing touchdowns himself in his own Bears debut, as the Bears put the pedal to the metal, storming their way to a 41-21 victory over Andrew Luck and the Colts.
Luck threw three interceptions, including two brilliant picks by Tim Jennings and a third tipped by Jennings to Chris Conte, and one touchdown in the fourth quarter on a slant to Donnie Avery en route to a 52.9 passer rating.
