Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

As part of a joint collaboration between SB Nation's Windy City Gridiron and, Comcast's Scott Krinch and WCG's Lester A. Wiltfong Jr. break down all the latest news surrounding the Chicago Bears. Be sure to check back all season long for more video hits and features.

This week Scott and I discuss the Bears' first win and what they did against the Detroit Lions that can be successful this week against the Indianapolis Colts.

We hit on the offensive line, the revamped running game with rookie Jordan Howard toting the rock, the Brian Hoyer vs Jay Cutler debate, Kevin White's injury and how it impacts the offense, the Colts' ability to protect Andrew Luck and more.

Check out the video below and be sure to hit up Comcast SportsNet Chicago for the inside scoop on all of Chicago's professional sports teams, and the local collegiate and high school teams as well.

Here are this weeks Windy City Gridiron predictions for Sunday's game

WCG Pick Score Why
Sam Colts 28-21 The Bears have yet to score more than 17 points this year and while I think the can break that threshold against a bad Colts D, I'm not sold that Hoyer has the ability to really make the big downfield plays or that the Bears can pressure Luck enough to slow down the Colts O.
Ken Bears 28-21 TY Hilton will get deep a couple of times, and Luck will break a couple of scrambles, but Chicago will limit Gore in the run game to reasonable yards. Chicago should be able to run all over this Colts D.
Lester Bears 21-17 The Bears' banged up defense finds a way to harass Andrew Luck and Jordan Howard has another big game.
Jeff Bears 34-27
Jack Bears 15-14 Barth: 0-1 PAT, 3-3 FG
Josh Colts 24-17
EJ Bears 21-20 Captain comeback comes up short, tossing a last-minute pick.
Kev Bears 24-17 Bears win because they can run. Big game for Howard
Steve R. Bears 24-17
Robert Bears 27-24 The Bears pass rush comes alive just enough against an awful offensive line and Jordan Howard continues to pound away at a hapless Indy defense to help eke out the win.

Dane got his prediction in and he's taking the Bears 20 to 18.

What do you guys think happens this Sunday?
