In a game from Week 5 of the NFL, we will see the teams of Chicago Bears at Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, Indiana.
Brian Hoyer was impressive in the win for the Bears against the Lions but Detroit didn’t really put much of a fight. Hoyer completed nearly 70 percent of his passes and he is looking forward to meeting Colts’ defense, allowing 8 yards per reception. Kevin White will probably be missing for the Bears but this is an opportunity for them to give the ball to the rookie Jordan Howard. The Colts’ offensive line should keep Andrew Luck safe, otherwise, they will have trouble against Chicago. They have the right pieces on offense to win against any team but their defensive backs and offensive line are holding them from anything more than a single playoff appearance.
Luck has been sacked 15 times and hit 32 times but he has kept his cool completing 103 out of 166 passes for 8 touchdowns. Chicago is not fully healthy on defense and although the Bears held the Detroit Lions in check last week, Luck has the weapons to have a huge day. That’s why I predict a win for Colts by 5 or more points as they lost their last game in London against the Jaguars.
