Week 4 Recap: Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears

Advertisement

The defense was the key to Indianapolis getting a win on Sunday against Chicago. Philip Rivers only had to throw one touchdown to Mo Alie-Cox, and from then on, the Colts defense did everything they could to get the win by a score of 19-11.

The Colts top-ranked defense didn’t surrender the touchdown until Allen Robinson caught a Nick Foles pass for a 16-yard score with 1:35 left in the game. Offensively, Rivers only threw 29 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown. The trio of Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, and Jordan Wilkins combined for 35 carries, which resulted in 107 yards. Zach Pascal tied T.Y. Hilton‘s catch total as they both caught three passes for a combined 87 yards. Justin Houston recorded the lone sack while rookie safety, Julian Blackmon had the interception off of Foles as he was filling in for the injured Malik Hooker. Rodrigo Blankenship hit on all four of his field goals. Indianapolis played the second half without Darius Leonard. His injury will be examined in the coming days.

Foles was 26-42 for 249 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. The rushing attack was nowhere to be found for the Bears as they only compiled 28 yards on 16 carries. Robinson has caught fire with Foles, and he caught seven passes for 101 yards and the score. Chicago has found a reliable option in Darnell Mooney. The rookie receiver caught five passes for 52 yards. Brent Urban recorded the only sack for Chicago. The Bears were flagged eight times for 103 yards as well.

This game went about as expected. Chicago’s offense couldn’t muster anything against the league’s top offense. The Bears don’t look much different between Foles and Mitchell Trubisky, and the running game was lackluster. Chicago needs to figure things out quickly before their Thursday night game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Colts will look to continue their winning streak against the 3-1 Cleveland Browns.
