Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall weren’t about to let Andrew Luck upstage them in their first game back together. Cutler threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns, Marshall added 119 yards receiving with a TD, and the Chicago Bears spoiled Luck’s debut, beating the Indianapolis Colts 41-21 Sunday in the season opener.
Though he practiced fully on Friday, there is still no determination on punter Adam Podlesh’s playing status for Sunday’s season opener against the Colts.

Football fans, rejoice, the NFL is back! Week 1 features a few intriguing divisional matchups, as well as a heavyweight bout between two elite NFC teams. Here’s my take on how all of this weekend’s action will shake out.
With the Bears season-opener less than three days away, linebacker Brian Urlacher isn’t yet in game shape.
When the Bears traded for Brandon Marshall, it opened up a whole new world of offensive football.
New Bears general manager Phil Emery spent the offseason getting Jay Cutler more weapons. Now that he has them, it’s up to the rest of the league to stop them.
Brian Urlacher was again on the practice field Wednesday, but the more important development may have been the sighting of Adam Podlesh who was punting.
Since 1998, three NFL franchises have had the top overall pick twice: Cleveland, Houston, and Indianapolis.
Throughout the entire preseason, Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher has maintained the stance that he’ll play in the season-opener.
There are several teams this season that have a legitimate chance to overcome poor finishes in recent seasons and become legitimate NFL surprises.
Football is back, and not a moment too soon. Here are the five must-watch match-ups for the upcoming 2012 NFL season.
It’s possible that Urlacher will be ready to go in 25 days. He’s a tough guy, fast healer and committed to the rehab process, but it might be better to hold him back.
Rookie quarterbacks have been on notice for years.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded tight end Kellen Winslow to the Seattle Seahawks for a draft pick on Monday night and signed former Colts star Dallas Clark to replace him.
General manager Ryan Grigson decided there was no reason to delay the inevitable: Luck will become the successor to Peyton Manning as Indianapolis’ quarterback and the new face of the franchise.
A person with direct knowledge of the situation says the Indianapolis Colts are taking Stanford quarterback Andrew with the No. 1 pick in next week’s NFL draft.
In an effort to boost the team’s cornerback depth, the Bears signed Kelvin Hayden to a one-year contract Thursday.
