GAME RELEASE: Chicago at Indianapolis

Colts return from London to host the Bears.


The Indianapolis Colts will host the Chicago Bears in Week 5. The game time is set for 1:00 p.m. EST at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The contest will mark the 42nd all-time meeting between the teams in the regular season, with the Colts holding a 22-19 advantage. Indianapolis fell to Chicago, 41-21, in their last matchup on Sept. 9, 2012 at Soldier Field.

Last week, the Colts traveled to London and were defeated by the hosting Jacksonville Jaguars, 30-27, in Indianapolis' first appearance in the International Series.

Jacksonville scored the first points of the game in the first quarter and would not relinquish the lead the entire game.

Down 23-6 entering the final quarter, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (27-of-42 for 234 yards with two touchdowns and one interception) rallied the team to two consecutive touchdown drives of 75 and 78 yards to cut the deficit to 23-20 with 7:06 left.

On the ensuing possession, the Jaguars countered with a touchdown drive to increase their lead to 30-20.

Luck completed a 64-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Phillip Dorsett on the Colts next possession. Those points would be Indianapolis' last of the game.
