— At the end of the third quarter, the Colts trail the Bears, 20-17.


— The Bears get on the board. Quarterback Chad Kelly finds tight end Hale Hentges at the Chicago 9-yard line, but as he's being brought down while finishing the catch the ball pops out and into the hands of defensive back Deon Bush, who returns it 91 yards to the house. Officially it's an interception return for a touchdown for the Bears, who cut the Colts' lead to 10-7 with 9:32 left in the second quarter.

— Chad Kelly finds Deon Cain for the sensational 46-yard touchdown, and the Colts extend their lead over the Bears to 17-7 with 3:52 left in the second quarter. Cain caught the ball around the Chicago 30-yard line, headed one way — taking two Bears defenders with him — and spun back the other way on a dime to sprint to the end zone for his first-career score. Nine-play, 75-yard drive that took 5:21 off the clock.

— Nice defensive stand here for the Colts, as Ben Banogu nearly breaks through for the sack on 3rd and Goal from the Indy 3-yard line. Chase Daniel tried to make an acrobatic last-second toss nearby to running back Ryan Nall, which fell incomplete. Eddy Pineiro knocks in a 21-yard field goal, and the Colts now lead the Bears 17-10 at the 1:16 mark of the second quarter.

— At halftime, the Colts lead the Bears, 17-10.


— The Bears win the opening toss and elect to defer to the second half. Upon receiving the opening kickoff, the Colts quickly get to work. Chad Kelly, getting the start at quarterback tonight for Indy, immediately finds tight end Mo Alie-Cox wide open for a 36-yard pass play on the first play from scrimmage, getting to the Chicago 39. Four plays later, Adam Vinatieri, making his 2019 preseason debut after dealing with a minor knee injury, nails a 49-yard field goal to put the Colts up 3-0 with 12:47 left in the first quarter.

— After a few stalled drives from both teams, the Colts face a 3rd and 6 from the Chicago 45-yard line when Kelly finds wide receiver Zach Pascal in a tight window across the middle. Pascal hangs on to make a tough grab and is slammed to the ground by the Bears' Deon Bush, who is flagged for a personal foul, getting Indy to the Chicago 17. Two plays later, newly-acquired running back Charcandrick West, who originally took the handoff and headed inside, changed course and sprinted to his right and easily got into the end zone from 10 yards out. The seven-play, 85-yard drive results in the Colts taking a 10-0 lead over the Bears with 1:52 left in the first quarter.
