Bears Vs. Broncos: Jay Cutler May Use Bootleg Action In Opener Vs. Broncos On Thursday

As the Chicago Bears finally open their 2012 preseason slate of games on Thursday night against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, everyone will be watching Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall on the first few offensive series. Matt Bowen thinks the Bears will be working hard to incorporate some play action bootleg plays into the offense this season, so he has provided an in-depth breakdown of how Chicago will attack opposing defenses and why viewers might get an exciting early look at the Cutler-to-Marshall connection on Thursday:

The detailed strategic breakdowns from Bowen are always great to watch, so hopefully they take his advice and use Cutler's athletic ability outside the pocket and on the move far more often than Mike Martz did last season. If so, this could be a very exciting offensive unit to watch during the upcoming season.

Here is the game time and TV information for the preseason opener against the Broncos on Thursday:

Game time: 7:30 PM

Location: Solider Field; Chicago, Illinois

TV: CBN/WFLD
