The Chicago Bears are a veteran team with Super Bowl aspirations while the Indianapolis Colts are fresh off a 2-14 season with rookie quarterback Andrew Luck ready to make his first NFL start when the two teams meet in Week 1. Unsurprisingly, NFL experts have sided with the Bears.
The 14-member panel at ESPN.com has unanimously selected the Bears, all nine experts at CBSSports.com think Chicago will earn the victory and the three-man team at Yahoo.com also expects Jay Cutler and the Bears to prevail. In other words, it would be a huge upset if Chicago dropped its Week 1 game against Andrew Luck and company.
