The Chicago Bears open the 2012 season at home against top-overall pick Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

The Chicago Bears will get the first regular-season look at Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck when the two teams face off face off Sunday at Soldier Field.

Jay Cutler and his new-look wide receiver corps will look to start fast against the Colts. Brandon Marshall in particular should have fond memories of his 21-catch performance against Indianapolis in 2009. Running back Matt Forte had a feeble preseason, averaging just 2.4 yards on 13 carries, but is coming off a career-best 2011 campaign in which he totaled 1,487 yards from scrimmage.

On defense, the Bears will look to harass Luck in his first NFL start and force the top-overall pick into mistakes. Linebacker Brian Urlacher is expected to play as he continues his recovery from an Aug. 14 arthroscopic knee surgery. Urlacher practiced Wednesday and Friday.

CBS will have full coverage of the game beginning at 12 p.m. CT.
