Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is sure to have many more better games than the one he put up against the Chicago Bears on Monday, where he threw for 309 yards but was also responsible for four turnovers. Luck will certainly pick apart his own performance, but he was also facing one of the best veteran defenses in the NFL. Luck recognized that after the game on Sunday, lauding Chicago's defense.
"I think it kicked up another notch. Especially against a defense with guys like Lance Briggs, Julius Peppers, Henry Melton, Brian Urlacher, there's a lot of speed out there and they're a fast team. But there was definitely a noticeable difference," Luck said.

The Bears' defense has been the backbone of the franchise in the Lovie Smith era, and if it can carry its weight in 2012, it could make for a lethal combination with an offense that looks to be the best that Chicago has seen in some time.
