    In week 7 we have a battle of two teams who are very familiar with each other, Coach Zo's Chicago Bears and Coach Musics Indy Colts. Both teams have so far had a successful campaign. The Bears(4-2) have dropped 2 in as many weeks and will be hungary to get back in the win column. The Colts(4-1) on the other hand are coming off there BYE week and have won there last 4 in a row.

    These teams are similiar in many ways, which makes this game a tough one to predict. Each team likes to pound the rock and play aggresive Defense. The Colts come into the week with the highest scoring Offense(36.0), regardless of there overall stats. Colts use an array of WR's with there passing attack. TY Hilton (10 rec, 222yds, 3 tds) is the main threat too look out for. Its the Defense thats wreaked havoc over the past few weeks forcing 16 TO's which is 4th in the league and accumulating 17 sacks which is also 4th in the league. Colts Defense is lead by FS Antoine Bethea (22 tackles, 1 int), CB Vontae Davis (12 tackles, 4 ints, 1 sack) and LE Lamarr Houston (9 tackles, 6 sacks.

    The Bears came out of the gates hot this year winning there first 4. But the last 2 weeks they've hit some bumps in the road. With a team short of two of there starting WR's you cant count them out. They have a very balanced Offense lead by Matt Forte with 789yds on the ground and 10tds. Might I add, there also putting up 31.0 pts a game. The Bears also bring in a tough Defense lead by MLB Pat Angerer(32 tackles, 3 ints) and "Peanut" Tillman (23 tackles, 3 ints). They've proven to be one the the leagues toughest against the run, ranking 4th in the league holding opponents to under 350yds on the ground in 6 weeks.




    Battle of the QB's:

    Jay Cutler: 1,185 yds, 9 tds, 5 ints and a 99.5 passer rating
    Andrew Luck: 1,089 yds, 11 tds, 6 ints and a 114.3 passer rating
