The Bears are undefeated but starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky has been benched.
Instead, Nick Foles will make his first start of the season, after leading a comeback against the Falcons last week.
Up next, the 2-1 Indianapolis Colts who have the top-ranked defense in the league.
Former Bears player James “Big Cat” Williams shares his three keys for the Bears against the Colts.
Big Cat Take #1
The Bears defensively have to shore up their run defense. The Bears defense in the last three games has given up 138 yards to the Lions, 75 yards to the Giants and 144 yards to Atlanta. Not horrible numbers but they will need to be better to come out of this weekend 4-0.
Big Cat Take #2
Nick Foles in his first start as a Bear needs to expand on what he did in the second half against Atlanta. Foles will get the starting reps this week and will have the ability to communicate during practice to the receivers, tight ends and backs what he’s seeing and how he’s going to want to make adjustments to the different things they could get from the Colts defensively.
Big Cat Take #3
Coach Nagy needs to continue calling run plays for David Montgomery, who is averaging around 4.5 yards a carry. It looked like the Bears benefited from putting Mitch Trubisky under center to run the ball, but with Foles in at quarterback they could go back to their old ways of running more out of shotgun. Let’s hope not.
Prediction: Bears 27-24
