Three ways to beat the Colts
1. Pressure Peyton Manning
Before his second-half comeback against New England, Manning had thrown six interceptions in his first 10 quarters this postseason. If the Bears can hurry him, Manning might make those same poor decisions.
2. Win time of possession
The Colts' offense has become impatient at times after teams put together long, time-consuming drives. The Bears' backfield of Thomas Jones and Cedric Benson will test Indianapolis' rejuvenated run defense.
3. Create a spark on special teams
The Bears' biggest edge is on special teams, where the Colts ranked in the NFL's bottom three in punt and kickoff coverage. Chicago rookie Devin Hester is a special returner who has come up big this season on national TV.
