Here are our 670 game predictions.

David Haugh (2-1): Bears 31, Colts 27
Nick Foles makes his first start and the Bears offense will show more efficiency and aggressiveness, scoring touchdowns instead of settling for field goals. The Colts counter with a powerful offensive line and running game, but Philip Rivers will throw an interception that makes the difference in a close, entertaining game. Expect the Bears to finish the first quarter of the season 4-0.

Mike Mulligan (2-1): Bears 23, Colts 21
It remains to be seen how much of a long-term bump the Bears will get with Foles, but in the short term they’re flying high.

Danny Parkins (2-1): Bears 27, Colts 20
The Colts are by far the best team the Bears have played to this point. I think Foles sparks them to their best offensive effort.

Herb Lawrence (2-1): Bears 33, Colts 17
I have to admit, I underestimated the Bears last week, as they had the heart of a champion with another comeback victory. This week, I see the defense getting to Rivers and forcing a bunch of turnovers. The switch to Foles makes this offense instantly better, which makes the team better.
