Justin Fields threw two touchdown passes on Chicago's first two drives, and the Bears defeated Tennessee 23-17 in Week 1. Three backups then took over and Nathan Peterman, Tyson Bagent and PJ Walker combined for 12 of 19 for 108 yards with no TDs and one interception. Matt Eberflus won and covered all three preseason games in his first year as coach of the Bears and two of three went UNDER. Shane Steichen is in his first year as coach of Indianapolis and the Colts lost 23-19 to Buffalo last week and heralded rookie Anthony Richardson went 7-for-12 for 67 yards, but none of the three QBs who played threw a TD pass and Gardner Minshew and Sam Ehlinger combined for 14 of 15 for 144 yards. Chicago is 8-2-1 ATS its past 11 preseason road games and the Colts are 2-10-2 ATS their past 14 home games in preseason. Richardson already has been named the starting QB for the Colts this season, but he still has a lot to learn and Chicago's defense dominated the Titans. Take the Bears and the UNDER.
