The Chicago Bears showed off their explosive offense in today's 41-21 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. It was an interesting afternoon at Soldier Field, with the Colts coming out of the gates firing. Let's take a look at some highlights in today's game, and finish up with the hero and the "zero".On the opening drive, the Bears were rudely introduced to the 2012 NFL season as Jay Cutler was sacked by an all-out rush by the Colts.

He also had an over-the-shoulder, one-handed catch that surely will make all of the highlight reels lat...
