The Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts will meet for just the second time since Superbowl XLI.

The Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts open the 2012 NFL season on Sunday at Soldier Field with both teams featuring vastly different looks than most football fans will remember.

For the Colts, Sunday's opener will be the first time in 15 years that Peyton Manning won't be starting under center as the reigns have been passed to rookie quarterback, Andrew Luck. For the Bears, the team will finally have two talented wide receivers for Jay Cutler to throw to in Brandon Marshall -- a legitimate No. 1 receiver -- and rookie Alshon Jeffery.

The real question for the Bears will be the health of linebacker Brian Urlacher who will most likely start after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in August, just 26 days before the start of the regular season.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, Sept. 9 at 1 p.m.ET

TV: CBS

Odds: Bears 9.5-to-11 point favorites
