Bears' D scores twice in win over Colts


EditorsNote: Corrects to Pineiro making five kicks in lead

Chicago's defense scored two touchdowns, and kicker Eddy Pineiro made all five of his kicks as the visiting Bears beat the Indianapolis Colts 27-17 on Saturday night in preseason action.

Deon Bush intercepted Chad Kelly in the second quarter and returned it 91 yards for the score. Joel Iyiegbuniwe followed suit late in the third quarter, scooping and scoring from 22 yards after James Vaughters strip-sacked Colts quarterback Phillip Walker. Pineiro hit field goals of 21 and 58 yards.

Both teams sat their starters, including the Colts holding out quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who is now the starter after news broke during the game that Andrew Luck is retiring. Kelly started and went 16 of 21 for 209 yards, a touchdown and the pick to Bush. Deon Cain, a 2018 sixth-round pick, caught three passes for 74 yards, including a 46-yard touchdown.

Bears backup Chase Daniel started for Mitchell Trubisky and finished 3 of 9 for 21 yards. Tyler Bray entered next and went 11 of 16 for 136 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
