Who doesn't love to watch an irresistible force (Indianapolis' offense) meet an immovable object (Chicago's defense)? And it should be even more interesting watching it unfold in the Colts' sparkling new venue, Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts seem to be able to move the ball at will and to score on anyone, anywhere, anytime. But there's one potential chink in their armor: QB Peyton Manning missed virtually the entire preseason because of knee troubles. The Bears' defense lost some of its luster last year, but if everyone stays healthy, that unit should return to the land of the elite in 2008.
