Bears' buds hit on combo, deny Luck
CHICAGO — Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall weren't about to let Andrew Luck upstage them. Instead, they played like they'd never been apart.
Cutler threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns, 119 yards and a TD to Marshall, as the Bears spoiled Luck's debut.
Cutler is reunited with Marshall, his old friend from their days with the Broncos.
"We got the guys," Marshall said. "We have the pieces. We have the coaches."
Matt Forte ran for 80 yards and a touchdown to go with 40 yards receiving. Newcomer Michael Bush added two TD runs.
Luck was 23-of-45 for 309 yards with a 4-yard TD to Donnie Avery early in the fourth. But Luck also lost a fumble, got sacked three times and threw three interceptions, two to Tim Jennings.
"There will be a lot of positives, a lot of negatives. We'll try to learn from it," said Luck, the No. 1 overall draft pick this year.
