The Chicago Bears’ Week 4 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts presents some shocking numbers.

That word pretty much sums up the Chicago Bears season so far, though: Shocking. In some fashion, each and every game through three weeks has been a shocking victory. Three games and three anxiety attacks is the best way to describe this season for most fans.

But, the outcome has been three victories nonetheless. With Matt Nagy making the switch to veteran Nick Foles, this team seemed to rise up and flip the switch on Atlanta. It was just a matter of Foles getting comfortable over his first few snaps before he and the offense turned the tables on the Falcons.

This coming Sunday, the Bears face off against the 2-1 Indianapolis Colts. With a new face under center in Philip Rivers, Indianapolis went into this year thinking about a Super Bowl run. So far, things haven’t gone as smooth as they would like to see, particularly from Rivers.

But, it’s early — early for both teams. Things could change drastically over the next few weeks for either team. Just as the first three games had the chance to go much different based on a handful of plays for Chicago, the next few games could have similar outcomes for either team.

Without a preseason this year, it’s tough to know exactly what to expect from any team through just three games. However, the numbers do speak for themselves. It may be a three game sample size, but for Chicago and Indianapolis there are some eye-popping numbers to keep an eye on going into their matchup.

Whether it’s going further into the Bears’ pass defense or how the Colts have been riding rookie running back Jonathan Taylor, this matchup presents some intriguing details.
