Colts Lose Season Opener At The Oil Can
Playing in a brand new $700 million Lucas Oil Stadium wasn't enough to enable the Indianapolis Colts to win their first regular season game. The Chicago Bears pay back the Colts for their 2007 Super Bowl loss to the Colts, winning 29-13. This is a stunning setback for the Colts team, which has been plagued by player injuries. Manning started in the QB position despite his absence during the pre-season due to knee surgery. The past three seasons have seen nothing but wins for the Colts during the months of September and October. Hopefully, this doesn't portend a losing season in the new stadium.
