PFF ReFocused, NFL Preseason Week 3: Chicago Bears 27, Indianapolis Colts 17

It was a game to forget for the Indianapolis Colts, and in more ways than one, as the 27-17 preseason loss to the Chicago Bears was almost entirely overshadowed by the news of Andrew Luck‘s shock retirement.

PFF's ReFocused series features immediate takeaways from the two analysts who graded the game live. The two offer a detailed breakdown of the game's most notable performances before the grades and advanced stats are reviewed and finalized by Senior Analysts.

All of PFF's grades and advanced stats from this game and the other games played this week will be finalized and made available to ELITE subscribers within 24 hours of the final whistle. ELITE subscribers can view player grades, advanced statistics, positional snap counts and more in Premium Stats.

PFF's ELITE subscribers can also preview NFL and NCAA games in PFF Greenline, an online dashboard with projections for the spread, totals and moneyline.

Final Score

Chicago Bears 27, Indianapolis Colts 17

Chicago Bears

T.J. Clemmings really struggled in pass protection on the night. Before getting injured he surrendered multiple pressures, allowing Chase Daniel almost no time in the pocket.

Tyler Bray had a solid night despite the interception. He made a number of tight-window throws and allowed his receivers to make some plays.

Rookie Takeaways

Tight end Jesper Horsted had a productive night on limited snaps and caught all three of his targets for 39 yards, one touchdown and one additional first down.

Indianapolis Colts

On a night when all eyes quickly darted to the quarterback situation, signal-caller Chad Kelly had a relative efficient night as a passer, completing 16 of his 21 attempts for 209 yards and a score.

Al-Quadin Muhammad was nearly unstoppable out of the gates and generated multiple pressures in the first quarter. 

Rookie Takeaways

Rookie Ben Banogu was everywhere for the Colts' defense tonight. He really shined as a pass-rusher; he created multiple pressures and caused havoc in the backfield.
