CHICAGO, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Jay Cutler amassed 333 yards and two scores Sunday, powering the Chicago Bears to a 41-21 spanking of Indianapolis in the debut of Colts rookie Andrew Luck.

Cutler went 21-of-35 through the air, with favorite target Brandon Marshall hauling down nine catches for 119 yards and a score.

Matt Forte found the end zone once en route to 80 rushing yards while Michael Bush added a pair of short scoring plunges for Chicago (1-0).

Luck, the top overall pick in April's NFL Draft, was inconsistent in his first game for Indianapolis (0-1) as the Colts fell in their initial contest under new head Coach Chuck Pagano.

The former Stanford standout went 23-for-45 with a touchdown, three interceptions and a fumble.
