Indianapolis backup quarterback Sam Ehlinger guided the host Colts to the final 17 points of the game, all in the fourth quarter, to rally past the Chicago Bears 24-17 on Saturday night in an NFL preseason game.
Indianapolis went with Gardner Minshew, who was 13-of-15 passing for 107 yards and a second-quarter touchdown pass of 4 yards to Juwann Winfree.
Ehlinger was 9-for-14 for 124 yards. He also was the Colts' leading rusher, with eight carries for 60 yards, including a 5-yard TD run in the fourth quarter to pull Indianapolis within 17-13 after a failed conversion pass.
But the Colts scored again on Jake Funk's 4-yard TD run and his 2-point conversion run for a 21-17 advantage with 4:28 left. Matt Gay added a 35-yard field goal with 1:10 remaining in the game for the final difference.
Chicago's Daurice Fountain recorded game highs with five receptions for 86 yards, including a 35-yard TD from Nathan Peterman early in the fourth quarter.
