The Indianapolis Colts beat the Chicago Bears 29-17 in Super Bowl XLI, played in a steady rain at Dolphin Stadium in Miami. The game started with a bang for the Bears, as Devin Hester returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, but the Colts were the better team and dominated the rest of the game. The game was historic as Tony Dungy of the Colts, and Lovie Smith of the Bears were the first two African American head coaches in the Super Bowl.
