Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in Monday night’s Philadelphia Eagles-Chicago Bears Week 2 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at (-3) Chicago Bears (0-1), 8:30 p.m.
Mike: Bears. Nice little debut for Carson Wentz last week, but that was at home against the Browns. It will be a little different going into Soldier Field and winning in prime time.
Ricky: Bears. The Eagles are thin at cornerback with Leodis McKelvin going down in Week 1. That’s good news for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who shouldn’t spend quite as much time on the ground this week with Chicago’s offensive line not having to deal with Houston’s pass rush.
Andre: Bears. Carson Wentz looked great last week because he was playing the Browns. Now he’s facing a real defense and likely will come back down to Earth. Jay Cutler also will receive a break after facing a stingy Texans defense last week.
