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 the Chicago Bears-Indianapolis Colts Week 5 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Chicago Bears (1-3) at (-4.5) Indianapolis Colts (1-3), 1 p.m.
Mike: Bears. The Colts have so many problems right now on both sides of the ball. I also wonder how not getting a bye after the London game will affect them.
Ricky: Bears. No, Brian Hoyer isn’t the long-term solution in Chicago. And yes, I know the Bears’ first win of the season last week came against a lowly Lions team. But there’s something to be said for a team rallying behind a newly inserted quarterback. Sorry, Jay Cutler.
Andre: Bears. Somehow the Bears have a top-10 defense (5.1 y/p — 9th) and they’ve done it against solid quarterbacks like Matt Stafford, Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz. Andrew Luck might also end up in a body bag before the end of the season. He’s been sacked 15 times, more than any other quarterback.
