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 Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears Week 8 game, with the line from OddsShark.

(-5) Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears, Monday, 8:30 p.m.
Mike: Vikings. As long as the Vikings can, you know, score six points, they should be able to win and cover here.
Ricky: Vikings. Jay Cutler is back. Sorry, Chicago.
Andre: Vikings. The league’s best defense in terms of yards allowed per play is also the second-worst offense in terms of yards per play, but Minnesota shouldn’t have a problem forcing turnovers and getting points off turnovers against the Bears, who welcome back Jay Cutler under center.
