Vito Stellino's picks

January 12, 1991

There's one good thing that can be said about the two made-for-television playoff games the NFL added to the schedule last week: They were easy to pick.

LTC The victories by the Bears and Bengals turned what would have been a 1-1 playoff record into a 3-1 record.

I'll take it.

This weekend, it gets a lot tougher except for the Miami-Buffalo game. A warm weather team in Buffalo in January? Forget it.

Bills (-6 1/2 ) 21, Dolphins 7 -- I've never been able to figure out why a glove company picks a quarterback from Miami to be its spokesman. When does Dan Marino ever wear gloves? Today, he finally gets the chance.

49ers (-8) 24, Redskins 20 -- This is a chance to watch Joe Montana in the playoffs one more time. It's the football equivalent of seeing Picasso pick up the paint brush.

Last week's record: 3-1; against the spread: 3-1.

Playoff record: 3-1; against the spread: 3-1.

Regular-season record: 140-84; against the spread: 102-119-3. Best bets: 33-35.
