Let’s dispense with the small talk.

Now, for this week’s picks . . .

* LIONS 24, PITTSBURGH 10: Yes, the Lions finally win. I vote that Mayor Young gives us the whole week off to celebrate the occasion.
* CLEVELAND 20, DENVER 17: Elway! Kosar! Tora! Tora! Tora!
* MIAMI 38, HOUSTON 34: The House of Pain? I thought that was my chiropractor’s office.
* BUFFALO 28, NEW ENGLAND 16: Well, the Patriots have done it again. They’ve opened the shoe box and let Doug Flutie out.
* WASHINGTON 20, NEW ORLEANS 19: Wait a minute. Wasn’t New Orleans supposed to be good?
* MINNESOTA 29, TAMPA BAY 21: Wait a minute. Wasn’t Tampa Bay supposed to be lousy?

* GREEN BAY 17, ATLANTA 3: Who cares?
