The game of pro football is predicated on individual matchups. Coaches seek out a matchup in their favor and devise a game plan to take advantage. Each week we preview one lopsided matchup that should make an impact on the game, either through its exploitation or in changing a team's plans to try to compensate. While every team at this point of the season has been hit by injuries, several teams have a cluster of players at the same position visiting the trainer's room. That has created some big mismatches in this week's games.
