The game of pro football is predicated on individual match-ups. Coaches seek out a match-up in their favor and devise a game plan to take advantage. Each week we preview one lopsided match-up that should make an impact on the game, either through its exploitation or in changing a team's plans to try to compensate. This week is a good rivalry weekend with plenty of games featuring divisional match-ups, or former division mates for the Colts/Dolphins game. The Giants and Jets battle over the home turf while the Sunday night Packers vs. Vikings game promises to be the highest scoring.
