by Tim Heaney on September 11, 2009 @ 21:00:00 PDT


You don't need to analyze the matchups for the stud players most of the time. Instead, I'm focusing on the midrange showdowns that should catch your attention.

Key Matchup
Matthew Stafford, QB, DET vs. New Orleans Saints secondary Rook's 1st test comes vs. improved NO DB corps, incl. Greer and Sharper
Santana Moss, WR, WAS vs. Terrell Thomas, CB, NYG A. Ross out for Week 1; backup Thomas should struggle vs. Moss
Roy Williams, WR, DAL vs. Ronde Barber, CB, TB Will new bump-and-run scheme cause Ronde to falter, Roy to shine?
Zach Miller, TE, OAK vs. San Diego Chargers LBs SD ranked dead last or near basement in most stats vs. TEs last year
Indianapolis Colts DEs vs. JAC Ts Eben Britton and Eugene Monroe JAC starting 2 Rk OTs - enjoy, Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis
