Keeping the Fan Faith Alive
Correct, but it could also be two players playing the same position, evaluating which one has a better performance. For instance, in baseball you say the "pitching match-up," but pitchers do not face each other. In basketball you can point out two star players that will "face off" but do not necessarily defend each other. I just translated that onto football - focusing on which player will have the better game.
