Brandt: Week 1 matchups to watch

Houston CB Fred Bennett vs. Pittsburgh WR Santonio Holmes

Holmes had a coming-out last year as a sophomore in the NFL with 52 receptions. 942 yards and 8 TDs. Look for him to break out with an even bigger year in '08. Holmes has the speed to get deep and will catch crossing patterns across the middle. Bennett, meanwhile, is a second-year player for the Texans with good size and speed. He lacks experience, though, and it would help him greatly in this matchup if the Texans can get a big pass rush against QB Ben Roethlisberger. Houston had only 11 INTs all of last season -- but Bennett led the team with three
