The vibes are vastly different for a pair of 1-2 teams trying to put rough starts behind them.The Detroit Lions just secured their first win under new coach Matt Patricia Quandre Diggs Jersey , against longtime boss Bill Belichick and New England, in prime time no less.The Dallas Cowboys can’t fix a dysfunctional passing game even with the first 100-yard rushing performance of the season for star running back Ezekiel Elliott in a loss to Seattle.The vibes won’t matter to Patricia on Sunday when he goes after his first road win, just three weeks removed from a jolting 48-17 loss to the New York Jets at home in his debut.“They’re all one-week seasons,” the former Patriots defensive coordinator said. “I would say the good thing about where we’re at right now is we’re starting to get into a little bit more season mode coming out of training camp, getting kind of into a little bit of a schedule rhythm.”The Cowboys can’t find anything remotely resembling a rhythm with quarterback Dak Prescott and a new group of receivers trying to replace Jason Witten and Dez Bryant. Three Detroit receivers 鈥?Golden Tate, Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones 鈥?have nearly 200 more yards receiving (690) than the entire Dallas offense (498).Prescott is averaging 166 yards passing with a QB rating (74.9) exactly 30 points lower than his NFL rookie record when he was the league’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016.“This is about everything we’re doing offensively,” coach Jason Garrett said. “We have to coach better. We got to play better. We got to run it better. We got to throw it better. We got to protect better. We have to do all the things that good offenses do.”Actually, the Cowboys figured out the running part with Elliott’s 127 yards on 16 carries in a 24-13 loss to the Seahawks. But he had two crucial errors, stepping out of bounds before catching what would have been a tying touchdown pass in the first half, and fumbling when the offense was finally on track in the fourth quarter.“We can’t have our defense on the field the majority of those first halves,” said Elliott, who is tied with San Francisco’s Matt Breida for the NFL rushing lead at 274 yards. “We’ve got to come out there, get a fast start, execute, get some momentum and carry that through the game.”Things to consider in the first meeting between the teams since a 42-21 Dallas victory late in the 2016 season when Prescott and Elliott were the dazzling rookie duo leading the Cowboys to an NFC-best 13 wins:ANOTHER STAFFORD HOMECOMINGLions quarterback Matthew Stafford is set for his fourth appearance at the home of the Cowboys, just a few miles from his Dallas high school. Stafford won his hometown debut in 2011 T.J. Hockenson Detroit Lions Jersey , rallying the Lions from 13 points down in the fourth quarter for a 34-30 win. He’s lost two straight since, including one of the blemishes on his 0-3 playoff record. The Cowboys won a wild-card game during the 2014 season on Tony Romo’s late touchdown pass.ROOKIE MILESTONELeighton Vander Esch, the Cowboys’ first-round pick in April, is set for his first career start with Sean Lee sidelined by another hamstring injury. Lee was injured in Seattle, and Vander Esch tied for the team lead with a career-high 10 tackles. “There’s a reason they drafted me in the first round, and I gotta live up to that,” Vander Esch said.KERRYON WAYWARD SONRookie Kerryon Johnson had the Lions’ first 100-yard rushing game in nearly five years in the 26-10 win over the Patriots. While the Cowboys have the NFL’s No. 3 overall defense, they’ve been more vulnerable against the run. Detroit’s previous 100-yard game was by Reggie Bush (117) in a 40-10 win over Green Bay on Thanksgiving in 2013. “It’s been a while,” said Johnson, who had 101 yards on 16 carries. “But I feel like as a group, as an offense, as a team, that’s what’s expected of us. That’s doing our job.”RECEIVER CAROUSELThe Cowboys carried seven receivers last week, with six active against Seattle. Brice Butler could play after being inactive last week, days after rejoining his team from the previous three seasons. Butler signed with Arizona in free agency but was cut at the end of the preseason. If Butler is active, there’s a chance Terrance Williams will be a healthy scratch for the first time in his six-year career. Williams has played just 22 percent of the snaps so far.ANSAH WATCHDetroit defensive end Ziggy Ansah T.J. Hockenson Jersey 2019 , playing on the franchise tag this season, was ruled out on Friday. Ansah has not played since injuring a shoulder in the season-opening loss against the Jets. “He’s working extremely hard and he’s doing everything we’re asking him to do,” Patricia said before Ansah was ruled out. “I have the utmost respect for his work ethic and what he’s trying to do to help us.”___ His football career hasn’t gone as smoothly as his father’s or brother’s, but Berkley Edwards is not giving up his football dream.According to Dave Birkett of the , Michigan running back Berkley Edwards is trying out for the Lions as a wide receiver at their local Pro Day.Berkley played mostly running back and special teams in stops at Minnesota and Central Michigan, before heading to Ann Arbor as a graduate transfer. His father Stan and brother Braylon starred there before their NFL careers, but Berkley faces a longer path. Convincing his father took time, and game tape of his receiver workouts.“I wanted him to get on with his life and leave football alone,” Stan Edwards said. “And he said, ‘Dad, I still think I can play at the next level.’ I’m like, ‘OK,’ and then when he showed me, I’m like, ‘You know what, you’re right.’“Nothing’s a guarantee Color Rush T.J. Hockenson Jersey , but the amount of time and work he put in, he has improved drastically where when some folks are seeing them [films] they’re saying, ‘Well, what round do you think he’s going to get drafted in?’ I don’t know that he’s going to get drafted, but it’s interesting that you say that based on what you see today.”Berkley spent most of his life playing running back, but thinks he can show pro scouts he belongs as a slot receiver.“For me, starting out [playing receiver] wasn’t really natural for me at all,” he said. “I just kind of worked at it so much that I’ve gotten to the point where I was able to go against some of the top DBs in the country that I’ve gotten to play against, either at Minnesota, at Central or at Michigan, and been able to have success with them playing against them in practice. And now it’s to the point now where I know I can be a slot receiver as well as a special teams player and a running back, too, so just a versatile player.”Edwards ran his 40-yard dashes in the low-4.3-second range at Michigan’s Pro Day, which will get him noticed as much as his family connections.
