Formerly an offensive juggernaut, the Lions (1-4) were blanked by the New England Patriots before enjoying some rest during their Week 6 bye. Through five weeks, Jared Goff & Co. had the NFL’s No. 1 scoring offense. Detroit’s defense, on the other hand, ranks dead last, allowing 34 points per game.
QB Dak Prescott makes his much-anticipated return for the Cowboys (4-2) after missing five weeks with a thumb injury. Dallas will need him after backup Cooper Rush finally sputtered in a Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. With the league’s No. 3 scoring defense and Dak returning to the lineup in front of a home crowd, Sunday looks like a potential get-right game for America’s Team.
