The Cowboys earning their first victory in their new stadium Sunday would be an important step.

Detroit, loser of a league-record 25 straight road games, takes on a Dallas team that’s the only NFL club yet to win at home.

A loss to the previously winless Buffalo Bills has sparked a new round of discussion about the Detroit Lions’ progress, or lack thereof, under the leadership of general manager Martin Mayhew and coach Jim Schwartz.
