The Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams are headed in completely different directions right now, but don't tell that to the owner of America's Team.
Jerry Jones' Cowboys are off to a frustrating 1-2 start, due in large part to awful play from quarterback Dak Prescott - who's just two years removed from an Offensive Rookie of the Year award-winning season.
The and red hot Rams, who are off to a 4-0 start - thanks to an offensive juggernaut that's scored 35 points per game. In comparison, the Cowboys rank 30th in scoring offense with 13.7 points per game. The Rams have averaged 468.5 yards per contest, while the Cowboys have averaged 277.7.
Despite the major differences between both teams thus far, Jones explained on 105.3 The Fan (h/t Herbie Teope of NFL.com), why he sees similarities between the Cowboys and Rams.
"Well, I like our offensive line when it stacks up against the Rams or, to be specific, since we're comparing the Rams, but I like our offensive line," Jones said. "I think it's fair to say we've got good running backs."
Jones is right here, as the Cowboys have owned one of the league's most dominant offensive lines over the last five years. But Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick has been sidelined as he deals with a neurological disorder, while Tyron Smith has been hampered by a hamstring injury.
Running back Ezekiel Elliott won the rushing title in his rookie 2016 season, but his 2017 campaign was cut short due to a six-game suspension. He has 274 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns through the first three games.
As for the quarterbacks? Jones also sees similarities between Prescott and Rams QB Jared Goff.
"The quarterback -- I remember Goff when he first came in, they moved him along at a little slower pace than Dak got to come in -- but I know that we've been just as proud of Dak as those that are Rams fans that are proud of their quarterback," Jones said.
"We've done that and had that feeling in the past. So when I see them executing in a way that creates the offense they got, I look at our personnel -- I don't have to reach to basically see that."
The Cowboys host the identical 1-2 Detroit Lions in a pivotal Week 4 contest. The losing team will be dealt a major blow to their playoff hopes, so it's up to Jones' team to find its groove and start winning games again.
