Patricia, Wilks endure tough first seasons as head coaches

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Two first-year head coaches will be on the sidelines when the Detroit Lions meet the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and both have had a rough season.

"Yeah, your first year you're going to have struggles," Detroit defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois said. "If you don't, you lucked up."

Most of the luck for these teams has been bad.
