Cowboys won't fire Jason Garrett during season
Dallas Coeboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones will allow Jason Garrett to finish the season as the team's head coach. That is the plan even though Jones has been publicly critical of Garrett and the coaching staff since the team's 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Sunday. That is unusual for Jones, who has been Garrett's most ardent supporter throughout his career. Garrett is in the final year of his contract. Jones told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas before Thursday's 26-15 loss to the Bills that he hoped his criticism would inspire the team.

The Cowboys failed to score a touchdown on offense, created no turnovers on defense and allowed a blocked punt that set up the game's only touchdown. Despite Thursday's loss, Dallas is still assured of being no worse than tied for the NFC East lead heading into Week 14 regardless of what happens in the Eagles game against Miami on Sunday. The Cowboys are now 6-6 and have yet to defeat any opponent with a winning record. Garrett's team is 0-4 in games decided by four or fewer points.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he's sticking with Jason Garrett
For better or worse, Jerry Jones is sticking with coach Jason Garrett, as the Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager continues to believe better days are coming in the final month of the season, even after Thursday's dismal 26-15 loss to the Buffalo Bills. "This is not the time for me [to make a coaching change]," Jones said outside the locker room with tears in his eyes. "I'm looking ahead at another ballgame. I'm looking ahead at winning four or five straight and helping write a story they will talk about, how it looks like you're down and out. And I mean that. That's the way that I'm operating. Every decision that I make over the next month will be with an eye in mind to get us in the Super Bowl now.

Despite losing for the sixth time in nine games, the Cowboys (6-6) will remain in first place in the NFC East regardless of how the Philadelphia Eagles fare Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Garrett's future has been a topic since the season began, and speculation intensified this week after Jones' critical comments following last weekend's 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots, which the owner called a "significant setback." The next challenge is next Thursday at the Chicago Bears (6-6). Garrett entered the season without a contract for 2020 and knowing he would have to win to secure a second extension from Jones. The Cowboys went down a similar path in 2014 after Garrett had three consecutive 8-8 finishes, then went 12-4 and won the division and a playoff game.

Potentially affecting Jones' decision to keep Garrett is where he would look for a successor. The defense, under passing game coordinator Kris Richard and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, gave up points on five of six possessions Thursday and has gone four straight games without generating a turnover. Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has been on the job for only 12 games, and the offense has not been effective in the past five days, scoring only 24 points.



Cowboys left guard Connor Williams' season ends with torn ACL

Just as the Dallas Cowboys received good news regarding the health of wide receiver Amari Cooper's left knee following Thursday's loss to the Buffalo Bills, the team lost left guard Connor Williams to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Williams left the game in the second quarter after an Ezekiel Elliott run, but returned for the opening series of the third quarter only to be pulled after a false start. An MRI confirmed the tear. Williams did not play Nov. 17 against the Detroit Lions after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, but he returned to play Nov. 24 against New England.

Cooper suffered an injury in the fourth quarter when he took a helmet to his left leg after making a catch. He was able to return to the game and further tests showed no structural damage, Cooper has played through heel, ankle and quadriceps injuries throughout the season but has not missed a game.

Week 14 NFL Power Rankings: 1-32 poll, plus who's under fire in the final month
The NFL Power Rankings looked at players, coaches and executives on the not seat in the preseason. Now that we're in the home stretch of the regular season, we figured we'd revisit this subject and see who was under fire going into the final month.

No.13: Dallas
Who's under fire: Jason Garrett, head coach/Jerry Jones, owner.

Garrett has to be at the top of the list. He entered the season in a win-or-else situation because he was in the final year of his deal. Jones is responsible for the coaches and players on the roster he is also under fire, but since he owns the team, he isn't going anywhere.
