The Dallas Cowboys lost in the final minutes to the Philadelphia Eagles and missed the playoffs after a third straight 8-8 record, but Jerry Jones reiterated after the Cowboys 24-22 loss that he is committed to head coach Jason Garrett.

Garrett has been one of the most popular whipping boys around the NFL, along with his quarterback Tony Romo and his boss Jerry Jones, but despite being .500 for three years running, a change at head coach does not appear likely.
If Jones is true to his word and Garrett is indeed retained, a change on the defensive side of the ball could be made as Monte Kiffin’s first year in Dallas was a nightmare.
The Cowboys entered Sunday night’s game with the 31st ranked pass defense, 27th rush defense and the 26th scoring defense, allowing 27.2 points per game.
For the fourth consecutive the Cowboys will be at home watching the playoffs and have just one playoff victory since the 1996 postseason.
