Jason Garrett's job is safe for the time being.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said his team would have "zero chance" of making a Super Bowl push if he fires head coach Jason Garrett this season, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.
"I'm not going to make a coaching change," said Jones with tears in his eyes following Dallas' 26-15 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic.
Thursday's loss was the Cowboys' third defeat in their last four games, dropping the NFC East leaders to 6-6. Dallas sits just ahead of the 5-6 Philadelphia Eagles, who play the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
The Cowboys and Eagles face off in Week 16 in what could be a division-deciding game.
Despite their recent slump, Jones still believes the Cowboys can get hot over the last four games of the year.
"I've made a lot riskier bets," he said, according to Jori Epstein of USA Today.
Garrett is in the midst of a contract year. Prior to Thursday's game, it was reported the longtime head coach would need to make a deep playoff run to keep his job, though the team has no intention of firing him during the season.
On Wednesday, Jones continued to pile the pressure on Garrett, saying "in this business, you've got to come in first."
Dallas faces the Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Rams over the next two weeks before the potentially pivotal matchup with Philadelphia.
