5. Garrett’s hot seat could heat up as well
Just because the Cowboys found a way to embarrass the Rams doesn’t necessarily mean that Jason Garrett is officially off the hot seat since plenty could change over the next few weeks.
Obviously, if Dallas finds a way to defeat Philadelphia on the road to clinch their third NFC East title in four years, chances are Garrett’s job will be safe for at least another.
But if the Eagles beat the Cowboys, and face a must-win situation the following week against the Giants, Garrett will most likely see that hot seat continue to heat up.
When looking at all of the talent he’s been fortunate enough to work with over the years, it’s easy to understand the frustration in Dallas since the argument can be made that a head coach like Garrett should have been able to get this team to the Super Bowl by now.
Even comments from previous weeks by Jerry Jones makes it seem like Garrett could be out of a job if the Cowboys fail to reach the Super Bowl once again.
The good news for Garrett is even if Dallas comes up short in Philadelphia, they technically would still be alive to win the NFC East title, but also with the way this team has dealt with pressure at times, this is the last scenario they want to be in.
