Jerry Jones: Cowboys Won't Fire Jason Garrett Midseason

In the loss to the Titans, Prescott had a pass intercepted in the end zone and lost a fumble, leading to two Tennessee touchdowns.

The week nine slate concludes with the Dallas Cowboys (3-4) facing off against the Tennessee Titans (3-4).

Amari Cooper had a 4-yard TD catch in his first game for the Cowboys, who sent a first-round pick to Oakland for the fourth-year receiver.

Mariota broke a 14-14 tie in the third quarter when he pulled the ball out of Lewis' gut at the last second and delivered a 7-yard shovel pass to Jonnu Smith to put the Titans ahead for good. But Garrett acknowledged that the QB's play hurt Dallas at times in the loss to Tennessee. This win by the Titans (4-4) ended their three-game losing streak while handing the Cowboys (3-5) their first loss in four home games and making their road to the playoffs a hard one. Visit SportsLine now to see which side of Titans-Cowboys you need to jump on Monday, all from a renowned sportswriter who is 17-8 on Cowboys games. Mariota will more than likely not have an offensive line that will keep him clean in the pocket, so for the Titans to win, he must break the pocket and make some plays in the passing game and in the running game as well. He has also rushed for 247 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

"I know that we had breakdowns", owner Jerry Jones said.

Prescott is under contract through 2019, but the Cowboys can begin negotiations on an extension after this season if they choose. He has run for 247 yards and two scores. A fumble while trying to churn for yardage on a sack at his 40-yard line set up Tennessee's go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter. A few weeks after strongly backing Scott Linehan when asked if he still had faith in his offensive coordinator, Garrett had a different tone when asked if he envisioned a scenario where he took over play-calling. During the next drive for the Titans, the Cowboys defense allowed four 3rd down conversions. Jones declined several chances to address that issue. "We want to play better than we played (Monday), so I certainly think each individual and coach and front-office person is going to have to do better, including me".
