The entire Dallas Cowboys future is on the line on Week 17. Not only do they need to win to go 8-8 and give themselves a chance at the playoffs, but there are a lot of contracts that come into play. Obviously, the playoffs would require a Philadelphia Eagles loss and a Cowboys win, and this could change a lot about their future at quarterback and at head coach.
Dak Prescott was asked about his thoughts on the possibility this could be Jason Garrett’s last game as the head coach in Dallas:
“I think its the last game on mine as well so I’ll be damned if I speak on anyone else’s future or their place.”

A Dallas loss to Washington ends the Cowboys’ season, Jason Garrett’s tenure (presumably) and Dak Prescott’s rookie contract. To make matters more complicated, Prescott and Garrett could (and should considering it’s against Washington) both impress in a Dallas win on Sunday, the Eagles could beat the Giants and the Cowboys would still be eliminated.
Many believe Jason Garrett should be fired regardless of the results, but props up to Dak Prescott for not talking about another man’s job.
Dak Prescott is also in an odd spot, where half of America thinks he is great, and the other half thinks he is overrated… He wants $40 million a year, and who knows if the Cowboys really want to do that…
