Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is on the brink – and NFL expert Jason Bell is adamant Jerry Jones will pull the trigger sooner rather than later.
The heavyweights have been erratic all season despite some strong performances from Dak Prescott.
They are 6-6 and top of the NFC East having benefited hugely from their rivals’ similarly dreadful form.
Garrett’s side slumped to another dismal defeat on Thanksgiving.
The Buffalo Bills bagged a comfortable 26-15 victory in the high-profile holiday fixture.
Cowboys owner Jones had publicly proclaimed before the match that Garrett’s position was safe.

Bell, however, has warned the franchise’s star men that the 53-year-old will be gone imminently.
“I see why he said it’s not [under threat], because he chose Jason Garret,” he told the BBC.
“But he’s going to have to make that decision.
“And he’s going to have to have some sort of change with that staff, because they have the players.
“He’s picking the right players but obviously they’re not prepared week in, week out for the schematical difference we’re seeing and it’s being exposed.”
Influential Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott claimed over the weekend that the side need to up the ante.
“We need to start to get this going now,” he explained.
“Not many games left. It’s really crunch time now. We’ve got to win some ballgames.”
Another looming issue is Prescott’s future in Dallas.
Jones has publicly claimed for a while that he wants Prescott tied to a long-term deal.
But former defensive end Cliff Avril isn’t convinced he truly rates his quarterback.
“I agree that he’s gone under the radar – and that’s why they haven’t given him the deal yet,” he told Starsport.
“It’s because even the Cowboys didn’t value him as much.
“But now I’d say that this year he’s played much better and maybe they trust him a bit more.
“If you look at the last few weeks, Elliott hasn’t been running the ball as much and Prescott has been really leading the way.
“Yes he’s been undervalued and he will cost them a lot of money at the end of the year.”
