Jason Garrett audition is officially over, and now he hopes a permanent Head Coach label would be added to his name. "I would absolutely love to be this team's coach," Garrett said.
Dallas defeated Philadelphia, 14-13 to end their regular season 6-10. Garrett was 5-3 as the Interim Head Coach. Dallas owner Jerry Jones said he has not interviewed any candidates, and has yet to decide if he will keep Garrett. "I'm really interested in following the spirit of the NFL rules and that's what this is all about," Jones said. "I just want to move on so that we can have the coaching decisions out of the way and move on and do what we need to do."
Stephen McGee threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten with 55 seconds left to lift the Cowboys to a victory over the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Michael Vick and nearly every starter didn't play in a game that had no effect on Philadelphia's playoff positioning. The Eagles (10-6) are locked into the No. 3 seed and will host Green Bay in a wild-card game next Sunday.
