Eagles-Cowboys: Game time, how to watch and stream

The Eagles have something extra to play for tonight, as Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett's future could be on the line.

The Eagles will take on the Dallas Cowboys tonight at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday Night Football in an NFC East match-up that could decide the fate of Jason Garrett.

Garrett, the Cowboys head coach since 2010, is on the hot seat after his team lost at home last week against the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the NFL Network he "does not anticipate any coaching changes," though he said the same thing eight years ago when he fired Wade Phillips back in 2010 (and Garrett took over).

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio speculates that if the Eagles (who are currently favored by a touchdown) blow out the Cowboys tonight, it could mean an end to Garrett's hand-clapping tenure as head coach. Here's what Florio wrote:

When the Eagles win against Dallas, the Eagles sometimes win big. 37-9 last year. 27-13 in 2016. 33-10 in 2014. 34-7 and 20-7 in 2011. And who can forget that 44-6 shellacking by the Eagles from the final week of 2008, which put the Eagles into the playoffs and knocked the Cowboys out?
Another outcome like one of those outcomes could end up being the final nail for Garrett, and his final act as head coach of the team.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning that it's his understanding that Garrett is safe through the rest of the season. But Rapoport also noted that if Garrett does end up being fired, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones has an affinity for current Oklahoma Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley.
