IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas owner Jerry Jones says coach Jason Garrett will return in 2014 regardless of whether the Cowboys end a three-year playoff drought this season.

Jones said Thursday he's "disappointed" the Cowboys don't have a better record as they get ready for an important NFC East game against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Dallas is 5-5, a half-game behind idle Philadelphia in the division. The Cowboys are trailing in the NFC East for the first time this season. The Giants (4-6) have won four straight after an 0-6 start.

The Cowboys finish the regular season at home against the Eagles. They have a lost a playoffs-or-bust finale to a division rival each of the past two seasons.
