    (CNN)Since 1966, NFL fans have become accustomed to watching the Dallas Cowboys play on Thanksgiving.

    Along with the Detroit Lions, "America's Team" are one of the two teams who play on the national holiday every year.
    And in 2019, following an inconsistent season, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett might be more thankful than most to be involved in their game against the Buffalo Bills.
      But long-time owner Jerry Jones, off the back of a disappointing loss to the New England Patriots and with speculation swirling about the future of the coaching staff, remains firmly behind Garrett.
      "The guy who has the final say on who's coaching this team at any position, is my decision," Jones told CNN Sport's Coy Wire.
      "And so, if I am critiquing any part of this football team, it's a critique of me as well. No, we're not satisfied with having lost that game. No one ever is.
      Jones talks to Garrett before a game against the New Orleans Saints.
      "But we want to be at our very best. As far as the coaches themselves, I stand with anybody and defy. I am a Jason Garrett man. I'm known for that."
      Garrett has been head coach of the Cowboys since 2011. Garrett was the Cowboys' backup quarterback for their two Superbowl wins in 1993 and 1996.
      The Cowboys' 6-5 record has them sitting atop the AFC East and in prime position for a playoff spot.
      But ahead of Thursday's showdown against the 8-3 Bills, the 77-year-old Jones says there is always room for improvement.
      "I want to win the football games, just as he and everybody else does. So, anything that I am frustrated about, should be interpreted as a way to get a little better edge and maybe do something about it."
