The Dallas Cowboys started off the 2019 season with three-straight wins. After the first three weeks of the year, media and fans alike crowned the Cowboys as the champions of the NFC and were ready to put them in the Super Bowl.

However, after three-straight losses, the Cowboys head into this weekend's game against Philadelphia in danger of falling below .500.

With each loss, the questions about Jason Garrett's job security grew louder. Earlier this week, Fox Sports host Colin Cowherd suggested Garrett's days are numbered. The host suggested Jerry Jones has his eyes set on Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley as the Cowboys next head coach.

On Friday, Cowherd asked former Ohio State head coach if Riley would leave for the Cowboys.

"I can't speak for him. I hate to even speculate... That's the one job in professional football you say, 'I've got to go do that,'" Meyer said about the Cowboys job.

Meyer appeared to make it seem like he would be interested in the Cowboys job if it opens after the 2019 season.

However, he didn't want to speculate about Riley's future with the Sooners.

After Two Heisman Trophies and two College Football Playoff appearances, Riley is one of the hottest names in coaching. If he leads the Sooners to a third-straight Heisman and a playoff appearance, Jerry Jones could come calling.
