It's time for the Jaguars vs Cowboys live stream, which features a newly minted starter for the Jags taking on two signal callers fighting for the right to be Dak Prescott’s back-up in “Big D.” It goes without saying this NFL live stream will be focused on whoever is under center.

In a press conference Wednesday, first-year Jacksonville head coach Urban Meyer announced their preseason quarterback competition was over between rookie Trevor Lawrence and the incumbent Gardner Minshew. Meyer told reporters the job was going to Lawrence. 

“We wanted him to earn it…We [feel] he has,” Meyer said Wednesday. Now, not only will Lawrence get the week one regular season start against the Texans, but he will also start this final preseason game. 

While the Jags have the pecking order in their quarterback room settled, the Cowboys still have some sorting out to do. Franchise quarterback Dak Prescott took a huge step forward in his rehab Wednesday. The 28-year-old took snaps with his teammates and not just individual drills for the first time in almost a month. This means Dallas’ QB1 will likely be healthy enough to be their starter week one in the regular season. Now they just have to figure out who will be his immediate back-up if there is a setback. 

For their first three preseason games, including the Hall of Fame Game, Garrett Gilbert has been the Cowboys starter with Cooper Rush coming in after him. Now head coach Mike McCarthy seems to be calling an audible for the preseason finale. Rush is expected to be named the starter against the Jags, with Gilbert coming off the bench. 

The latest news out of Jacksonville is that the following players are not in today's game: Marvin Jones Jr., DJ Clark Jr., Tyson Campbell, Tavon Austin, Tre Herndon, Josh Allen, A.J. Cann, Brandon Linder, and Andrew Norwell.

The Cowboys host the Jaguars as 4.5-point home underdogs. The over/under is 37.
