Eberflus Now Favorite To Be First Coach Fired

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus' seat is getting warmer after the team's 0-2 start, and with supposed-franchise quarterback Justin Fields regressing, Eberflus has jumped to the top of our oddsboard of first coach to be fired this season. Safe to say, the Bears playoff chances are not looking good. 

Dating back to last season, the Bears have lost 12 straight games, with their last win a 33-14 road victory at the New England Patriots on Oct. 24 to improve to 3-4 record at the time. Chicago now will pay a visit to the Kansas City Chiefs at 4:25 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 24. Already with a short leash, Eberflus might not see Week 4 to start October. 

Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles last week was third on the list to be let go at +700 (12.5%), despite a surprising 20-17 road victory at the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday. Bowles is now off our board after the Bucs got to 2-0 (over the Bears) and the Chargers' Brandon Staley has made his first appearance on our list, at +700.
