The NFL regular season officially ended on Sunday night, which meant that on Monday, a number of teams looking for a change in leadership fired their head coach.
This year, of the eight head coaches who have been fired, five were African-American. The NFL has a complicated history around diversity in top leadership positions, and has instituted rules specifically aimed at increasing opportunities for minority candidates. We'll discuss what Monday's developments mean for the league as a whole.
Also, we'll check in on the Pats' playoff chances as we look forward to Wild Card Weekend, which kicks off on Saturday.
