The Carolina Panthers head into this week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at 0-2 on the season and with quarterback Cam Newton unlikely to play.
It’s just the latest example of the Ron Rivera-led squad failing to remain relevant. Carolina finished last season 7-9 after earning a playoff appearance in 2017.
With things going downhill fast, Rivera is now the betting favorite to be the first NFL head coach fired this season (via Odds Shark).
Here’s a look at the top-five overall odds to be the first coach fired.
Ron Rivera, Carolina Panthers: +350
Dan Quinn, Atlanta Falcons: +400
Jay Gruden, Washington Redskins: +500
Doug Marrone, Jacksonville Jaguars: +550
Matt Patricia, Detroit Lions: +900
