Freddie Kitchens leads the dubious charge of five head coaches that should consider themselves on the hot seat entering NFL Week 16.

Isn’t it crazy to think how NFL Week 16 is already here, and the playoffs will officially be underway in less than three weeks?

With two games to go, most of the attention for football fans at the moment is on which teams will find a way to squeeze into the playoffs.

But also, for the teams that could be watching the playoffs from home, those same fans should be keeping an extra eye on which head coaches could be in need of a new job once the regular season is officially in the books.

Over the last few weeks, Jason Garrett has become quite familiar with the hot seat since the Dallas Cowboys were tanking real fast, but luckily the head coach will catch a break this week after his team embarrassed the Los Angeles Rams Saturday afternoon.

Unfortunately, Freddie Kitchens couldn’t watch his team do the same after the Cleveland Browns suffered a brutal 38-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in a game that saw Kenyan Drake find the end zone four times.

At the beginning of the season, the Browns were viewed by many as an underrated Super Bowl contender, and even as of late the team seemed like they may find a way to sneak into the playoffs before it all fell apart.

Numerous factors come into play when it comes to Cleveland coming up short yet again in 2019, but there’s no question that Freddie Kitchens is going to receive a majority of the blame for this missed opportunity.

As for whether the Browns would be willing to give Kitchens another chance in 2020, well this is going to be one of the most popular topics of discussion over the next two weeks.
