The Lions and Bears showed their coaches the door. Bruce Arians of the Cardinals found it himself. And Vance Joseph of the Broncos remained gainfully employed despite enduring the sort of season that doesn’t go down well in Denver. What is traditionally the NFL’s biggest day for firings

, ”Black Monday,” started with a flurry when Detroit canned Jim Caldwell and Chicago did the same to John Fox, both before noon. ”Today is the tough part of our results-oriented business,” said Fox, whose team went 14-34 and finished last in all three of his seasons in Chicago. He and Caldwell, who went 36-28 in four seasons but didn’t win a playoff game, joined Jack Del Rio of the Raiders and Chuck Pagano of the Colts, whose owners didn’t even wait until the calendar turned, choosing to sack them after their games Sunday. But that was it. Arians, who has been dealing with health problems, including a bout with kidney cancer, announced he was leaving Arizona, though that was widely expected. In a teary news conference, the 65-year-old Arians called his stay in Arizona, which included 49 victories over five seasons ”a great ride.” Sporting his trademark cap and toying with his grey goatee

, Arians said an eye opener came over the summer when his wife told him his son, Jake, was soon to turn 40. ”It hit me like a ton of bricks, that I missed all that time,” Arians said. ”That’s the culture. I probably wouldn’t change anything.” Joseph, a rookie head coach who oversaw a 5-11 season that included an eight-game losing streak, was on the hot seat. But his boss, John Elway, slept on it and decided to keep Joseph and not begin a search for the team’s fourth coach in five years. ”We believe in Vance as our head coach,” Elway tweeted . ”Together, we’ll put in the work to improve in all areas and win in 2018.” The Marvin Lewis situation in Cincinnati – well, it’s complicated. Lewis completed his 15th season with the Bengals, and conventional wisdom held that he might not be asked to return. He met with owner Mike Brown on Monday, but no conclusions were reached. Lewis said the decision was more complicated than management simply asking him back, and that the owner and the front office need to be on the same page. The five vacancies (six counting the Giants

, who fired Bob McAdoo earlier in December) naturally triggered a flurry of speculation about which assistant coaches might be moving on to take over the teams. Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks confirmed that the Colts, Lions and Giants had asked him to interview. Patriots coordinators Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia were, as usual, on a number of lists, and Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz was considered one of New York’s top candidates. Maybe most intriguing was the prospect of Jon Gruden leaving the broadcasting booth and returning to the Raiders. ESPN reported that Raiders owner Mark Davis was trying to lure Gruden back to the sideline with an offer that could include an ownership stake. In Houston, Texans general manager Rick Smith said he would leave the team for at least a year while his wife, Tiffany, fights breast cancer. There had been speculation that coach Bill O’Brien might lose his job, though it appeared O’Brien would stay on. Smith dismissed the notion that he and O’Brien don’t get along, saying they have a great working relationship. ”We continue to do that and that’s another reason why this is a decision that I can make,” Smith said. — The New England Patriots jumped to an early 10-0 lead against the Dallas Cowboys, and were able to hold onto a victory due some good situational football being played in all three phases— all while the team used a heavy personnel rotation on offense, defense and in the kicking game. With that being said, let’s dig a little deeper into the snap count numbers from the game to get an impression of how the Patriots used their players.OffenseTotal snaps: 70Starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn was back on the field on Sunday to man the left tackle spot. And despite having missed the last eight games due to a toe injury that landed him on short-term injured reserve, the team trusted the second-year man to go the distance against Dallas. The other tackle spot

, meanwhile, was subject to more rotation given Marcus Cannon’s illness: Marshall Newhouse played eight snaps in his place, and three more as a third tackle.The Patriots also saw considerable contributions by its young wide receivers. With Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett both out because of injury, the team turned to rookies N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers: while Harry played 57 of a possible 70 offensive snaps, Meyers was on the field for 54. Julian Edelman saw 68 snaps as the only other true wide receiver active (Matthew Slater remains a core special teamer and wideout in name only).At the other positions, New England went business as usual. Benjamin Watson continues to be the number one tight end, even though his playing time share decreased compared to the last two weeks and with Matt LaCosse seeing more action. At running back, Sony Michel saw most of the snaps as the Patriots tried to establish a presence on the ground in bad conditions — a plan that worked well at times.DefenseTotal snaps: 64With starting outside cornerback Jason McCourty inactive because of a groin injury, the Patriots primarily used J.C. Jackson opposite an outstanding Stephon Gilmore. The second-year played three-fourths of the team’s defensive snaps, with second-round rookie Joejuan Williams also subbing in for nine snaps. Jackson, like the rest of the secondary, looked good in his extended role even though he took a bad angle on Randall Cobb’s 52-yard catch-and-run.Also seeing plenty of time on the field was strong safety Patrick Chung. After missing last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles because of heel and chest injuries, the veteran returned to the lineup and promptly played 86% of New England’s defensive snaps — tied with Kyle Van Noy for third most on the team behind only fellow defensive backs Devin McCourty and Stephon Gilmore, who did not leave the contest even once.Speaking of Van Noy, he led a linebacker group that saw plenty of action for its top-three options and looked good behind a defensive line headed by Danny Shelton and Lawrence Guy: the one-two punch along the interior line generated a solid upfield push at times

, despite seeing a heavy workload. The two 300-plus-pounders played 69% and 67%, respectively.Special TeamsTotal snaps: 3133 of the Patriots’ 46 active players saw action in the kicking game, with seven playing exclusively in the game’s third phase: the three specialists — punter/kickoff specialist Jake Bailey, long snapper Joe Cardona and place kicker Nick Folk — as well as defensive backs Justin Bethel and Nate Ebner, and offensive linemen Jermaine Eluemunor and James Ferentz. Bethel and Ebner once again led the special teams units in playing time.What can also be seen when looking at the list of special teams playing time is that two players were once again used in all three phases of the game: wide receiver Matthew Slater saw his usual high number of kicking game snaps while also playing as the deep man on offensive kneel-downs and an additional safety on the final play of the game; Elandon Roberts played as a linebacker, fullback, and on the Patriots’ kickoff units.Did not playWith the Patriots playing another close game, backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham had to stay on the bench throughout the contest. The fourth-round rookie has been on the 46-man game day roster for all 11 of the team’s games this season, but has seen the field just three times for a combined 15 offensive snaps.InactiveThe Patriots entered the game against Dallas with three starting-caliber players out: wide receivers Phillip Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu missed the game because of a concussion and ankle injury, respectively, while cornerback Jason McCourty was absent due to a groin issue. Damien Harris, meanwhile, was ruled out with a hamstring injury — although he likely would have joined the other inactives anyway as a scratch even when healthy.
