NFL rumors: Week 15 news on injuries, suspensions, more
By Brian Rauf, Chat Sports
Week 14 of the NFL season concluded on Monday night with the New England Patriots picking up a 30–23 win over the Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots (11–2) gained sole possession of first place in the AFC with the win, while the Ravens (7–6) fell one game behind the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North race.
However, the biggest news of the day came off the field, when the Los Angeles Rams announced they fired head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher had a record of just 31–45–1 in nearly five seasons with the team, and he tied the NFL record for most losses in a career (165) in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
