NFL insider notebook: Robert Saleh gets an assist to avoid dubious Jets mark, plus Week 17 picks

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Unlike teams who have fired their head coach in-season and roll with an interim for the remainder of the year, those wins and losses do get credited to the permanent head coach. “So in the case of a coach missing a game or games due to illness, it still goes to the individual who has the title of head coach because they are ultimately returning. If a coach is dismissed, the wins and losses are credited to the interim head coach.”

So what Rich Bisaccia does with the Raiders doesn’t impact Jon Gruden’s.

This year there have been six games coached by what I’ll call temporary interims, where the head coach has been sidelined due to COVID protocols and an assistant has stepped up for one game only. My misplaced faith in the Browns will lead me to picking Cleveland here and probably turning my first 16-0 week into 15-1.

The pick: Browns
