According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Garrett is a 2/1 "favorite" to be the first NFL head coach fired in 2014. Garrett has led the Cowboys to three-straight 8-8 finishes and has yet to take Dallas to the playoffs in his first three seasons as the team's head coach. (He also went 5-3 as the interim coach after Wade Phillips was fired in 2010.) This has led to many pundits to speculate whether or not Garrett will make it another year in "Big D."

Continuing with the odds, Dennis Allen of the Raiders has 4/1 odds to be the first head coach fired while the Dolphins' Joe Philbin is 7/1. Doug Marrone is also 8/1 while Rex Ryan of the Jets is 10/1 and Gus Bradley of the Jaguars and Mike Smith of the Falcons are both 12/1, respectively.

In his first two years in Oakland, Allen has led the Raiders to back-to-back 4-12 finishes and doesn't have a lot of talent to work with this season, either. Philbin, meanwhile, has gone 15-17 in his first two years in Miami but also was in charge during the very pubic and embarrassing bully situation involving former offensive lineman Jonathan Martin.

Marrone is only in his second year in Buffalo after leading the Bills to a 6-10 record while Ryan has gone 42-38 in five seasons with the Jets. Ryan brought to the team to back-to-back AFC Championship games in his first two years but haven't sniffed the playoffs since. Smith has done a great job in Atlanta, leading the Falcons to a 60-36 record in his first six seasons, but the team is just 1-4 in the postseason under Smith and coming off a brutal 4-12 season.

Wrapping up the odds, Marvin Lewis of the Bengals and Ron Rivera of the Panthers are both 20/1, respectively, to be the first head coach fired in 2014, while Jeff Fisher of the Rams and Tom Coughlin of the Giants are 25/1, respectively. Marc Trestman of the Bears and Mike Tomlin of the Steelers are also 33/1, respectively.
