This year's "Black Monday" is poised to be a busy one with several head coaches already fired and several more expected to be on the chopping block. With news about each head coaching job trickling in, we now have a clearer picture of whose job is either on the line or all but gone.

According to FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer, seven coaches are likely to be fired regardless of how their teams perform this Sunday.

The coaches are New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles, Cleveland Browns interim head coach Gregg Williams, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph, Green Bay Packers interim head coach Joe Philbin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter, and Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks.

Williams is the only coach on the list with a chance for his team to finish with a winning record.

Lewis is perhaps the most surprising name on the list. He is the second-longest tenured coach in the league, having coached the Bengals since 2003. But after three straight losing seasons, it's possible he's run out of chances in Cincinnati.

The Cardinals and Jets have the worst records in their respective conferences heading into Sunday, and both deployed rookie quarterbacks for most of the season.

Philbin has served as interim coach of the Packers since the team fired Mike McCarthy earlier this season.

Joseph and Koetter have both coached their respective teams for several years, but have not reached the playoffs.

Official announcements on these decisions could come on Monday.
