DETROIT — With the losses mounting, medical it’s pretty clear Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is in the final weeks of his tenure.

Nothing is definite until owner Shad Khan makes it so, but at this point, the Jaguars would likely need to win at least five of their remaining six games for Bradley to be retained for the 2017-18 season. The Jaguars haven’t won more than five games in any of Bradley’s three previous seasons, so winning five in the next six weeks — especially given the way the team played in the first 10 games — is unrealistic.

It seems that the only uncertainty now is when Khan will make the move. Could it be Monday? Sunday’s 26-19 loss to the Detroit Lions at Ford Field dropped the Jaguars to 2-8. It was their fifth loss in a row and 20th in their past 22 road games, and it ensured the franchise a ninth consecutive non-winning season.

Will Khan wait until the Jaguars lose their ninth game — Sunday in Buffalo? — therefore ensuring they cannot finish with a winning record? Does what happens in each game each week matter? Is Khan simply going to wait until the end of the season?
