According to a report by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Oakland Raiders (6-8) head coach Jack Del Rio has a "50-50 proposition' shot of continuing his tenure at the helm. 

In the same report, Florio reports that it's a 'near certainty' offensive coordinator Todd Downing 'will be gone' at the end of the season.

Under new offensive coordinator Todd Downing, the Raiders currently rank 16th in passing (233.1 yards per game) and 25th in rushing (93.7 yards per game) despite owning the NFL's highest-paid offensive line.

The Raiders' fortunes seemed to have taken a turn positive after going 12-4 in 2016. Quarterback Derek Carr broke his leg in the second to last regular season game, which ended their Super Bowl aspirations. 

Carr passed for 3,113 yards with 20 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, for a 55.1 QBR.
