For all of the midseason buzz that both coach Jay Gruden and quarterback Robert Griffin III might not be with the Washington Redskins in 2015, all signs currently are pointing toward the pair returning, as the 2014 regular season winds down. That's particularly true after Washington beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.

In the short-term, Jay Cutler is going to ride the bench for the Chicago Bears, with Jimmy Clausen getting the start Sunday. What they do with Cutler for the long term is going to be one of the more intriguing stories of the upcoming offseason.

Trading him will be complicated due to his massive contract, but there may be some interest in the veteran quarterback.

Will Browns double-down with Mariota?

The Cleveland Browns' approach to their quarterback situation this season generated seven wins in their first 11 games, but since then, they have lost three straight. Meanwhile, game play has proved that Brian Hoyer isn't good enough to be their starter and the jury remains out on how good Johnny Manziel can be.

In other words, they may be back to square one at quarterback come the offseason. With that in mind, they may try to target Marcus Mariota in the draft.

Last week, Julio Jones couldn't quite push through his hip injury and was declared inactive for the first time this season. His availability for Week 16 has been in doubt all week, too, though it appears things are trending in a positive direction.

SD's only fantasy-worthy WR on Saturday

San Diego's passing game has trailed off considerably over the second half of the season, and on Sunday the Chargers face a San Francisco secondary that has actually held things together pretty well. So this probably isn't the week to be banking on a Chargers receiver to come through with a big day.

That's even more true now that Keenan Allen has been ruled out vs. the 49ers. But if you have to play one in your fantasy championship, which should be in your lineup? Here's what one of the experts says.

How to fix Robert Griffin III? That difficult question is one that Washington -- or possibly another team -- will be tasked with next season. On Saturday, John Keim of ESPN's NFL Nation writes that if RG III stays with the Redskins, the team plans to hire a dedicated quarterback coach to address some of the issues that have plagued the former first-round pick over the last two seasons.

Aside from Michigan's search for someone to replace Brady Hoke, all is quiet on the collegiate coaching front at the moment. That could change a week from Monday when several NFL head coaches face the chopping block. At that point, we should hear the names of some college coaches mentioned as replacement candidates.

As Black Monday rapidly approaches, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan and Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith squarely are on hot seats. Sure, technically, Smith has his team in the playoff chase, but at 5-9, that's largely due to the NFC South being the lamest division in the NFL.

Will Pats slow Jets rushing attack?

The last time the New York Jets faced the New England Patriots, back in Week 7, the Jets made a game of it by relentlessly leaning on their rushing attack. They came up short, losing 27-25 in New England, but Chris Ivory racked up 107 rushing yards and a score, while Chris Johnson chipped in another 61 yards.

Not surprisingly, we should expect to see them focus on rushing once again this weekend, as these teams meet in New York for a rematch.

Will Marc Trestman, Phil Emery survive?

The Chicago Bears' Thursday press conference was great cinéma vérité, as coach Marc Trestman answered myriad questions about benching Jay Cutler, who followed up Trestman with his own session with reporters. It gave us a chance to read between the lines about the future of each of them with the Bears.

Trestman's seat seems to be as hot as any coach in the NFL -- not just with his front office but with his players, particularly following his handling of offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer's admission that he was the source of anti-Cutler comments made to a reporter.

Is Josh Freeman done in the NFL?

We haven't seen Josh Freeman on a football field since October of 2013, during his lone appearance for the Minnesota Vikings, following his severance from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was a disastrous performance, as he completed 23 of 50 passes for 190 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT, as the Vikes lost 23-7 to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.

Despite his obvious struggles on the field and issues off of the field, Freeman is just 26 years old, so he should have more gas left in the tank. It sounds like he doesn't believe he is done in the NFL.

Why have Cowboys been better on road?

For all of the success that the Dallas Cowboys have had this season, their 10-4 record doesn't even guarantee them a playoff bid at this stage. On top of that, we have their perplexing records at home and on the road: 3-4 at home, 7-0 away.

While there may be deeper or more subtle issues that have impacted their home woes and road success, there are some seemingly simple explanations, too.

"One factor in the Cowboys’ performance in the four home losses was [Tony] Romo’s iffy status, a contrast to his Most Valuable Player caliber of play in the rest of the games," wrote Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram.

The Detroit Lions D has turned into one of the top outfits in the league under the direction of first-year NFL coordinator Teryl Austin. As is the case for many successful coordinators, Austin may generate some head-coaching interest during the offseason from teams that fire their current coach.

So far during his first season with the Indianapolis Colts, Hakeem Nicks has been a complete non-factor. He has totaled just 287 yards and 4 TDs on 26 receptions and has yet to top 50 yards in a game. He did manage to score a key 22-yard touchdown in Week 15, though he ended up with just one other catch (also for 22 yards).
