The New York Jets fired coach Todd Bowles and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dimissed coach Dirk Koetter.

The Jets (4-12) announced the decision Sunday after losing the season finale 38-3 to the New England Patriots. Bowles went 24-40 in four seasons with no playoff appearances.

Bowles, 54, was hired in January 2015 after New York fired Rex Ryan. The Jets got off to a solid start under Bowles, who guided them to a 10-6 record, but they fell a win shy of the playoffs in his first season and never got any closer.

The Bucs (5-11) announced the firing of Koetter, 59, three hours after losing their season finale 34-32 to the Atlanta Falcons. He had a 19-29 record.

Koetter was promoted from offensive coordinator to his first NFL head coaching position when Tampa Bay fired Lovie Smith in January 2016. He led the Bucs to a 9-7 record that year, but followed up with consecutive 5-11 finishes.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11) are sticking with coach Doug Marrone, top decision-maker Tom Coughlin and General Manager Dave Caldwell in 2019.

Team owner Shad Khan made the announcement minutes after the Jaguars lost their season finale 20-3 to the Houston Texans.

"I have the same trust in Tom, Dave and Doug as I did upon their introduction two years ago, and I do believe our best path forward for the moment is the one less disruptive and dramatic," Khan said.

 

Aaron Rodgers hurt

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion in a 31-0 loss to the visiting Detroit Tigers.

The Packers (6-9-1) trailed 21-0 at the half and lost Rodgers early in the second quarter. The quarterback was sacked and lost his helmet on the second play of the game.

Rodgers played two more series before departing with a concussion.

Backup quarterback DeShone Kizer finished 16-of-35 for 132 yards and an interception in the Packers' season finale.

 

Bills honor tackle

The Buffalo Bills honored retiring defensive tackle Kyle Williams before their season finale against the Miami Dolphins.

Williams was the final Bills player out of the tunnel and was then greeted by his wife, Jill, and five children at the 35-yard line. He pumped his fist while running out on the field to a large cheer from the fans.

Williams is retiring after 13 seasons, all with the Bills. He is Buffalo's longest-tenured active player and holds Bills records among defensive tackles with 183 games played and entered the game with 48 sacks.
