When there are rumors swirling about you getting fired, losing probably isn’t the best way to spend the day.
That’s what happened Sunday for Rex Ryan, however, as the Bills were handed a 27-20 loss in Buffalo.
Earlier Sunday, Jason La Canfora reported that Ryan could be fired “as soon as Monday, depending on the team's results against Pittsburgh.”
Sunday couldn’t have been the result he wanted, as the Steelers took a 24-7 lead in the fourth quarter and held on for a 27-20 win.

The Patriots reportedly have acquired wide receiver and kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson in a trade with the Raiders.
Pardon My Take, a podcast by Barstool Sports, first reported the news.
Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal confirmed Patterson is in fact on his way to New England.
Ian Rapaport of NFL Network reports the Patriots sent a fifth-round pick to Oakland and received a Raiders' sixth-rounder along with Patterson.
More to come...
There's one gigantic hole to fill on the Patriots offensive line.
Replacing Nate Solder is no easy task and it's not exactly clear how the Pats will yet.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport was first to report the Patriots would like to bring back Waddle or Fleming.
It now appears that one of the former backup tackle is taking a serious look elsewhere, according to Ian Rapoport.
It's not the best offensive line free agency market this season, so the Pats may prefer to bring back a guy they are familar with.
If Fleming is off the board, Waddle still remains as an option for New England.
