Story HighlightsLeslie Frazier, Gary Kubiak among coaches on the hot seatPatriots improve to 5 1, but issues remainHe has one year left on his contract and Sunday's 35 10 smackdown at the hands of the Carolina Panthers was the ugliest at the Metrodome since a 31 3 loss to Green Bay in 2010, a day before Brad Childress was canned.

Most troubling for a cheap jerseys defensive minded head coach such as Frazier is the disconnect between the way the Vikings practice and the coverage breakdowns that keep occurring on Sundays.

"When you lose, things change," Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said. "When you lose, heads roll. That's just the way it is. Players, coaches . I don't know who's going to make it to the end of the season."

The impact of coaching on NFL success can't be overstated, and Frazier and his staff whose Vikings teams have been outscored 108 27 in three games out of the bye since 2011 aren't the only ones trying to figure out how to regain playoff form.

PHOTOS: Hot seat heat indexHot seat heat index for NFL coachesA little more than a month ago, Rex Ryan (green hat) was atop the list of NFL head coaches on the hot seat. How times have changed. Ryan's Jets are one of the NFL's biggest surprises, especially after Monday's 30 28 defeat of the Falcons in Atlanta. Ryan's team (3 2) is just a game behind the Patriots for first place in the AFC East. However Jets owner Woody Johnson won't say if Ryan is saving his job. But USA TODAY Sports' Tom Pelissero will. Ryan's contract expires after the 2014 season, and apparently there's been no talk of an extension. Here's a look Ryan and other hot seat candidates, with a heat index on a scale of 1 (low) to 10. Joe Camporeale, USA TODAY SportsThe Houston Texans' 38 13 home loss to the St. Louis Rams raised the volume on questions about coach Gary Kubiak, who's an offensive coach with a quarterback that seems to be going the wrong direction .

Like Kubiak, Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith hasn't translated regular season success to the playoffs and has seen Super Bowl hopes sour quickly in 2013. And a fourth 2012 playoff team, coach Mike Shanahan's Washington Redskins, are 1 4 after losing to the Dallas Cowboys.

The common denominator with these coaches: contracts that are believed to expire after the 2014 season.

Firing a coach with a recent track record like Smith's seems unlikely. Even Kubiak and Shanahan don't appear to be in imminent danger. But eating one year of a deal is rarely cost prohibitive. In a win now business, few can feel safe.
