Since being hired by the Rams in 2012, Fisher has led the team to four losing seasons with a record of 27-36-1.

With ten more losses, Jeff Fisher will have more than any NFL coach in history. If the Rams go 7-9, Fisher will join former Denver Broncos, New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Dan Reeves with the record 165 losses. Reeves famously coached more games than any head coach not to win a Super Bowl or NFL Championship from the pre-Super Bowl era (357). The coach with the second-most games coached to not win the trophy? Former (x2) Los Angeles Rams Head Coach Chuck Knox (334). Jeff Fisher has been a head coach for 324 games.

He is one of only two NFL head coaches hired before 2015 who has yet to post a winning record and take his team to the postseason (the other being Jacksonville Jaguars HC Gus Bradley who has 18/1 odds in the above).
