Researched online and started with downloading "Check My Android" app from the Play Store. ran the sensor diagnostic and found out sensors 1,5, and 7 were not functioning. This includes the accelerometer that reorients the screen. All indications were a hardware issue, out of warranty. I had seen the video of cracking open the back and placing a shim or tape over the ribbon cable, but decided to try everything I could before cracking open the back. And I found something simple that worked for me, and led me to believe this may not be a hardware issue at all.
The process that worked for me ... 1) Go into settings under Accessibility, and turn off auto-rotate, 2) Power down and restart your Nexus, 3) go back into settings under Accessibility, and turn auto-rotate back on. Magically, it is back to normal. I even immediately ran my sensor diagnostics and sensors 1, 5, and 7 are all back online.
Hope it prevents someone else from cracking open their Nexus too.
