Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL owners are meeting in Orlando about potential league changes. Among the discussion was expanding the NFL playoffs by two teams and although a final decision was not made, Goodell won’t completely rule out a possible change as early as next season.
“We have been very incremental in this, and we believe competitively it could make our races toward the end of the year even more exciting, with more teams vying for playoff position,” Goodell said. “We still want to do some additional work.”
I’m not sure how an expanded playoff format would improve the game. Fans already complain about 8-8 teams making it to the postseason, this would only make it worse. It if ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
