NFL Playoffs Could Expand To 14-16 Teams
NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - If you like (or don’t like) Roger Goodell’s ambition to increase the regular-season schedule to 18 games, you’re really going to love (or hate) the owners’ next big idea — playoff expansion. That’s what Goodell discussed Wednesday with the media at the owners’ meetings in Dallas.
“Right now we’re with 12 teams obviously. We’ll look at probably 14 or 16 teams,” Goodell said.
So, um, half the league would make the postseason, then? Yeah, that sounds like kind of a brutal idea, right?
Apparently the owners have discussed it before, but didn’t implement anything. That inability to move the idea forward could very well happen again once the competition committee discusses it (we assume) in the spring.
