NFL considering expanded playoff format
According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the NFL is considering expanding the current playoff format to include 14 teams.
The new plan would reduce the preseason to three games, using the extra week for a new round of playoffs.
In an interview earlier in the week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suggested the league might move in this direction, but that it would not happen in 2014. The report from ESPN says that 2014 is still a possibility if the owners vote it in.
