Expanded Playoffs Could Be Coming In 2015

NFL_Roger_Goodell_2013The NFL wants to reduce the preseason. But that would result in lost revenue. So it can’t happen without a way to make money elsewhere.

With the NFLPA showing no inclination to expand the regular season from 16 to 18 games, a more viable alternative will be to expand the postseason.

On Tuesday, Commissioner Roger Goodell said it could happen by 2015.

“First, we have to make the recommendation,” Goodell told reporters after Tuesday’s ownership meetings. “It would probably be the 2015 season because there are a lot of scheduling issues in the spring of next year. I don’t think we have everything resolved, including talking to the NFLPA, and making sure that is done the right way.”
