ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says it's possible the playoffs could expand next season.
Goodell said Wednesday at the spring meetings that "it's not out of the question." He says he "wouldn't rule it out, but I wouldn't say that's the direction we're heading."
The owners discussed adding two playoff teams to the current 12, one in each conference. The topic is certain to come up when Goodell meets with the players union April 8, and again at the owners' May meeting in Atlanta.
Goodell adds that there was a "tremendous amount of interest in this, possibly even to the point of support." He believes it will make the late-season division and wild-card races even more compelling.
Adding two postseason games also would increase TV revenues.
