NFL OK’s Expanded Playoffs


In the event that Covid-19 causes the NFL season to be ended early due to games being canceled, the league has officially decided to expand the playoffs from 14 to 16 teams. This move has been mooted for a couple of weeks now, and it’s officially been approved by the league that two extra teams could join the field come the postseason.

While there is no word yet on the possibility of a ‘bubble’ being used to complete the playoffs, you’d have to think there is a very high chance of that occurring. The NBA and NHL did it successfully, and MLB also followed suit, so we will probably hear news on that soon, regardless of how many teams ultimately end up in the playoffs.
