EAGLES PLAYOFF PATH MAY BE EASIER: NFL CONSIDERING 16 TEAMS!

By Tom Brennan

ESPN is reporting that the NFL competition committee expects to present a resolution to owners that includes a 16-team playoff scenario in the event games are lost because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The contingency plan — which could become more likely as bye weeks disappear — would feature eight playoff teams from each conference.

The competition committee met via video conference yesterday.

The contingency, if necessary, would take four division champions and four wild-card teams from both the AFC and NFC. The playoff seeds would be 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6 and 4 vs. 5.

NFL team owners already had approved a plan in March to expand the postseason to 14 teams beginning with the 2020 season. That plan increased the number of wild-card teams per conference to three, up from two.
