Good news for NFL clubs who are on the brink of playoff contention.According to the USA Today, the National Football League is reportedly entertaining the idea of expanding its postseason field from its current number of 12 to 14 or even 16 teams. On Wednesday, commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledged that the league is indeed considering it.The decision to expand would ultimately benefit teams who previously fell just shy of claiming a playoff berth. However, it may water down the postseason product as it opens the door for teams with .500 (or worse) records to receive regular entrance into the playoffs. For example, the New York Jets (6-7) would currently make the tournament field if the bracket was increased to 16 participants.This idea of expansion is most likely being driven by the league's desire to create even more revenue. The NBA and NHL already use a playoff structure in which 16 out of their 30 teams qualify for the postseason. That means more franchises from these leagues advance beyond the regular season than those who don't. Would America favor more playoff football action, or would they rather keep the setup the way it is? This is one question Goodell may have to consider, but it will likely come down to the almighty dollar, just as everything else does in business.
