The NFL owners have confirmed, via a vote on today’s teleconference, that there will be expanded playoffs starting with the 2020 season, source said. Expected and now official. One more team per conference.

What a shocking development.  When given the opportunity to give themselves an extra paycheck of premium advertising revenue,  the owners voted yes.

It's about time, they should have done this years ago. Just look at all of the 9-7/10-6 teams over the past 20 years that missed the playoffs.

 

Of course it wouldn't happen so much without the ridiculous 8 division structure. It has always created bad division winners that get in ahead of a more deserving team from a highly competitive division that ends up missing the playoffs as a result. Hopefully this will help alleviate that problem.

I'm honestly on the fence about this. There are many pros & cons. As a Titan fan we should celebrate this because we went 9-7 5 times last decade lol. But ima laugh when some 7-9 or 8-8 team makes the playoffs and wins the Superbowl lol. One of these garbage divisions is going to do it lol.

I agree it sucks when a team with 10 wins or even 11 wins (2008 patriots) doesnt make the playoffs, but I dont think a 7-9 or 8-8 team deserves to be in it either. I kinda like all the playoff scenarios at the end. Alot of Drama.

Why the fuck is this news? It was part of the cba to expand the playoffs and the owners and players already voted yes on it. 

 

This is like people voting on june being part of summer. Every one agrees on that shit already

The NFL likely will be expanding the playoffs from 12 to 14 teams today. That likely won’t result in a bunch of losing teams qualifying as the No. 7 seed in either conference moving forward.

 

According to the NFL, a 14-team format since the playoffs expanded to 12 teams in 1990 would have resulted in 60 more playoff teams. Of those, 44 would have had a winning record. That’s 73.3 percent.

 

Another 15 would have qualified with a .500 record. That’s 25 percent.

 

Only one team of 60 — 1.6 percent of all extra playoff teams — would have made it with a losing record.

 

Expansion to 14 teams also will keep the NFL at No. 3 among all major American sports when it comes to the percentage of teams to qualify for the postseason. In the NBA, 16 of 30 teams (53.3 percent) make it to the playoffs. In the NHL, 16 of 31 teams (51.6 percent) qualify for the playoffs.

 

In the NFL, 14 of 32 teams (43.7 percent) will make it, under the expanded format. Only Major League Baseball, with 10 of 30 teams (30 percent) qualifying, has a lower percentage.
