NFL eyes playoff expansion

Posted: Updated:

Orlando (WOIO) - Playoff expansion is coming to the NFL. The only question is 'when'?

Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Wednesday that there's been a "tremendous amount of support" for expanding the playoffs, and wouldn't even rule it out for the upcoming season.

"It's not out of the question," Goodell said of 2014 expansion. He also added that he "wouldn't rule it out" but that it wasn't entirely likely for the league to expand from 12 teams to 14 for the upcoming season.

"I think there's a tremendous amount of interest in this possibly to the point of support," Goodell said. "We still want to do some additional work including a meeting with the Players Association."
