The NFL could be considering eliminating the postseason after two decades.
That’s according to a report from Wired.
The network’s sources suggest the league is looking at eliminating the playoffs because it “has become a distraction to the league.”
The report, written by reporter Brian Krebs, says the NFL is also looking to change the playoff format to give teams a chance to play their division rival in the regular season.
“The league is also considering making the playoffs an additional event for the next few seasons, something that is unlikely to happen,” the article reads.
“As a result, the league might be considering cutting the postseason, the way the NFL had previously eliminated it.
The NFL has been a major player in creating the playoff, and that could be an opportunity for the league to turn things around.”
The NFL hasn’t released any details about the proposed changes.
In January, the NFL said the playoffs were “not the right way to determine a team’s playoff destiny.”
