Although commissioner Roger Goodell would like to see the NFL expand the number of teams that make the playoffs from 12 to 14, it is unclear whether there is enough support by the owners to make his plan come to fruition, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post. Even if the owners agree to such a plan, it likely would not be put in place until at least the 2015 campaign.
