NFL Denies Report That League Will Expand Playoffs With Additional WC Teams

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In the NBA, 16 of the 30 teams make the playoffs each season.

The same number of teams make it in the NHL.

In Major League Baseball, 10 of 30 clubs qualify for the postseason. Prior to 2012, only eight teams made it each season.

Is the NFL looking to follow in baseball’s footsteps and expand its number of playoff berths?

As it currently stands, 12 out of 32 teams make the playoffs. On Monday morning, radio host Dan Patrick said that the league is planning to add an additional wild-card team from each conference to the postseason tournament.
