NEW YORK (AP) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the possibility of adding two teams to the playoffs will “continue to get serious consideration.”

Goodell said Friday at his annual pre-Super Bowl news conference that he sees many positives to the proposal. He believes it will make for more meaningful games later in the season, keeping fans engaged.

The league’s competition committee is expected to look into the issue this offseason. Each conference would add one playoff team, bringing the total from 12 to 14.
