NFL fans and teams should not expect an expanded playoff field or a centralized replay system to be implemented for the 2014 season.
According to the Associated Press, the NFL Competition Committee is unlikely to tamper too heavily with the sport in the coming year.
In the report, New York Giants owner John Mara commented on the subject league-wide replay.
“There’s still a lot of discussion to be done,” New York Giants owner John Mara said when asked about using one location to determine replay reviews. “I think it’s going to be difficult to get done on that this year.”
Mara also discussed the addition of another team from each conference being included into the current playoff structure, something that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the committee would also explore.
“I like the way it works right now and I would be a little nervous about watering it down,” he said. “We did have a situation this year where a 10-win team didn’t get in the playoffs and that’s tough to stomach. We were in that situation a few years ago, and (expansion) would pretty much ensure that didn’t happen.”
