When the NFL sanctions it and gets a cut it will. Already talk of moving books inside of stadiums.

Another point:

There are 15 playoff games including the Super Bowl. Add two playoff games.

Imagine if you are running a business and something guaranteed you a 13% (!!!!) increase in revenue for the month, and you already had the facilities and employees to do it.......

The more I think about it the more it stinks. They should just not give bye's and let 8 teams\conference in otherwise the #1 seed is going to have a such a incredible advantage.

First round would be:

7@2
6@3
5@4

Lets say 7 upsets 2 and both 3 and 4 take care of business then the 2nd round looks like:

7@1
4@3

If 7 pulls a '19 Titans and 3 beats 4 then 3 has homefield in the Conference Championship.

Not bad actually. Sometimes teams get hot late after a piss poor start but fall just shy of the playoffs due to tiebreakers. With this setup, that 7th seed could potentially be the most dangerous team in the playoffs.

Im sure it played a part but i dont think a huge one.. Revenue from NFL playoff games is going to mainly come from playoff tickets sold and television - not sports gambling.

If they are going to change it, then make a wholesale change.

Top 8 teams get in by record. Top 2 teams choose who they play in round one.

That might happen once every decade or so but letís be honest, more often than not that 7 seed is gonna get throttled.

Chiefs hosting the Steelers this year? Would have been a bloodbath.

Yep. Zero percent chance that a dude named Duck leads that team to a playoff win.

Yeah - just how do the playoffs stack up with 7 teams this year?

BYE
1. Ravens

Wild Card

2. Chiefs 35
7. Steelers 7

3. Patriots 13
6. Titans 14

4. Texans 22
5. Bills 19

Which would lead to the same result. Yes, the risk is that the Chiefs would have sustained a major injury against the Steelers and that would change the overall outcome, but idk. I think a lot of the worry we have is through the lens of the 90's playoff losses and our losses with Alex Smith, where our QB would be called to win the game against a mediocre team - but Patrick is just going to deliver - often delivering before a game winning drive is necessary.

If the trade is that we keep Jones, Watkins, and get to load up at IOL and LB? Gosh, I don't know - it's almost worth it. Keeping that defense respectable puts us in dynasty potential. I'd still prefer we stick to the status quo, though.

This new format will benefit teams like the Chargers, Faders, and Donks- who won't be winning the division for a decade. They are average teams with average QB's, and average records. Not good enough to get a Wild Card, but now get a free pass to the show.

I don't like it. This is why you play the regular season.

I will say that if these changes make the difference financially for us to keep Jones, I’ll gladly take it.

If you were going to do that, make the 17th game a bye for the division winners and have the next 8 teams in each conference play each other to position them to play the division leaders the next week. You would still get that 17th week and have three weeks of playoffs before the Superbowl.

Exactly. Adds some intrigue. I think more often than not, the 7th seed will be a team with a late surge and/or getting some key player(s) back from injury. So one cant assume they will get throttled although THIS year that might have been the case.

If this happens, you’ll see so many more trades in the draft. In that new format, you can’t have 5 or 6 draft picks. With 2 extra games, you need to be accruing capitol for depth on your team bc you will have more injuries.

In a 16 game season, only 7 Chiefs played every game. Basically your back ups will be more important than ever.
