NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the league would not expand playoffs this season as had been discussed, reports USA Today. The league considered adding two or four teams to the current 12-team system in December, but the proposal created a lot of backlash.

There is a possibility that the idea would be revisited in the future, but not without careful consideration, Goodell said.

"The competition committee looked at some of the issues," said Goodell, who added that the league needs to discuss expanded playoffs with the players' union, too.

"Now, we have a little bit of work to do before we can advance it. It clearly won't be happening for this year if there was any doubt about that."
