The National Football League will look at this year's preseason games and study them to see what can be improved in hopes of offering a better product in the future, reports NFL.com.

The league has said that he would consider an 18-game regular season schedule, and have looked at different formats to split the regular season and preseason games.  A combination of 18-and-2, 16-and-2 or 17-and-3 are possibilities.

According to the report, the league will also look at how much starters play, how the lineups are configured and fan reaction, particularly with the fourth and final preseason game. The third preseason game is usually the "dress rehearsal" for most teams, when teams play their starters for the majority of the game.

More from NFL.com:

In addition, the NFL has discussed -- and will continue to discuss -- the possibility of lowering preseason ticket prices across the board. One team can't just drop prices; it would have to be a league-induced change. And the NFL can't impose it unilaterally; owners would have to vote on the proposed change at an owners' meeting.
