The NFL playoffs traditionally take place over the course of four weekends, but they could be changing this season.
The league already expanded to seven playoff teams last season compared to the previous number of six. That meant an extra wild-card game for each conference was played, giving us a total of six games on the first weekend of the playoffs. Under the previous format, only four games took place in the wild-card round.
This postseason, one of the wild-card playoff games could take place on a Monday. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says there would be two Saturday games, three Sunday games, and a Monday game if such a change were made.
