CHIEFS WANT TO EXPAND PLAYOFFS, ELIMINATE BYE WEEKS
Published March 3, 1995
A proposal submitted to the NFL by the Chiefs that would expand the NFL playoff pool from 12 to 16 teams will be discussed at the NFL owners meeting next week, according to this morning's ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Under the plan, none of the teams would receive bye weeks as the two top division winners in each conference do now. Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt concedes it has "only a remote chance of passing" (Len Pasquarelli, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/3).
