The NFL’s competition committee expects to submit a proposal for a 16-team playoff field in the event games are lost during the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports, citing league sources. They expect to present a resolution to team owners shortly. A 16-team field would consist of the four division winners and four wild-card teams from each conference.
The NBA and National Basketball Players Association have continued to discuss a likely postseason play-in tournament for 2020-21 that would potentially provide the league with another revenue stream; sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe. In the reportedly proposed format, the final two playoff berths in each conference would be up for grabs. The seventh- and eighth-placed teams would compete first to determine who will proceed to the playoffs as the true No. 7 seed. The loser would then face the winner of a matchup between the ninth- and 10th-placed sides, with the eventual victor emerging as the true 8-seed.
