[Kansas City.com] Lamar Hunt’s quest to expand the NFL playoff field by two teams will live to see another day.
How many more days is another matter. Before the end of the league meetings Wednesday, NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue postponed a vote on the Chiefs’ proposal to expand the playoff field in each conference from six to seven teams.
The issue will go back for further study and could come to a vote at the league’s May meetings.
“He wanted more time to focus on it and have the television people look at it because it certainly would have implications for TV whether it goes on the networks or the NFL Network,” Chiefs president/general manager Carl Peterson said.
