GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said today at his annual State of the Game news conference that the
league is looking into a new way of seeding playoff teams.
In response to a question about teams that had already qualified
for the playoffs resting players during late-season games, Goodell
said the league needs to address the issue. At one point he brought
up the possibility of a wild card team getting a higher seed than a
divisional winner if the wild card team has the better record.
The commissioner also used the news conference to announce that
the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers will meet in London's
Wembley Stadium on October 26th.
When asked about recent comments from Pennsylvania Senator Arlen
Specter regarding his handling of the "spygate" controversy
earlier in the season, Goodell said his actions were decisive,
unprecedented and that they sent a strong message to every NFL team
that cheating won't be tolerated.
