The NFL is examining the possibility of having playoff games in a few bubbles and the cities of Los Angeles and Dallas are among the venues being considered.
According to The Athletic, the league continues to analyze its options. It could thus organize its post-season matches in bubbles from the round of division duels, ie the second round. For logistical reasons, the NFL has ruled out doing this during the regular season.
The Cowboys ‘home, AT&T Stadium, as well as the Chargers and Rams’ home, SoFi Stadium, have reportedly caught the attention of the Goodell Circuit officials due to nearby hotels and the warmer climate in their respective regions. However, the Players’ Association will have to approve this plan if it is actually put forward by the NFL.
The latter would like to take inspiration from major league baseball, which began its playoff phase with matches presented in the stadiums of higher ranked clubs. However, since the divisional playoffs, games have been played in neutral venues, namely San Diego and Los Angeles for the American League, as well as Houston and Arlington for the National League. The World Series is scheduled for the Texas Rangers’ stadium, Globe Life Field.
