Wallyhorse Posted August 1, 2020 Share Posted August 1, 2020 This may be necessary:Just wrote a full blog post noting why the NFL may need to do an emergency realignment for 2020 only that would have teams groups to where they are close to each other and to have either four divisions of eight playing a 14-game schedule (all games within the same division playing everyone twice) or 16 games where its the traditional eight divisions of four (four divisions per conference) where you play teams in your own division four times and teams in the other conference's same regional division once. The latter format would allow for eight "bubble cities" of four teams each should such be necessary. This is how I would do the divisions if such a realignment was necessary doing eight divisions of four and two conferences (potential "bubble cities" are in parentheses): AFC East (East Rutherford) Patriots Giants Jets Bills AFC North (Indianapolis) Steelers Browns Bengals Colts AFC South (Atlanta) Falcons Jaguars Dolphins Buccaneers AFC West (Santa Clara) Chiefs Broncos Seahawks 49ers NFC East (Philadelphia) Eagles Ravens Washington FC Panthers NFC North (Chicago) Bears Vikings Packers Lions NFC South (New Orleans) Titans Saints Cowboys Texans NFC West (Las Vegas) Raiders Rams Chargers Cardinals Yes, you lose some traditional rivalry games but this is all about making sure there is a season in the safest way possible.
