    The NFL is considering changing the postseason so seeding would be based on records rather than division titles.

    That won't avoid instances like the one last season when Cleveland missed the playoffs and Tennessee made it by beating Indianapolis backups. But competition committee members agreed Thursday that changing the seeding guidelines would result in fewer such situations.

    Committee co-chairman Rich McKay, the Atlanta Falcons' president, said some clubs had indicated support for the changes.

    Makes sense to me, IMO...

    The worst record a team could conceivably have and still win their division is 3-13.

    Unlikely, indeed, but the chance a team with a losing record could make the playoffs sucks!!
