INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NFL's competition committee is unlikely to make major changes to the replay system or playoffs this year.
New York Giants owner John Mara told The Associated Press after Wednesday's committee meeting that more discussion is needed about moving replay reviews to a centralized location. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said there wasn't enough support on the committee to change the system in time for the 2014 season.
Mara, a longtime critic of playoff expansion, acknowledged he was willing to listen to the option of adding one wild-card team in each conference but expressed concern about ''watering down'' the postseason.
No formal votes will be held during this week's meetings in Indianapolis, where teams are convening for the start of the annual scouting combine.
