NEW YORK (AFP) — National Football League (NFL) playoff teams could compete for a championship next January in a playoff bubble to better protect players from COVID-19, NFL vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said Wednesday.

Vincent said on a conference call that New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton suggested a post-season bubble in the latest competition committee call, a move that would need backing from the NFL Players Association also.

“All things are on the table,” said Vincent, who said the NFL used the term “secure environment” rather than “bubble” much the way the NBA has adopted “campus” to describe its quarantine environment.
