Should the NFL follow the Premier League

The final weekend of the NFL regular season is here and there are still a bunch of things to figure out, like who is going to win the NFC East, the wildcard spots in the AFC, and seeding. During the final Sunday of the season, games will kickoff at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Some teams might know that their games means nothing as they take the field because of earlier results.

In know this is going to sound euro centric, but maybe the NFL should look at changing the way that they do the final weekend of the season. Instead of having three different start times maybe they should have all of the games start at the same time, like they do in the Barclays Premier League. During the final day of the Premier League season all of the games start at 4 p.m. . This assures no funny business between the clubs. This makes for fun for all of the fans at the stadiums. All of them are on the cell phones and have radios in their ears to make sure they know what is going on at other sites around the league. At one point your team could be in at another point with results going the other they could be at. But at the end of all of the games there is no more waiting.

Sure the final weekend of the NFL season will be great, cause it always is, but starting every game at 4 p.m. would make for classic drama.
