Step 1: "Introduction Plan"

Claim: The way the NFL playoff bracket is setup is a bad way and should be changed because now the level of difficulty in the divisions are different from each other and it takes away opportunities of teams with higher game records to get into the playoffs allows other teams with a lower record to get into the playoffs.


Audience: National Football League Committee and those who watch the NFL games.


Step 2: "Tips on researching and drafting a Background section"

I will be showing how the NFL playoff bracket is today and why it is flawed and needs to be changed through a few examples of teams with good records that didn't make the playoffs. Also, I will give my idea of a much better way of how the NFL playoff bracket should be setup.
