(Having said that, I'm not for it. Just saying it can be done without overlapping or doing anything they don't already do during the regular season.)
Yeah you could maybe add days. But then it adds other headaches. When the season comes down to one game, you don't want a round 2 Saturday game with one team that played on Saturday vs one who played way late on Monday.
So you'd almost have to set it up so the Monday winners played each other the following week. And that in itself could get tricky to juggle when you're dealing with 4 time zones.
Plus I'm not sure two late games on Monday Night would bring the kind of ratings the NFL is accustomed to for playoff games.
