It would be by far the best weekend of the NFL calendar year fanwise.
It's hard to disagree with this. Letting four teams do nothing for a week is a waste of football. The only thing it is would water-down the "fighting for the top seed" thing but would put more emphasis on just winning your division since all division winners would have to play the first playoff week.
