(AP) The NFL won't be adding playoff teams for 2013, and the champions of last season, the Baltimore Ravens, could open on the road because of a conflict with the Orioles.


As the owners meetings opened Monday, scheduling was a main topic.


Traditionally, the season has opened with the Super Bowl winners playing host on the Thursday night after Labor Day.


The Ravens don't have that option unless baseball's Orioles, who share parking lots at Camden Yards with the Ravens' M&T Bank Stadium, will move their night game Sept. 5 to the afternoon.


So far, there's been no progress, and Sept. 4 is not an option because it's the first night of Rosh Hashanah, Commissioner Roger Goodell says.


Goodell also says the playoffs will not expand this season, but it will be discussed for the future.
