NEW YORK (AP)

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the league made a mistake in how it handled ticket sales for the playoffs that led to teams struggling to sellout postseason games.

Goodell spoke during his state of the league address on Friday. He says the league should not have been in the position of playoff games having trouble selling out.

The Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers all had problems. Each team was given extensions to sell out their home games, and in each case, corporations had to step up to buy blocks of the remaining tickets. Meijer in Indianapolis, Associated Bank in Green Bay and P&G in Cincinnati all purchased the ticket and many were distributed to military families and veterans.
