NFL to Widen the Playing Field?

As the NFL strives to make the game safer for players, the league has reportedly looked into widening the field to 195 feet, the same as the Canadian Football League (NFL fields measure 160 feet). The idea is that by providing more space, players will be more evenly spread across the field, which could help prevent serious head injuries.
