    Money. Kinda hard to dispute the "NFL are slave owners" narrative when they try to do crap like this.

  • Money. The league can, presumably, earn more money through TV rights deals (the networks can sell more ads) through a 17-game season than through a 16-game season. TV rights revenues are the league's primary source of money.

    To generate more money for the owners.

    Maybe more money, but that is a question for you to ask them, and not strangers on Yahoo Answers, how will we know why they want to extend the season. And plus if they extend it y 2 more games, how will they work the schedule as diversion rivals play each other 2 times, 1 at each team's stadium. Plus how all they work the schedule for when teams play other teams not in the same diversion or even conference? NFL teams play 16 games, and all teams somewhere in their schedule as a bye week., where some teams have their bye week earlier then another team does.
