Football is a rough sport. Injuries occur in every game. What would a coach do when you have to play a regular season game where you have nothing to gain and afterwards, you have to play in the playoffs?.
It doesn’t matter how perfect your regular season record is in the playoffs. In the playoffs, everyone has a fresh start with the same chance to win the Superbowl. The Superbowl is the reward for a season’s worth of hardships. The prize that tells everyone that you’re the best team in the NFL.
What would a Professional Head Coach do? Play your backups of course.
