NFL Announces Patriots Will Play Raiders In Mexico In 2017

NFL Announces Patriots Will Play Raiders In Mexico In 2017

As NFL.com noted in its release, the exact date and time of the game will be released when the NFL schedule is announced this offseason.

The Patriots are the crown jewel of the Raiders' 2017 home slate, and giving that game to Mexico City is a disappointing, yet expected turn for Oakland Raiders fans hoping to welcome Tom Brady to the Black Hole.

"NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that the Patriots and Raiders will play a game next season in Mexico".

"We haven't made a determination about Las Vegas as an National Football League market", Goodell said in a press conference. The Raiders played the Texans in Mexico City in 2016.

On the November 21 edition of "Monday Night Football", the Raiders beat the Texans, 27-20, in Mexico City. Also, a group led by Raiders legend Ronnie Lott is working to keep the team in the East Bay.

"I don't see any ownership position of a team for a casino", he said. Owner Mark Davis steadfastly has maintained he plans to relocate the franchise, but still needs to complete stadium funding with the exit of potential investor Sheldon Adelson this week.

"My goal would be similar to the United Kingdom, where we're able to go back at least once a year and create our piece of the Mexico City sporting calendar".

A total of eight National Football League games have been played in Mexico City, and only two were regular-season games.

"The largest crowd the Patriots have played in front of was in Mexico City in 1998", said Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. "That's imperative for us, that the game our fans are seeing on the field doesn't have undue influence".

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday the league was pleased with the results of last year's Mexico City trip and meant to make a multi-year commitment to playing there.

"I've always enjoyed it".
