New England Patriots players should prepare for a late-November trip to Mexico City.
“One official with knowledge of the NFL’s thinking said the game is expected to be held ‘somewhere around Thanksgiving,’ ” Reiss wrote, “while another relayed that the target is the ‘Sunday before Thanksgiving,’ which would be Nov. 19.”
The Raiders and Houston Texans played in Mexico City around the same time last year — Nov. 22 — though that game was played on a Monday night. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said during Super Bowl week this year’s Mexico game likely would be scheduled for a Sunday night.
Another trip to Estadio Azteca likely isn’t on many Raiders fans’ minds right now, however, as NFL owners are preparing to vote on whether the franchise will be moved from Oakland to Las Vegas.
