The Oakland Raiders will play in Mexico City next season

The Oakland Raiders will play in Mexico City next season

Just a couple of years removed from playing the Miami Dolphins in London, the Oakland Raiders will play internationally again. 

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced Friday that the Raiders will play the Houston Texans in Mexico Coty on Nov. 21. 

As was reported in our premium forum, the Raiders will lose a home game as they will host the Texans. 

“The Raiders are honored to once again represent the National Football League in its International Series,” said Raiders Owner Mark Davis. “The Raiders are truly a global brand and we look forward to visiting the loyal and passionate members of the Raider Nation in Mexico.”

Mexico City hasn't hosted a game since over 100,000 fans saw the San Francisco 49er's beat the Arizona Cardinals in October of 2005.
