Goodell confirms Nov. 21 for Texans-Raiders game in Mexico
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed Friday that the Raiders would play the Texans in Mexico City on Nov. 21, the first regular season game in Mexico since 2001.
Houston is very interested in the Mexican market, as are the Raiders, who are dealing with stadium issues in Oakland.
The last regular-season NFL game in Mexico was in 2005, when 103,000 fans watched Arizona and San Francisco at Azteca Stadium. The NFL also has played seven preseason games there, none since 2001.
