Raiders To Play The Patriots In Mexico City
The Raiders will play their second straight regular-season game in Mexico City after they defeated the Houston Texans 27-20 on Nov. 21, 2016 in the first-ever Monday Night Football game played outside of the United States. The Patriots will play their first-ever regular-season game in Mexico.
Their trip to Mexico in 2017 means the Raiders will have only seven regular-season home games for the second consecutive season.
The NFL also announced on April 20 that the Raiders would play at the Philadelphia Eagles on Christmas Day on Monday Night Night Football at 5:30 p.m. (Pacific)
