NFL Pulls Game From Mexico Due To Field Conditions

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday that players from both teams were "strongly considering" not playing in this game if the National Football League didn't move the game from Estadio Azteca and Mexico City.

The NFL plans to release information on ticket reimbursement in the coming days.

The Los Angeles Rams will enjoy unexpected home comforts when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs. Deadly wildfires have ravaged several areas near the Rams' training complex in Thousand Oaks for the past week, and 12 people were killed in a mass shooting in the town last Wednesday night.

Azteca hosted the first regular-season game ever held outside the U.S.in 2005 when Arizona beat San Francisco.

The Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots played a game at Estadio Azteca last season, but Patriots head coach Bill Belichick complained about numerous logistics and conditions for the game afterward. The Rams and Chiefs are two Super Bowl contenders with MVP caliber players.

"When they went back this week and saw the condition of the playing surface, they were tremendously alarmed to the point where teams did not want to have to play a game on that surface", he said.

The Rams left for Colorado Springs on Monday to train at high altitude for a week before traveling to Mexico City, where the elevation is about 7,300 feet.

"If Monday night's game is played in Mexico City, a number of Rams and Chiefs players are now strongly considering not playing in that game on that messy surface, per sources".
