Goodell Would Like Games in Mexico, England

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Commissioner Roger Goodell would like to see the NFL playing another regular season game in Mexico.

Goodell said at a news conference Friday that the league has a strategy to make the game “more successful on a global basis.” The Rams and Patriots will play in London next season as part of that approach.

Asked about playing games in Latin America, Goodell said there’s a great deal of interest there and he would like to get back to playing a regular season game in Mexico. He said it’s “something we’d like to get done sooner than later.”

Goodell said there are current discussions about setting up another game in Mexico.

The NFL Players Association has concerns about playing games in London and how the travel will affect players.
