    Superbowl 51 Champs Patriots to play in Mexico vs Oakland?! Raiders

    NFL returns to Mexico: Oakland to host New England in Mexico City in 2017

    Building off the tremendous success of the 2016 game in Mexico, the NFL will return to Mexico City in 2017 when the Oakland Raiders host the New England Patriots at Estadio Azteca, NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL announced today at his press conference in Houston in advance of Super Bowl LI.
    Interesting pick to head to Mexico.......

    Conspiracy Theory below:

    -Goodell hates Tom Brady/Patriots.
    -Kraft + Bill + Tom all "friends" with Trump

    Did he do it on purpose? Or this is to promote the NFL so he's happy with the best team going there?

    It's pretty normal compared to past history, and the types of teams that play abroad. The Patriots have already played in London a few times, and are more than happy to travel anywhere provided they are the road team and don't give up a home game. The NFL is happy to put the Patriots in spotlight games for obv reasons, and the Pats are happy to do it. Oakland's a lame duck in their own home field for the next few years, and Mexico ain't even that far for them to travel, so its a plus for them too.
