Pats To Play In Mexico In 2017 [VIDEO]
Roger Goodell announced as part of his press conference with the media on Wednesday afternoon that the New England Patriots will be playing in Mexico City in the upcoming 2017 season.
The game had been a reported possibility for the Pats since the regular season match-up between the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders. The match-up will see New England travel south of the border to face the Raiders, which will be a home game for the AFC West side. No date has been set yet for the contest.

Among other topics covered by Goodell in the press conference was that he felt that there was more than enough evidence to support the NFL's 'deflategate' findings against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. He also said that he is not avoiding attending games in New England and would head to Gillette Stadium if offered an invitation in the future.

"If I'm invited to Foxboro, I'll come," said Goodell when addressing the question from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe.
Goodell also addressed the possibility of a team relocating to Las Vegas and said the league is "very committed" to Thursday night football in the future.
