Oakland Raiders to play a game against Houston Texans in Mexico City

Oakland Raiders to play a game against Houston Texans in Mexico City

The Oakland Raiders will play a regular-season game in Mexico City this year, marking the NFL's return to the country for the first time in 11 years.

The Raiders, who are having stadium issues in Oakland and applied to relocate to Los Angeles, will host the Houston Texans in Mexico, the Associated Press reported.

The schedule has not been set for the 2016 season. Both franchises are looking to make inroads in Mexico, as is the league as a whole, and Goodell is expected to announce the game at his Friday press conference, the AP reported.

ESPN.com first reported that the Texans-Raiders game would be played in Mexico City.
