Soccer games and concerts have left the field a mess.

"We have worked extensively with our partners at Estadio Azteca for months in preparation for this game", Mark Waller, NFL executive vice president of worldwide, said in a statement.

This single game between the Rams and Chiefs is perhaps the most anticipated game of the entire regular season among National Football League fans given that it pits two likely Super Bowl contenders against each other in a preview of sorts. Because of that, the Rams have kept the L.A. Coliseum available.

The NFL has played regular season games in Mexico City in each of the past two seasons.

Moving the game from Mexico City's Estadio Azteca to Los Angeles remains an option.

Meanwhile the Rams have more weapons than most other teams with Brandin Cooks as the deep threat, Robert Woods as the dependable wideout and Todd Gurley as the offensive cornerstone-an MVP candidate who is undoubtedly the best running back in the game.

Other pilots have also claimed to have spotted the "bright lights", though they remained unsure of the nature of the object. Amy Lieu is a news editor and reporter for Fox News. "It was a bright light and then just disappeared at very high speed ".


Two recent events apparently damaged the hybrid playing surface, a combination of grass and synthetic filler. "Until very recently, we had no major concerns". Cruz Azul, the Liga MX soccer club that shares the stadium with Club America, played a tournament game on the field Saturday in noticeably poor conditions.

As part of the NFL's global series, the home team must keep the date open at its stadium in case of an emergency.

Azteca also hosted a regular season game on October 2, 2005, when the Arizona Cardinals defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-14.

One source said he still expects the game will be played there.

The Rams traveled to Colorado Springs on Monday, intending to spend their week of practice in high altitudes to prepare for Mexico City's conditions.
