NFL: League wants a return to Mexico

Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The NFL is still eyeing a return to Mexico.

Arizona and San Francisco played the NFL’s first regular-season game outside the United States in Mexico in 2005, followed two years later by a game in London between Miami and the New York Giants.
More trips to London have followed. On Friday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Mexico remains on the league’s radar screen, noting that “it’s good for the NFL.”
Goodell also says the NFL isn’t choosing London over Mexico. He’d like to see games played in both cities, and later in his state-of-the-NFL session Friday, also called Japan and the Far East “an important market” for the league.
