Raiders lose yet another home game in consecutive years to play in freaking Mexico City. Against the Pats too, which will have massive implications on the AFC playoff race. Frustrating to say the least but I get why the NFL is doing it.

Raiders lose another home game.. and if these teams are as good as 2016, this could be for the #1 seed and we have to play it on neutral ground instead of Oakland. So lame.

Hope we get a new stadium soon so they stop taking our home games.

The NFL making teams play away from home is getting ridiculous.... I mean the raiders don't even have a home anymore but still.

They are having the Pats play in Mexico and making the Raiders pay for it, I am ok with this.

Yeah nobody should be upset about a laser since this was suppose to be a home game for us. We should have some kind of advantage Laughing

Could be some sort of arrangement to approve whatever relocation the Raiders decide to go with?

I saw the game this past season... Raiders should feel at home in Mexico. That stadium was overwhelmingly silver and black. Heck, I'd even say the Raiders have an unfair advantage there, judging by how the Raider fans in Mexico treated/affected the visiting team (trying to shine lasers in the Texans player's eyes).

Raiders fans got screwed out of a homegame, but the team really didn't. They are popular down there. And Brady and Belichick won't be popular there do to an affiliation with a certain politician.

Having to travel to a different country rather than staying in your home city for a HOME game doesn't count as getting screwed?

Yes this is a road game for both teams any way you look at it. It's not a home game for the Raiders just cause we have more fans there.

Really NFL? You send these two teams to the most historic city in the Americas?
