The Los Angeles Rams will be hosting the Kansas City Chiefs next season in Mexico City.
For the third season in a row, the Los Angeles Rams will see one of their home games go international after it was announced on Wednesday that Sean McVay‘s team will actually be hosting the Kansas City Chiefs on the road, only this time in Mexico City instead of London. Over the last two years, the Rams have participated in one of the games in London, and even though the atmosphere will be a little different for this game against the Chiefs, this should still end up being a blast for McVay and company playing in front of a passionate fan base in Mexico City.
Originally, Mexico City was supposed to see an epic AFC battle this season between the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders, but unfortunately the defending champions had little trouble coming through with an easy 33-8 win. But hopefully when it comes to next season’s game between the Rams and Chiefs, Mexico City fans will be able to enjoy a much closer matchup, although it would be nice to still see Los Angeles come up on the winning end.
Unlike the Raiders, the Rams were able to earn a trip to the playoffs this season thanks to McVay making a serious impact during his first season as head coach, and one can only imagine what could be in store for year two from the offensive mastermind. Assuming all goes well in the offseason, Los Angeles should be able to pick right up where they left off in 2018 by being one of the teams to beat in the NFC once again while hopefully advancing further than the Wild Card Round if they do in fact earn another trip to the postseason.
As for the Chiefs, this team has been quite the popular topic of discussion leading up to the Super Bowl after their decision to trade Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins to begin the Patrick Mahomes II era earlier than expected. So with this recent news, Mexico City should be in for quite a treat by seeing two young quarterbacks in Mahomes and Jared Goff squaring off against each other next season in game between two teams that went to the playoffs, which the fans deserve.
