Report: Mexico will host an NFL game in 2016

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that when the NFL extends its International Series this week, expect the new slate to include a game in Mexico City in 2016, according to league sources.

When the extension of the series is finalized, expect it to be a long-term one.

Per Rapoport, the NFL considered international expansion in Mexico and Germany. They landed on Mexico given the success and popularity when the 49ers and Cardinals squared off at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City in 2005.
