Chiefs-Rams players may refuse to play at Estadio Azteca

NFL Set On Mexico City Game Despite Poor Field Conditions

One would hope they could figure out a solution as this is a Monday Night game which no fan will want to miss, arguably the league's best MNF matchup of the past several decades, rivaled only by the 10-1 Giants and Niners facing off in 1990.

"We have worked extensively with our partners at Estadio Azteca for months in preparation for this game", NFL Executive Vice President of International Mark Waller said in a statement.

The Week 11 match-up between the Rams and the Chiefs is the latest regular season game between two one-loss teams since 1990.

Two recent events apparently damaged the hybrid playing surface, a combination of grass and synthetic filler.

Stephen Hawking’s wheelchair sells at charity auction
One of his most famous works was his landmark book a " A Brief History of Time ", which sold more than 10 million copies. It included items belonging to Hawking, as well as others linked to Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein .

In a news release, the league said it determined that the recently re-sodded field at Mexico City's historic stadium "does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency, and will not meet those standards by next Monday".

Multiple players on the Rams and Chiefs had been "strongly considering" not playing due to the horrid condition of the field, ESPN.com reported, citing sources. The team will return to Los Angeles on Saturday.

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

The Rams left for Colorado Springs on Monday to train at high altitude for a week before traveling to Mexico City, where the elevation is about 7,300 feet. The stadium has hosted several National Football League exhibitions, and the Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans and New England Patriots all played regular-season games there over the past two seasons. Kansas City improved to 9-1 with a 26-14 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
