It looks like the players have seen enough.
Next week's Monday Night Football matchup is supposed to be taking place in Mexico City, however recent reports suggest that the field is in no condition for a game to take place. Images showed the field looking poorly maintained, which could be a major injury risk to players of both teams.
If Monday night’s game is played in Mexico City, a number of Rams and Chiefs players are now strongly considering not playing in that game on that messy surface, per sources. “It’s not fair to risk our health,” one prominent player said today.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 13, 2018
The NFL needs to relocate this game, as it's a MONSTER contest set to feature two of the top teams in the league.
This could be a sneak peek at a potential Super Bowl matchup, but if players from both sides don't want to take part due to field conditions, then that is a huge problem.
Re CHIEFS-RAMS Mexico City game, it's worth noting that NFL rules say the home team in the international series (in this case, the Rams) has to have its home stadium available in the event the game has to be moved, for whatever reason.— Sam Farmer (@LATimesfarmer) November 13, 2018
If the field in Mexico City isn't properly maintained and in good enough condition for players to feel comfortable, then relocating may be the only choice the league has.
Because the game is scheduled as a home game for the Rams, they should move the game to Los Angeles.
