The National Football League has made a decision on its Mexico City game. Instead of playing in Mexico, the game is going to be played in Los Angeles, California.

Players on both teams have been threatening to boycott the game because of its field conditions. The field was messed up with a concert recently.

Earlier on Tuesday, it was being mentioned that the game would either be played in Los Angeles or Mexico City. They even considered postponing it all together.

According to NBC Sports’ Peter King, the NFL sent teams to do “surgery” on the field on Monday and Tuesday. With the game being switched, the teams — who were sent to Mexico — will not have to do the “surgery” now.

The field has not held up due to soccer matches and concerts at the venue.

With the Rams hosting the game, they will not have to relocate its employees — who are also dealing with wildfires in the state. Los Angeles was supposed to practice in Colorado Springs, Colorado for the week to prepare for the move to Mexico City.

The Chiefs had planned to fly into Mexico City on Sunday.

Los Angeles will now have back-to-back home games. They also defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 36-31, on Sunday.

Both teams come into the meeting with 9-1 records. The Rams after on a one-game win streak after having its eight-game win streak snapped by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, November 4th.

The Chiefs have won four straight games since their only loss of the season. They were defeated 43-40 by the New England Patriots on Sunday, October 14th.

The NFL had hoped to play its third Mexico City game with these two teams. Now, it’s going to have to wait.

Last year, the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders played in the 2017 game. The NFL started its Mexico City series in 2016.
