NFL Players Are Considering Sitting Out Of Major Week 11 Game

The Sunday Seven- 7 Key Opta facts for NFL Week 10

This primetime game was set to kick off in Mexico City, but poor field conditions forced its relocation to Los Angeles, giving the Rams a healthy home field advantage.

The league made the decision later Tuesday to move the game, after consulting with the NFL Players Association, inspecting the field and meeting with independent experts.

It's not often that the NFL's worldwide games end up being marquee matchups, but in this case, Mexico City was set to host two of the league's elite in a crucial cross-conference game.

The game will now be played at the Rams' home, Los Angeles Coliseum.

The NFL officially announced that the Monday's long-awaited game of the year between these two teams has been moved back to Los Angeles. But another source said he thinks moving the game to Los Angeles is still an option that will be decided this week. He also expressed disappointment for the fans of Mexico while stating the the team and the league looked forward to the experience of playing in Mexico City. "Until very recently, we had no major concerns".

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, some players on both teams are "strongly considering" sitting out the game if it's played at Stadium Azteca.

The matchup between the Rams and Chiefs, both of whom have a 9-1 record and lead their respective divisions, is considered one of the marquee games of the upcoming week's National Football League schedule.

The Rams traveled to Colorado Springs on Monday, intending to spend their week of practice in high altitudes to prepare for Mexico City's conditions.

Chiefs right tackle Mitchell Schwartz, who is seven snaps away from having played 7,000 consecutive snaps since the start of his professional career, gave the impression that all road games are the same from a player's perspective. The NFL games played in London created a turf controversy of their own, with Spurs and Manchester City playing a Premier League soccer game at Wembley just a day after Philadelphia's win over Jacksonville in October.
