    every NFL team is wearing a green sticker on the back of their helmet this week that says "futbol americano" (I think). talk about shameless pandering. :D

    Yes but they are wearing that because in the US is the week or the month of the Hispanic heritage.

    I don't know whats worse: Being delegated to watch a game between the 49ers and Cardinals, or being delegated to play in Mexico. :D

    Ok, I kid. I kid. If the game is sold out,more revenue for the outrageeoouus Americans :cool:

    Mexico is already in the NFL history

    The two games with more attendance in the NFL were in Mexico:

    1. (1994) Dallas vs Oilers: 112,376
    2. (1998) Dallas vs Patriots: 106,424

    And today is the first season game outside the US.

    I love the barbed wire and moat surrounding the field.

    Go Brandon Lloyd...

    Holy crap they had over 103,000 people there. From what I read that's over 60,000 more people than they had at the meeting of the same two teams last year in Arizona.

    I think the NFL didn't want to take a home game away from a playoff contender. I doubt that anybody cares that Arizona is losing a home game...
