    Texans getting a game in Mexico City without giving up a home game in Houston is a major Coup for McNair. That is a win-win.

    This is a good deal all around.

    Hope the Texans never play a game in London.

    Texans could snatch some Mexican-based Cowboy fans.

    So Oakland gets the home-game shaft?

    Excellent.

    haha yeah that's what I was thinking. I like that they didn't throw us in London. This won't be a long flight for the team.

    8 home
    7 road
    1 neutral(Mexico city)

    People are thinking the neutral will be more of a Texans home game.

    Makes sense for the raiders to give up a home game. They have to tarp off their stadium to 53000 seats just so they can sell out. Plus, they might be lame duck in Oakland now.

    I think beginning in 2017 season, whoever host the Super Bowl will be required to give up a home game and play somewhere outside the US.

    We probably shouldn't let them know that the Texans used to play Santa Anna's Theme when the visiting team was introduced.
