The NFL is having major concerns on whether or not the Monday Night Football game between the Chiefs and Rams in Mexico City will be postponed or moved to a different location. The reason? Field conditions are so poor.
Discussions continue about whether Monday night’s Chiefs-Rams game will be played in Mexico City, LA or postponed, per sources. NFL determined to play it Monday night in Mexico City, but the field is “a mess” and might not be safe for players. It’s a significant concern.

The NFL said:
“We are working closely with the field manager at Azteca Stadium and others to ensure that we have an NFL-quality surface for our game, and we are looking forward to kicking off in Mexico City on Monday night,” said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.
Significant discussions are underway about whether the game will be played in Mexico City, Los Angeles or postponed, according to sources, and a decision is expected this week.”
Look at how bad that field looks.
