Packers won't play an worldwide game in 2019

NFC champion Los Angeles Rams will face the Cincinnati Bengals

While the CFL may be looking at playing games in Mexico as early as this season, the NFL has scheduled another contest in Mexico City for 2019, the league announced Monday.

The Los Angeles Rams, who will play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 53, will host a London game for the fourth time when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals.

London's calling for four games and Mexico City will get another shot to host a Kansas City-Los Angeles showdown.

The Bengals first played in London in the 2016 season, hosting the Washington Redskins at Wembley Stadium.


The Steelers last played internationally in 2013, when the Vikings defeated them, 34-27, at Wembley Stadium in London. One of those include the Chiefs vs. the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico.

Final details of when these games will be scheduled during the season will come later when the National Football League announces the official schedules for the 2019 regular season.

Chiefs 23-year-old quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who threw an NFL-best 50 touchdowns this past season, almost put Kansas City into the Super Bowl for the first time since 1970 in a 37-31 over-time playoff loss Sunday to New England.

The Packers have a large fanbase in the United Kingdom and elsewhere overseas, but the franchise has long maintained they'd never give up a home game to play in London or Mexico.
