(Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)The much-anticipated Week 11 Monday Night Football matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs will not be played as scheduled in Mexico City.Originally slated to be played at Estadio Azteca, the game has been moved to the LA Coliseum. The reason for the change is the poor field conditions at the Mexican venue.Reports from earlier today indicated that some players were considering boycotting the game if they had to play on the shoddy grass surface.Unreal. Here’s the field in Mexico pic.twitter.com/DFPaXKfB2r— Scott Zolak (@scottzolak) November 13, 2018Since the Rams were going to give up a home game by agreeing to play in Mexico City, they get to host the contest after it was moved. That might seem like a huge disadvantage for the Chiefs, but its not like the Rams have a major home field advantage.Both teams enter the game with 9-1 records and the inside track at the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences.Monday night’s Chiefs-Rams game now is being moved from Mexico City to Los Angeles due to poor field conditions in Estadio Azteca, per sources.Back to LA for the Rams, who have been training for altitude in Colorado Springs.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 13, 2018Wherever this game is played, it will be a matchup of two explosive offenses led by young, star quarterbacks and coached by innovative head coaches. This is as good of a late-season showdown as you’re going to get in the NFL.In fact, it might even be a potential Super Bowl preview.last_img read more
