For a second consecutive season, the Oakland Raiders will head south of the U.S. border for a "home" game. This time, they'll be "hosting" the New England Patriots.

At his Super Bowl LI press conference Wednesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed that the Patriots and Raiders will play a regular-season game in Mexico City next season. Back in mid-December, ESPN's John Sutcliffe first reported the news. As NFL.com noted in its release, the exact date and time of the game will be released when the NFL schedule is announced this offseason.

"The Raiders are excited to return to Estadio Azteca and represent the National Football League once again on an international stage," said Raiders owner Mark Davis, per NFL.com. "We enjoyed tremendous support from the Raider Nation in Mexico in 2016 and look forward to experiencing that great passion again this year."

On the Nov. 21 edition of "Monday Night Football," the Raiders beat the Texans, 27-20, in Mexico City.

Afterward, much of the attention was centered on the officiating blunders that screwed over the Texans and the laser pointers that were shined in Brock Osweiler's eyes.
