What do we expect from Monday Night in Mexico?

This Monday Night Football promises some surprises with the offensive tactics of Kyle Shanahan and Kliff Kingsbury. Mexicans will be able to see live in action these Mexicans will be able to see quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo and Kyler Murray, the latter who has a contract until the 2023 season.

This will be the second time that both teams meet in Mexican territory since in October 2005 the result was in favor of the Cardinals 31-14 against the 49ers. The Colossus of Santa Úrsula received in 2016 the Oakland Raiders vs. Houston Texans and in 2019 to Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers.

Some time ago Roger Goodell, commissioner of the NFL, announced the news: “The NFL will return to the Azteca Stadium for the 2022 season. We will definitely be back in November of this year,” he explained.
