In its efforts to reach out to fans worldwide, the NFL is holding games outside of the United States. The most recent was on November 19 when the New England Patriots played the Oakland Raiders at Estadio Azteca in Mexico. The Pats dominated the Raiders, winning 33-8.

The game in Mexico was an excellent outing for the Patriots, though head coach Bill Belichick is in no rush to return. Belichick made this clear during an interview with WEEI-FM. The multiple-time champion coach said the trip "took a lot out of us." Belichick shared that the Patriots organization spent so much energy because of all the logistics involved, plus other essential factors (altitude, hydration, food, training, etc.) they had to consider.

Belichick praised his players for the way they dealt with all the difficulties in front of them during their stay in Mexico. Following this, the 65-year-old made a comment that did not sit well with the people of Mexico saying, "I think we're fortunate there was no volcano eruptions or earthquakes, or anything else while we were down there," He added that there were two NFL teams in a place where he did not know if the "geological plates" were stable.

Different opinion

Whether or not Bill Belichick is looking to come back to Mexico anytime soon, Tom Brady is eager to visit again. After beating the Raiders, the franchise quarterback of the Patriots raved about the experience playing the game in the country.

Brady vowed to return to Mexico and called the opportunity to play there a "privilege."

Brady gave a splendid performance for Belichick and the Patriots in Mexico. In the victory over the Raiders, the 40-year-old completed 30-of-37 spectacular pass attempts for 339 yards and three touchdowns.

Extend the streak

Bill Belichick can now focus solely on the upcoming games with the Patriots, already back in the United States.

The Patriots resume action on November 26 when they host the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium, for their Week 12 contest. The Pats, who are leading the AFC East with an 8-2 record, are hoping to extend their winning streak which currently stands at six games. They have not lost since October 1 when Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers beat them, 33-30.

When the home game concludes, Belichick and the Patriots will get ready for a road trip. The Buffalo Bills, Dolphins, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are the teams they are going to visit in that stretch.
