The playing surface at Azteca Stadium is "a mess" and the safety of the players is a significant enough concern that the league is considering a venue change, ESPN reported Tuesday.
"We are working closely with the field manager at Azteca Stadium and others to ensure that we have an NFL-quality surface for our game, and we are looking forward to kicking off in Mexico City on Monday night," said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.
Two recent events apparently damaged the hybrid playing surface, a combination of grass and synthetic filler. The stadium hosted a large music concert on Nov. 7 and a soccer match on Saturday.
The Chiefs and Rams share the best record in the NFL at 9-1.
