BACK FOR THIRDS I: The Patriots-Raiders game will be the 30th regular-season NFL game played outside of the U.S. The first was in Mexico City in 2005, when the Cardinals hosted the 49ers. Prior to today, one other game was also played in Mexico City, a Raiders victory over the Texans last year. Prior to today there have been 21 games in London, two in Mexico City and six in Toronto.
BACK FOR THIRDS II: This will the Patriots' third international regular-season game; the previous two were in London. They beat the Bucs, 35-7, on Oct. 25, 2009, and beat the Rams, 45-7, on Oct. 28, 2012. Both games were played at Wembley Stadium.
WORLD TRAVELERS: The Pats have played four international preseason games, including one in Mexico City:
-- Lost to the Lions, 22-9, in Montreal in 1969
-- Lost to the Steelers, 30-14, in Montreal in 1990
-- Lost to the Browns (then coached by Bill Belichick), 12-9, in Toronto in 1993
-- Beat the Cowboys, 21-3, in Mexico City in 1998
WHAT TO LOOK FOR
-- The Patriots can set a franchise record for consecutive road wins with a victory. They are riding a 12-game road winning streak, which tied the team record set from 2006-08. That total is second-best in NFL history, behind the 49ers' 18 road wins in a row from 1988-90.
-- If Stephen Gostkowski scores eight points today, he will move into the top 20 in NFL history in points scored.
