The Chiefs and Chargers, AFC West division rivals, will each make their Mexico debuts after both reached the playoffs his season.

Chiefs fans Justin Golubski and Matthew Cleveland followed through with their trip to Mexico City, even after the game was moved to Los Angeles, and shared the pictures in this story with FOX4. The Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans will be making their first trips to play in England, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars, respectively.

Today, however, the National Football League released its official lineup of worldwide games, and while the Chargers are indeed the home squad in Mexico City, the Steelers are not their opponent.

The NFL released the worldwide schedule for next season on Monday.

The other four games will be played in the Untied Kingdom.

The Bengals will play the Los Angeles Rams this year in London, the team announced Monday. A team like the Chargers, who will host the Packers in a tiny soccer stadium next season, weren't willing to give up a home game against the Packers for an worldwide game. It's also a good bet that the National Football League will be heavy-handed as the city prepares to host the game, which should mean decent field conditions when it comes time to play.
