BOCA RATON, Fla. –  NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the league is looking into the possibility of playing games in China.  After the end of league meetings in Boca Raton, Goodell said the league will continue to play games in London as well as Mexico and that China is just too big of a market to ignore.   According to the Seattle Times,  the Los Angeles Rams are expected to be the host team.    As one of the eight teams who will play a road game against the Rams that season, the Seahawks could theoretically end up as Los Angeles’ opponent for what would be the NFL’s first game in China.  Other opponents already set on the Rams’ 2018 home schedule are the 49ers, Cardinals, Packers, Vikings, Chiefs and Chargers.
