Five International Series games on the 2019 NFL schedule were assigned dates on Wednesday, including a primetime AFC West rivalry game in Mexico pitting the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers at Azteca Stadium.

The matchups for all five games, four of which are scheduled to be played in
London, were announced by the NFL on Jan. 21.

The Chiefs-Chargers game is the final date on the International Series
schedule, which opens Oct. 6 with the Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders in a 1
p.m. ET game at Tottenham Stadium.

NFC South division foes are at Tottenham the following Sunday, when the
Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers square off in a 9:30 a.m. ET game
(Oct. 13).

Play shifts to Wembley Stadium on Oct. 27 as the Cincinnati Bengals and NFC
champion Los Angeles Rams meet (1 p.m. ET), and AFC South opponents -- Houston
Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars -- play Nov. 3 in a 9:30 a.m. ET contest.

The Rams were scheduled to play the Chiefs at Azteca Stadium last season, but
that "Monday Night Football" game was moved to Los Angeles due to field
conditions.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said at the Super Bowl in February that NFL
officials are confident the game will be played in Mexico City this year.
