For only the second time ever, the NFL kicks off a regular season game south of the border Monday night, pitting the Oakland Raiders (7-2) against the Houston Texans (6-3) at Estadio Azteca in suburban Mexico City.

SFBay director of photography Scot Tucker flew down early and captured NFL fans at La NFL Fan Fest at Chapultepec Parka three-day celebration of Fútbol Americano. Raider Nation made its presence felt Sunday, as they are sure to do Monday night at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN for Monday Night Football.
