The NFL's appetite for playing games outside the U.S. keeps growing.

NFL owners approved more international games through 2025 on Wednesday at their meetings in New York, including games in places other than England such as Mexico, Germany or Canada.

"We think it's time to expand our international series to other countries," Commissioner Roger Goodell said.

Mexico, where one regular-season game in 2005 drew 103,467, is a front-runner for next year.

"That's our biggest fan base, our most vibrant market," said Mark Waller, the league's vice president/international. "It would be a logical place to start."

The NFL will announce the 2016 international games this fall. Three games are being held at London's Wembley Stadium this season.

• Goodell said owners have expressed interest "in wanting to [have a franchise in Los Angeles] but also recognize we need to find solutions."

The St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers all have designs on moving to L.A., which has not had an NFL franchise since 1995, when the Rams and Raiders left. The current timetable calls for submission of applications to relocate in January, when the owners could vote.


• Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill says he regrets disparaging two teammates. Annoyed that defensive players were practicing aggressively the day before the Dolphins' loss to the Jets on Sunday in London, Tannehill sarcastically told the two reserves they would receive a scout team trophy. "I've talked to those guys and cleared the air with them," Tannehill said.

• The New York Giants have taken a crash course on MRSA. Team doctors, the team trainer, the head of the team's facilities and the players union spoke to players after tight end Daniel Fells was hospitalized with the antibiotic-resistant bacteria that kills thousands annually.

• Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said he plans to appeal a fine by the league for throwing a punch at Bills safety Duke Williams, who knocked him down Sunday on an interception return.

• Tight end Antonio Gates is back with the Chargers after a four-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.
