Mexico, Jul 6 (EFE) .- The Arizona Cardinals’ leader in quarterback sacks in 2021, Markus Golden, declared himself amazed on Wednesday by the passion that the NFL unleashes in Mexico.
“I am amazed by the enormous passion that there is in Mexico for the NFL. I am excited that the game is coming to the Azteca Stadium because I can feel that energy and I can’t wait to get on the field,” the linebacker told Efe.
The linebacker, who had 11 sacks with the Cardinals last season, visited Mexico City as part of the promotion for the game his team will play against the San Francisco 49ers at the Azteca stadium on November 21.
In this scenario, the attendance record for an NFL championship game was broken with 103,407 fans, on October 2, 2005 in a game that the Arizona Cardinals beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-14.
Both teams will meet in the eleventh week of the season.
“I know that the Azteca Stadium is the largest in Mexico, that there is a great atmosphere when it is full and the sound of the fans is really deafening. I can’t wait to be there,” he stressed.
Golden said the Cardinals’ challenge this season is to become the third consecutive team to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy in front of their home crowd, as Super Bowl LVII takes place at their home State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
“Between teammates we talked about how Tampa Bay won at home and then the Rams repeated it. It would be three times that this happens if we achieve it, it would be perfect for Arizona and of course we think about that, but we prefer to go one game at a time,” he mentioned.
In the 2019 season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. In 2021, in the LVI edition, the Los Angeles Rams raised the Lombardi at SoFi Stadium, their home located in Inglewood, California.
Before thinking about the championship, Markus Golden said that they must first concentrate to overcome what they did the previous season in which they were eliminated in the playoffs in the wild card game by the Los Angeles Rams.
“The NFL is extremely competitive, so we can’t overlook anything. First we have to think about how to top what we did last year,” he said. EFE
