No NFL game in China in 2018, but 2019 a possibility

If Tom Brady wants to play an NFL game in China before he retires, the soon-to-be 40-year-old quarterback is going to have to play at least three more seasons. The NFL has delayed its plan to hold a game in China in 2018 to 2019, with the latter coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the league. "It may make better sense to look at that game as an opportunity to celebrate our hundred years, in the event we can pull it off and as a way to look forward to the future," NFL executive vice president of international Mark Waller told the Sports Business Journal.
