The NFL has continued to do business in China, but it doesn’t appear there’s going to be a game there soon. Via Albert Breer of, any hope of the league playing a regular season game in China appears to be on hold for now, according to the head of the league’s international efforts. “I don’t think it’ll be ’18. I don’t think we’re ready,” said Mark Waller. Waller has previously suggested the possibility of opening the 2019 season in China, but first, they need to build the market. He also suggested that a game in Germany doesn’t seem imminent.
