FOXBORO -- The NFL Foundation, Patriots, Raiders and Steelers will together contribute $200,000 to Banorte's Fundación Banorte to support disaster relief efforts following last month's earthquake in Mexico City, the NFL announced Thursday.

In addition, the Cowboys have committed $50,000 to the Salvation Army's relief efforts in Mexico City.

The Patriots will play the Raiders in Mexico City Nov. 19.

"That’s going to be very exciting for our team," Tom Brady said Wednesday. "I’ve never been to Mexico City, so I’m very excited about it. Hopefully, we can go play really well, but that’s down the road a little bit. But yeah, obviously, with going through such a tragic event, hopefully the city really recovers, and I know it will. Hopefully, we can bring a little bit of joy down there."
