Here’s everything you need to know about the London games next season.
The NFL’s International Series rolls on in 2018 with another series of games taking place in London. On Thursday, the league will announce its upcoming schedule, featuring the Jon Gruden-led Raiders, Carson Wentz and the Eagles and the Seahawks. News of which teams will play in the UK next season was first reported by Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
What are the games?
The Jaguars, regulars on the London circuit, will “host” the Eagles in one game. And unlike years past when the Jaguars struggled, this one should be pretty good. In fact, all of the games ticketed for London look to be, on paper nine months out, solid matchups.
The Seahawks will take on the Raiders, and the Chargers will face the Titans.
What are the most interesting things to know this year?
The three games are heavy on West Coast teams. The Raiders, Chargers, and Seahawks, three of the six teams playing across the pond next season, will all have to travel the 10,000 miles or so to play those games. Teams coming from the West Coast to the East Coast already have a disadvantage, so tacking on a few more time zones won’t help.
It’s also a first for three of the teams. The Eagles, Seahawks and Titans are three of the six NFL teams that have never played a game in the UK.
Which stadiums are hosting this time?
The games are expected to be played in at Wembley Stadium and a new stadium in north London built for the English Premier League’s Tottenham Hotpur soccer club.
The NFL will make the official announcement at 10:45 a.m. ET.
