Jaguars to play Eagles for annual London game in 2018

LONDON ENGLAND- OCTOBER 30 Andy Dalton #14 of the Cincinnati Bengals celebrates as he runs in for a touchdown during the NFL International Series Game between Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals at Wembley Stadium

In the first of next season's match-ups on October 14, the Oakland Raiders will play host to the Seattle Seahawks at Tottenham's new stadium.

"We are excited as a franchise to be playing in London as part of the NFL's International Series", said Titans Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk. According to the Tribune, NFL rules state teams in temporary home stadiums are required to play worldwide games. No decision has been made as to whether the Jaguars will have their Bye Week immediately following the game against Philadelphia in London.

The Seahawks-Raiders matchup is set in stone with an Oct. 14 date, and the Eagles-Jaguars game will be either Oct. 21 or Oct. 28.

While Tottenham is sure that building work is on schedule on the White Hart Lane site where its previous stadium was demolished past year, the National Football League has contingency plans to move the October 14 game to Wembley Stadium.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will again be playing a home game in London in 2018.

One of those fixtures will be played on 21 October and the other on 28 October, with the decision on that still to be taken. Another first-time team Tennessee Titans will play Los Angeles Chargers.

Mark Waller, NFL executive vice-president of events and global, says it might work. Tottenham Hotspur and the league will split gate receipts and food, drink and merchandise sales from NFL games there.

There will be three consecutive weeks of matches in London.

It will be played on the stadium's artificial surface, which sits beneath the retractable grass pitch. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London.

All four winning teams in the NFL's London Games 2017 series went on to win their divisions: Jacksonville (AFC South), New Orleans Saints (NFC South), Los Angeles Rams (NFC West) and Minnesota Vikings (NFC North).

"Being asked to play overseas is a result of the success we have had over the last two years", said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson. The home of English football has now hosted 18 NFL games, with nearly 1.5 million fans in attendance.

The second game that was announced features a pair of division champions who are still alive in the playoffs.
