National Football League announces three enticing London 2018 matchups

National Football League announces three enticing London 2018 matchups

The Philadelphia Eagles will play a regular-season game in London for the first time next season against the Jaguars, Philly.com's Jeff McLane reported, citing National Football League sources.

The contest in London has the makings of a high-powered game, too.

The NFL made it official Thursday, setting the details for the Eagles' first appearance in the league's International Series next season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Other games to be played in London next season include Seattle-Oakland on Oct. 14 and Tennessee-Los Angeles Chargers Oct. 21 or 28. The dates of those games haven't been determined.

The Eagles also have road games this season Dallas, Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans, New York Giants, Tampa Bay, Tennessee and Washington.

Which stadiums are hosting this time?

Murphy and the Packers have said many times that the franchise would be unwilling to give up a home game to play in London. That game will be on October 21 or October 28 at Wembley Stadium.

"It's a great learning for us, it's another test for us", Mark Waller, the NFL's executive vice president of global, said Thursday at the site of Tottenham's new stadium. "It's a great learning for us, it's another test, it's something we've not done before and if we were ever to put a franchise in the United Kingdom we'd need to know if we could do consecutive weekends".

The NFL had planned to stage two games in the 2018 season at Tottenham, which was runner-up in the Premier League last season. "We still have another six or seven months of really hard work of construction". "By playing games on three consecutive weeks, we will learn a lot, both from the fans buying tickets and attending games, and from a logistics and organizational standpoint".

Coincidentally, Thursday also marks the day the Philadelphia 76ers happen to be playing in London with an exciting meeting against a familiar face in the Boston Celtics, but let's focus on the Eagles for now. "It's very much our desire". As a member of the Dolphins earlier this year, Ajayi became the first London-born skill player to take the field for a regular-season game in his home city.

Previous year saw four games being played in London, with two at Wembley and two at Twickenham.
