  • Seahawks will finally play in London: 2018 game there against Oakland

On the National Football League fixture, Levy added: 'The announcement of the first game of the NFL's 2018 London Games to take place at our new home heralds the commencement of our 10-year partnership.

Moving the Eagles game to London means Philadelphia will go 16 years between regular season visits to Jacksonville. Two will be staged at Wembley following the first game which will be played at Tottenham Hotspur's new 61,000-seat stadium.

The Raiders take on Seattle at Tottenham's new stadium on Week 6 of the campaign - Sunday, October 14.

The league has also often sent teams that have had trouble selling out home games to London to play there as the designated "home" team: Oakland (twice), Jacksonville (three time) and the Los Angeles Rams (three times).

"We are excited as a franchise to be playing in London as part of the NFL's International Series", Titans Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk said in a statement posted to the team's website. Only three teams remain: the Carolina Panthers, Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans.

"Other than the outcome of the game back in 2008, the experience there among the worldwide fans was pretty cool", Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said. The Jaguars won the AFC South with one of the best defenses in the NFL. However, it should be noted why four of these teams are playing games on worldwide soil in 2018. The order of those games will be announced closer to the season.

The NFL is cutting back from four games to three but will stage all of the match-ups in consecutive weekends for the first time as it continues to experiment with operational logistics in the country.

Since regular-season games were first played in London in 2007, 21 have been played in the British capital featuring 26 different teams.

Its a good list of quarterback for the Brits, who haven't seen a ton of playoff-caliber football in recent years. Those games will be October 21 and 28, with the order of the games announced closer to the season.
