The schedule also features three teams that haven't yet played in the International Series: The Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans.

The series will begin in Week 6 with a Seahawks-Oakland Raiders game at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, built with cooperation and input by the NFL. According to the Tribune, NFL rules state teams in temporary home stadiums are required to play global games.

Other London games this year include Philadelphia-Jacksonville and Tennessee-Los Angeles Chargers.

It has been known for a while that the National Football League will be playing games at Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium after it opens next fall.

Normally, it'd be unfortunate for a team to lose one of its home games, especially when one has to travel extremely far to play the game. So, where will the Rams play?




The Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers, and the Houston Texans are the only teams that have not played in London. All six teams will be making their London debuts. There are over 75,000 United Kingdom fans of the Jaguars, according to the team.

The NFL have confirmed ticketing information on the three NFL London 2018 games will be available on January 18. Muscular tight ends coach Dan Campbell became the interim coach, sparking a brief revolution with his spirited one-on-one and two-on-two hitting drills during practices and back-to-back victories in his first two games. The home of English football has now hosted 18 NFL games, with nearly 1.5 million fans attending them.

"Subject to unforeseen circumstances I am very confident sitting here today that the season we are about to enter into, we will be playing our games here - from the start of the season".

London will play host to three games instead of the usual four but the National Football League have said that it will be made up in the future when five games will be played in a season. This year's new twist is to play games on three consecutive weekends. There's still a chance that Denver could play a game in Mexico, though.
