Patriots Spared From London Game Against Jaguars In 2018 Season

Patriots Spared From London Game Against Jaguars In 2018 Season

The Silver and Black given up a home game to play overseas in four of the past five seasons, and will continue to do so until they move to Las Vegas in 2020.

Next season's slate across the pond includes matchups between the Seahawks and Raiders, Eagles and Jaguars, and finally, the Titans and Chargers.

The contest in London has the makings of a high-powered game, too. The Houston Texans have never played in London, but played an International Series game in Mexico City.

Game times will be announced at a later date but it's reasonable to expect that, for the first time since the International Series began in 2007, two teams with wining records could meet.

So the good news for the Eagles and their fans is that the team won't lose an opportunity to play at Lincoln Financial Field with their trip across the Atlantic Ocean.

The NFL released its 2018 London games, which feature the Titans vs. the Los Angeles Chargers on either October 21 or October 28 at Wembley Stadium.

Trump's behavior at the College Football Playoff Championship raised some questions
Critics took glee in pointing out how Trump had railed against football players failing to respect the national anthem. He placed his right hand over his heart and mouthed the words while Zac Brown Band sang " The Star-Spangled Banner ".

The 2018 National Football League regular-season schedule will be released at some point in April, but the Ravens were reminded Thursday that there is one place they won't be making a return trip later this year. Do you like the idea of the Chargers playing one of their home games in London?

Spurs' 61,000 capacity arena is yet to be completed, but will be hosting the first of the games.

That means the Dolphins will play all 16 games in the United States next season, which will be a welcome change for the team after last year's travel schedule.

The Jaguars will be targeting a fourth consecutive victory at their second home.

Ticketing details will be announced on January 18 and more details on attending the games can be found here.
