A member of PFT Planet who is getting his NFL fix via Sky Sports in England tells us that the announcers have passed along rumors regarding the teams that will host the two games expected to be played in London next year.
In one game, the Jaguars would host the Redskins. In the other, the 49ers would be the home team.
Per the reader, the announcers suggested that the Ravens would be the visiting team in the game “hosted” by San Francisco. Under the current scheduling formula, however, San Fran will not be playing the teams of the AFC North in 2010; instead, the 49ers will play the four teams of the AFC West, and will play homes games against the Broncos and the Chiefs.
So take it all for what it’s worth. The bottom line is that it sounds like we’ll be hearing something soon regarding the 2010 London game(s). Last year, the league announced on December 1 that the Patriots would play the Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium in October 2009.
