Taking a look at Jags’ first possible London opponent

When the Jaguars (actually, when playing in England we’ll be calling them the “Shaguars”) host the first of four games at Wembley Stadium in 2013, they’ll obviously be playing a team other than, you know, the London Sillynannies.

So who will it be?

According to the 2012 Official NFL Record & Fact Book, the Jaguars will be hosting (in addition to the usual trifecta of Titans-Texans-Colts) the Chiefs, 49ers, Cardinals, and the team that finishes in the same spot as the Jaguars in the AFC East.

Though the Patriots are always willing to export a road game to a foreign land, the chances of the Pats and the Jags finishing in the same position in their respective divisions is, to put it mildly, unlikely.

Still, since the NFL has yet to send a division game to London, it’ll likely be the Chiefs or the AFC East team, given that the other three possibilities — 49ers, Chargers, Cardinals — would have an extra-long travel obligation.

    You think the Patriots are going to have a bad year?

    Imagine if it ends up being the Jags and the Chiefs.

    No one would go, nobody.

    That’s only seven teams.

    You’re missing an AFC West team.

    Jags/Dolphins will be the matchup.

    I hope it’s not the 49ers again, even as a road game.

    Maybe they’ll export Tebowmania to Europe.

    I hope it’s not the 49ers again, just because they are already one of (if not THE) most frequent-flyer-miles-logging teams in the league. Give ‘em a break!!

    Let’s hope all (or at least enough) the players from both teams can get through customs. The UK doesn’t give entry to people with violent or certain drug related criminal records and we all know how often NFL players get arrested for drugs and violence.
