The NFL keeps extending its international series of games, and it continues to extend the length of the days of football.

Contrary to previous reports that the league wanted to ditch the 9:30 a.m. ET kickoffs for London games, three of the four games scheduled for the UK will be breakfast specials here in the United States.

That includes the Sept. 24 Ravens-Jaguars game at Wembley, the Oct. 1 Saints-Dolphins at Wembley and the Oct. 29 Vikings-Browns game at Twickenham Stadium.

The Oct. 22 Cardinals-Rams game will be a 1 p.m. ET kickoff, meaning it will be played under the lights in the UK.

  1. I haven’t watched a 9:30 AM game yet, and I won’t watch a 9:30 am game in the future. Not even if my favorite team is playing. I’ll DVR it, but that’ll just allow me to fast forward through all the commercials.

  2. One game features the Jags and the other features the Browns. Might as well just sleep through those games. The good news for the Ravens and Vikings is they get a bye week in London and can have a good time.

  3. A lot of crybabies in the comments section. I’m thankful for an additional three hours of football on three separate Sundays this season.

    To those that oppose, are you really gonna miss these games? Instead of nine 1pm games there will only be eight games for you to watch at 1pm.

  4. I like the 9:30a EST games when my team (Jags) are playing. Means I can watch them, get a little morning/early afternoon buzz going on and then be at the beach by 1p. Great Sunday!

  5. I don’t get it, the NFL aspires to promote pro football and then turns around and sends them the Browns vs. Vikings.

    Besides having ugly uniforms, can you find two worst teams in a NFL matchup?

    You mean like Jags vs 49ers?
