Dates set for London games

The news got out earlier today about the teams participating in London games this year, leaving the league to announce dates and times this morning. Sort of.

The first of the games will mark the debut of the NFL in the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, a project the league has worked with the English soccer club on. The stadium is still under construction.

That one will feature the Seahawks and the Raiders on Oct. 14.

The Eagles will play the Jaguars either Oct. 21 or 28 at Wembley, and the Titans will play the Chargers on one of those two dates as well (apparently the league needed some flexibility) before nailing down which game would be played on which date.

With the Eagles, Seahawks and Titans making their debut across the pond, it leaves just three teams who have yet to appear in England — the Panthers, Texans and Packers.

  1. The Raiders can play all their “home” games in London for all I care. I live in Toronto so it’s not like they’re really my hometown team anyway. And they bounce around cities so much, they kind of don’t have any real home fans.

  2. I’m thinking the Eagles are playing in England this year to capitalize on the Carson Wentz/Prince Harry comparison craze. Or maybe I’m just over thinking it.

  3. “We taking bets on how many years it is before New England has to go overseas?”

    Pats have already played 3 games in London, which a simple search of the net would have told you.

    Plus playing in Mexico last season.

  4. Who cares? I care! I don’t want to see my home games taken away from me. I want to see my teams play in Titan Town, not overseas in the middle of the night. This is nothing but a money grab. This isn’t a home game for the Titans, but I will still show my displeasure in taking our game to another country.

  5. Such a stupid and uneven system. So these teams basically get 1 less home game then their division rivals? Just stupid. NFL is always doing things the wrong way.

  6. an 8 hour time difference- this crap is getting old-at least Mexico was only a two hour time difference, and about 5000 mile closer. Plus if you are the token team who has to do this every year, you should at least play the away “home” game when the A’s are still playing. This way when you actually do have home games you are not playing on the infield dirt.

    It’s Green Bay’s turn to play a home game in London
    I agree with you that GB should play in London, but why give up a home game? New England has played there three times with out giving up a home game. Seattle/Dallas/Phil/ also has not given up a home game. If I/m right so far only 14 NFL teams have given up home games to play there. Not to offend any of the fans from other teams, but the teams usually get stuck giving up home games are the bottom dwellers.

    When Allen’s and Lurie’s teams are making the trip you know things are getting serious.
    Their teams are losing a “road” game and gaining a neutral site game. That’s advantageous to their teams while their opponents are losing a “home” game.

    Since the Titans won’t be playing your dollfins that shouldn’t be a problem.
