Many of the 256 combinations of known-opponent/date which will be formally announced tonight at 8 p.m. will leak out ahead of time.

The league went ahead and spilled the beans on four more this morning.

The NFL announced the dates for the four international matchups.

The Seahawks will play the Raiders on Oct. 14 at the new Totttenham Hotspur stadium, the first NFL game at the brand new venue, which the league offered input and a little money for the construction of.

The Titans will play the Chargers at Wembley on Oct. 21, and the Eagles will play the Jaguars at Wembley on Oct. 28.

Coupled with the Nov. 19 Chiefs-Rams game in Mexico City, the four international dates are now set.

  1. Surprised South American’s team – the Cowboys weren’t selected for the Mexico City Game

  2. When are the Packers ever going to be scheduled for an overseas game? Is it because the NFL is worried about exposing their obnoxious fans to another country?

  3. Here we go…..Even with declining ratings in the US and the Jets opening on MNF, the NFL is hellbent on international expansion.

    The Jags will be moving to London very soon, folks.

    Buffalo to Beijing.

    Don’t laugh. Money talks. And, we know about the greed with these owners and Goodell.

    They’ll do anything to get the result they desire, including lying and cheating the NFL fan to get there.

  4. They need to stop this crap. The international fans of the NFL are far and few between , and it’s wholesale unfair to the season ticket holders of the ‘home’ teams .

  5. Hahahahaha the Chargers game is one of those 930 AM games. Except in LA (where they already struggle with ratings) it will be 630 AM.

    Get ready for the lowest ratings in a home market in NFL history. Oh and a 0.0 in San Diego.

  6. I am going brought my season tix months ago. Wasn’t taking a chance on not getting Eagles tix. Week in London with 2 NFL games, nice vacation.

  7. “the first NFL game at the brand new venue, which the league offered input and a little money for the construction of.”

    I don’t mind the overseas games and know I am in the minority in that.

    However the fact that the league has money to spend on helping build a stadium in the UK while they are extorting taxpayers for billion dollar palaces here is beyond disgusting. No city in the US should ever give he league a dime towards a stadium ever again.

    I wonder if the league will have a later kickoff for the (2) games that have west coast teams or make their fans watch at 6 am?
    ______________

    Depends on who the home team is for Titans/Chargers i would think.

  9. Get your Anti-America protests ready NFL employees!! Keep reminding us how much you dislike the greatest country in the world!

    I can see why teams would hate it because they lose home-field advantage in one game. In a relatively short, 16-game season that could potentially make a difference.
    But how exactly is it “wholesale unfair” to “fans?”
    The NFL is a business. Fans are its customers. Teams that play a home game overseas charge their season ticket holders for seven home games instead of eight. No fan is losing a game they paid for, and so long as they’re not, not one of them has any God-given or other inalienable right to watch eight regular season games instead of seven.
    It’s a business transaction. You get one less game and you pay for one less game. Fair or unfair is not part of the equation.

  11. League is right to leave dallas off all these marquee dates. Who wants to see pop gun prescott and his 200 yd passing games

    No, it’s because their “obnoxious” fans are everywhere. The home teams they play against don’t want to give up the Packer game on their schedule because it’s a guaranteed sell-out for them. The NFL typically sends the teams with smaller fan-bases (like the vikings) overseas.

    Calm down Harrison….

    I understand it really wasn’t that much; just a couple thousand dollars and some plane tickets to an American engineering consultancy, just to make sure design elements of the new stadium in North London were suited to NFL games. I think they were the same engineers who worked on designing the stadium out in Santa Clara……

  14. Imagine sending a scheduled home Eagles game to Arizona to play the Giants… No one cares in AZ and you lose 90% of your true fan base.

    According to ESPN, last season the Packers only had 3 road games that were 100% sellouts. Meanwhile, the Vikings had 5 regular season road games that were 100% sellouts. The Vikings had almost double the amount of road-game sellouts as the Packers. Once again, Packer fans think they are so special, but they are not. My reason for not sending the Packers overseas makes more sense.

  16. This might be Seattles second and final nationally televised game this season. I’m guessing 4-5 early am games since a west coast matchup has been scheduled in this time frame. Get your favorite breakfast beers ready, hope Pete has them practicing every day 7 am to get prepared.

  17. Mark Davis…..will grab any money he can, and has now become a token team for the NFL….Take the money every single year for playing in England, Mexico,or anywhere else. As it does not matter as long as they get a few bucks for doing so…Money grab in Las Vegas as well….$80k per seat PSL fees for long time season ticket holders who will pay the same price as some bozo in Las Vegas..what a joke….its not about the fans, its about the buck. With that said, bottom line…

    GO Raiders!!!!

    I agree, with the 1st part @ least. The NFL should be rotating the games in England & Mexico, and not allow teams like the Packers whining b/c their fans can’t come or they don’t want to give up a home game. No one wants to give up a home game. They shouldn’t be treated differently just b/c they always seem to need an advantage like a crutch. If they’re part of the NFL they need to act like it.

  19. Shocked there aren’t any trash games in there. Usually the NFL likes to export some of its garbage. They decided to keep the amazing Jets-Browns matchup in the US at least. And put it in primetime.

  20. As a seahawks fan, I am severely disappointed I won’t get one last chance to go to an away game vs one of our old AFC West Rivals the Oakland Raiders. Bummer, couldn’t we play someone no one cares about, like the 49ers over there?

  21. Assuming the chiefs make the playoffs. can they play abroad? maybe this way they can win a playoff game. how pathetic not one playoff game in how many years? ladies and gentlemen, welcome to arrowhead. home of the one and done chefs.
