The NFL’s international series is officially back with a pair of October games.

The Falcons will host the Jets in Week Five and the Jaguars will host the Dolphins in Week Six.

Both games will be played at 9:30 a.m. ET. The Jets-Falcons matchup on Oct. 10 will air on NFL Network. Miami vs. Jacksonville on Oct. 17 will air on CBS.

The Falcons announced in April that they would host a game in London. Atlanta has two preseason home games and seven regular-season games scheduled for Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2021. The Falcons previously took on the Lions in London in 2014, also serving as the home team for that matchup. The Jets previously played in London in 2015, defeating the Dolphins at Wembley Stadium.

With the exception of 2020, the Jaguars have played a home game in London each year since 2013 — last winning a game over the Ravens in Sept. 2017. This will be the Dolphins’ fourth time playing in London, last going across the pond in 2017.

The NFL announced only these two international games on Wednesday. Daniel Kaplan of TheAthletic.com reported Tuesday that the NFL made the determination not to hold a game in Mexico City in 2021.

  1. Jaguars in London? Wow that was unexpected. How do I engage the sarcasm font?

  2. Oh good. That’s what everyone was really missing this past season. Early morning bad football games played in other countries.

  3. I for one, can’t wait. Looking forward to catching a game back home soon!

  4. If Europe wants games over there so bad, why doesn’t the NFL start like a league over there. They could call it NFL-Europe or something. How do I engage the sarcasm font?

  5. I cant stress this enough . How come miami is the only team that goes to London but then has to play 7 weeks before they get there BYE? The other 3 teams get byes the following week. PLAYERS are going to be fatigued and jett lagged. Which is all reasons why someone may get injured through those 7 weeks. That’s not focusing on player safety Goodell .

  6. I know London loves the Jaguars and the Dolphins. So much that any of those 2 teams could eventually call london home. They do not like NE or TB12 so that’s why you never see them play games over there.

  7. Goodell mentioned at the beginning of all of this out of country game play . That teams in the Superbowl had 5 years to make an appearance in London. Well then there are some teams well over due that jet lagging flight.
