The NFL has announced the participants in the three games that will take place in London during the 2022 regular season.

February brought word that the Saints, Packers, and Jaguars would be the designated home teams for games in England. The Saints will be first up as they will be taking on the Vikings at Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium on October 2.

That stadium will be in use again the next week when the Packers “host” the Giants in what will be Green Bay’s first London game. Once that game kicks off, all 32 NFL teams will have played in London at least once.

Wembley Stadium will be the scene for an October 30 game between the Jaguars and the Broncos. It’s the ninth time that the Jaguars have been scheduled to play in London and they will continue playing games there through at least the 2024 season.

All three games will begin at 9:30 a.m. ET.

The NFL also announced on Wednesday that the Buccaneers and Seahawks will play in the first regular season game in Germany. The remaining international game will feature the Cardinals playing in Mexico City and their opponent is set to be revealed on Wednesday as well.

  1. Not sure why they are forcing teams to play in Europe. With the time zones I never watch any of them. There are way more fans in Canada so if the NFL really needs to play games outside the country go there. Most fans I have spoken with never tune in for games played in Europe.

    Packers should NEVER have to do this. NO FAIR!!!


    The Packers being the only team in the NFL that hasn’t played an international game is fair but having them play an international game IS fair? Yeah, ok. Makes sense. 👍

  3. So teams like Minnesota, New Orleans, Green Bay and New York Giants are playing in London in weeks 4 and 5 which means they will have their bye weeks in weeks 5 and 6. With a 17-game schedule and an 18-week regular season, no team should be having their bye weeks prior to week 7. The NFL needs to do a better job of balancing out the bye weeks over the course of the middle of the season such as weeks 7-12.

  4. In a twist, the Packers will host FC Bayern Munich and Manchester City July 23 at Lambeau Field.
    Two of Europe’s top soccer teams will play an exhibition. So the Packers lose a home NFL game but will gain an international soccer crowd/audience for ‘football’.

    I’m told those two teams are two of the best in the world.

  5. I’ll record the game so I can go to church. If the pastor announces the score during the sermon, I’ll blame Goodell for ruining my day.
