Redskins avoid London game: Eagles-Jaguars instead

Seahawks will finally play in London: 2018 game there against Oakland

The stadium has been specifically designed with dual-use in mind, as the grass football pitch can be retracted and kept under lights below the stands while the NFL uses an artificial surface. This will be part of a three-game set in London. The league will stage Seahawks-Raiders, Eagles-Jaguars and Titans-Chargers in the United Kingdom next year.

"It's been 10 years since we last played in London, and other than the outcome of the game, the experience there among the worldwide fans was pretty cool", Rivers said in the team's statement. The Eagles will play the visitor to the home team Jaguars while the Raiders and Seahawks will play as will the Chargers and Titans.

The NFL's success in London is directly tied to the Northumberland Development Project. Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch played for Seattle from 2010-15 before retiring and linebacker Bruce Irvin played there for the first four years of his career from 2012-15.

The NFL announced its London Series of games on Thursday and the Jaguars will open the schedule with a game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28. All six teams will be making their London debuts. The stadium has been designed from the ground up with National Football League games in mind, and features a state-of-the-art retractable grass field with an National Football League field turf pitch underneath. The order of those games will be announced closer to the season.

Next season's London matchup should be a good one.

Arsene Wenger: Arsenal can't compete with Man City on Jonny Evans
Arsenal are in dire need of defensive reinforcements following their humiliation at the hands of Nottingham Forest. It is also reported that Manchester City are sniffing around the 30-year-old centre half.

"The NFL will bring a whole new audience to the local area, showcase Tottenham and bring further economic and social benefits with truly global coverage and attraction".

The NFL began its series of regular-season games in London in 2007, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins at Wembley en route to winning the Super Bowl. The Jaguars are back again, this time hosting the Eagles and Carson Wentz, who should face a fiery Jacksonville defense in another intriguing game.

Seattle also played a preseason game against Denver in Tokyo in 1990 and another against the 49ers in Vancouver in 1998.

"Subject to unforeseen circumstances I am very confident sitting here today that the season we are about to enter into, we will be playing our games here - from the start of the season".
