NFL International Series: Jaguars, Rams, Chargers, Raiders & Buccaneers to host games in London and Mexico

The NFL returns to Wembley again this autumn

The five teams who will host NFL games the four International Series games in London and one in Mexico have been released.

Regular hosts Jacksonville Jaguars are joined by the Los Angeles Rams, city rivals the Chargers, the Oakland Raiders and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Rams, Chargers and Raiders are all in the process of moving stadia so therefore forfeit a home game to stage on in the UK or Mexico, while Tampa Bay return as hosts for the first time since 2011.

Two of the London games will take place at Wembley with the other two scheduled for Tottenham’s new stadium, which is still yet to be open.

One of this year’s London games was supposed to be played at the new White Hart Lane but had to be switched to Wembley, while the game in Mexico was moved back to LA due to an unplayable pitch at the Estadio Azteca.

Details of their five opponents and the times and dates of the games will be announced at a later date, although the NFL is expected to try and complete the full set of 32 teams having played in London.

The Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers are the only teams yet to play in London, but the Chargers are scheduled to face the Packers next season while the Jaguars v Texans and Bucs v Panthers are both divisional games.
