Tottenham to host Raiders versus Seahawks as Levy outlines franchise objective

The Jacksonville Jaguars will return to London next season to play the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a National Football League announcement.

The Oakland Raiders, who have played in London once prior, will host the Seattle Seahawks in their first visit to London on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018 (Week 6).

Other games to be played in London next season include Seattle-Oakland on Oct. 14 and Tennessee-Los Angeles Chargers Oct. 21 or 28.

The 2018 game overseas, like the last three, will feature the Raiders as the "home" team. While the Jaguars are familiar with the far away game, this will be the first time ever that the Eagles play outside of the United States.

The Green Bay Packers will not play in London during the 2018 season. This will be part of a three-game set in London. There are two out-of-conference games here, but all six teams should be in pursuit of the postseason next year.

"This enables us to achieve important learnings relating to the fans' preferences, ticketing, team logistics and local transportation and infrastructure, in order to create the best possible experience and environment".

Last season, the Dolphins were shut out by the Saints 20-0, as the struggling offense continued a stretch of eight quarters with just one touchdown.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will again be playing a home game in London in 2018.

The news got out earlier today about the teams participating in London games this year, leaving the league to announce dates and times this morning.

Almost three decades earlier, the Chargers also helped expand the league's profile in a more unorthodox fashion, playing the St. Louis Cardinals in a preseason game known as the Mainichi Star Bowl.

Even the chief executive of England's Football Association pointed out the benefits of having NFL games in London.

It is a reduction from the 2017-18 schedule, when London hosted four matches, including two at Twickenham, which is without a game next season.
