  • Tottenham's new White Hart Lane stadium to host Raiders-Seahawks NFL game

In the league's announcement Thursday, the Eagles are set to face off against the Jaguars in either Week 7 or Week 8 of the 2018 NFL season at Wembley Stadium, in London.

That one will feature the Seahawks and the Raiders on October 14.

Normally, it'd be unfortunate for a team to lose one of its home games, especially when one has to travel extremely far to play the game. The other two will take place at Wembley Stadium, English soccer's national stadium, on October 21 or 28. While there was a ton of hype around the Raiders playing the New England Patriots in Mexico City this past season, Oakland wasn't very good and New England buzz sawed the Silver and Black.

Levy said: 'Our vision was always to deliver far more than a stadium - we have looked to create a new sport and leisure destination for London and to start real place change in Tottenham - an area about which we are passionate. We have known since the season ended that the Silver and Black will be playing its AFC West rivals, the AFC North, the NFC West, the Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins in 2018.

It marks the first time the Seahawks, Eagles and Titans have played in London.

The league is expected to announce the Chargers and the rest of the NFL's schedule in the spring. Previous year the Dolphins, who missed their home opener due to Hurricane Irma, traveled to San Diego, New York, and then to London to open the season. The game will be at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

"Since we last visited London in 2008, the NFL's popularity has continued to grow in the United Kingdom", A.G. Spanos, the Chargers' president of business operations, said in a statement. The order of those games will be announced closer to the season. "A key feature of our success is playing in iconic, world-renowned venues like Wembley and Twickenham, and we look forward to playing in what will be another incredible setting for NFL football at Tottenham's new stadium".

"NFL games bring people to the stadium from all over the world, economic spend to the local area and are among the highlights of the Wembley events calendar". Those interested in attending any of the games can go to www.ticketmaster.com/nfl for information.
