  • Eagles to play Jaguars in London in 2018 regular season

The Eagles will play the visitor to the home team Jaguars while the Raiders and Seahawks will play as will the Chargers and Titans.

On Oct. 14, Seattle will play Oakland (Raiders home game) at Tottenham's new stadium. According to the Tribune, NFL rules state teams in temporary home stadiums are required to play worldwide games.

Two other games will be held in London this upcoming season, with the Eagles facing the Jaguars and the Seahawks facing the Raiders - the latest contests in an global era that the Chargers helped kick off.

The Raiders take on Seattle at Tottenham's new stadium on Week 6 of the campaign - Sunday, October 14. Both will be considered home games, meaning the team will play one fewer game in StubHub Center in 2018 and 2019.

Last year, a record four games were played in London.

The Green Bay Packers will not play in London during the 2018 season.

"Other than the outcome of the game back in 2008, the experience there among the global fans was pretty cool", Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said.

The LA Chargers are also back and host the Titans who make their debut in London.

The Jaguars are 3-2 in London, losing to San Francisco (2013) and Dallas (2014) and defeating Buffalo, Indianapolis and Baltimore the last three years.

The 2017 slate was absolutely abysmal, with every game decided by 17 points or more and one team failing to score more than seven points in three of the four contests - two of which were shutouts. The exact order of those two games will be announced at a later date. The league held one game each year there from 2007 to 2012, then added a second annual game in 2013. The Jaguars are back again, this time hosting the Eagles and Carson Wentz, who should face a fiery Jacksonville defense in another intriguing game. 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.
