The NFL loves the idea of football in London so much that it’ll play three games across the pond in 2014. The league just announced that those three matchups in 2014 will be:
Miami Dolphins vs. Oakland Raiders
Dallas Cowboys vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Atlanta Falcons vs. Detroit Lions
The teams that gave up a home game to play in London are Jacksonville (of course), Atlanta and Oakland. Jacksonville, will struggles to fill its stadium, committed to playing a home game in London from 2013-2016. The Jaguars play the 49ers in London Sunday. The line for the game is 17.5 in some places. It should be a thriller.
From a “star’ perspective, at least London will be treated to the likes of Julio Jones, Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant.
