Earlier this month, the NFL said there would be three games in London for the 2014 season, and the Jaguars, Falcons and Raiders would be the "home" team at Wembley Stadium. On Thursday, the league announced the who those teams will face.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons
Miami Dolphins vs. Oakland Raiders

The dates and times will be announced at a later date.

"Our fans in the UK continue to demonstrate their passion for more football," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “Next year for the first time we will play three regular-season games in London. We have scheduled three attractive games with four teams playing in their first International Series game. The growing enthusiasm for the NFL internationally is exciting and we look forward to continuing to respond to this interest in our game.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said a few weeks ago that he'd like to play in London but with one stipulation: He didn't want it to come at the expense of a home game at AT&T Stadium.

"We would never play a home game in London, at all," he said. "All of our home games are too important to us. You have to have a situation where somebody's willing to be the home team, which gives up a game at their home. ... That's possible."

And now it's a reality.
