Report: London could host 3 NFL games as soon as 2014
The NFL could play three regular-season games in London as soon as 2014, according to a report.
The NFL has been going to London for seven years, and this season is the first time they'll host two regular-season games. In the first matchup, the Vikings outpaced the Steelers, 34-27 in Week 4. And on Oct. 27, the 49ers will meet the Jaguars in Jacksonville's home away from home.
But the league could play three regular-season games in London as soon as 2014, according to PFT.com. The decision could largely be driven by the success of the two contests this season.
"At their next meeting on October 8, owners will be briefed on international business, with a focus on London," PFT.com's Mike Florio wrote. "Key points will include fan base, sponsor base, and TV deals."
Meanwhile, MMQB.com's Peter King reports that while the Jaguars were initially interested in playing two games in London, they have since cooled on the idea "because of a tough road schedule this year."
Fair enough. Traveling to Seattle to endure a 45-17 thrashing is one thing. Having to show up in Europe for a beatdown adds several more layers of inconvenience and embarrassment.
Either way, the Jags are obligated to play at least one game in London for the next three seasons, news that no doubt makes Terry Bradshaw very happy.
