The NFL will be continuing their International Series in London, England next year with three games that take overseas in Wembley Stadium. While we are all preparing for our triple-header on Thanksgiving Day, the NFL has announced the dates for the 2014 international games.

The first International Series game will be on September 28, with the Oakland Raiders meeting the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium in Week Four.  In Week Eight, the Atlanta Falcons take on the Detroit Lions, before the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars meet in Week 10.

If the current trend continues, all of the teams playing in London will have their bye weeks the following week.

Plenty of people don’t like to see their teams headed overseas and taking away home games, but the NFL makes plenty of money and they don’t appear to have any plans to alter their plans anytime soon.

    On one hand, I don’t care if NFL is popular overseas or not. This is our thing! On the other hand, there are a lot of Americans overseas. Speaking as a former serviceman it is awesome to get a taste of home when you can.

    Can’t they find a way to make it an away game for both teams so the fans at home don’t get boned?
