The NFL has released the international schedule for the 2014 season. There will be three games overseas in London at Wembley Stadium.
The first game will be in week four, when the Oakland Raiders will host the Miami Dolphins. In week 10 the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Dallas Cowboys.
The interesting match up is the week eight showdown between the Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons. That game will be played at 1:30 p.m. local time, which means it will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET. Traditionally there are three slots of games on Sunday, and this would be a fourth game window when fans are usually watching pre-game shows. That could make for a full and exciting day of football.
“We are excited about playing three regular-season games in the UK for the first time and debuting a new game time that we expect to be a hit with fans on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world,” said Mark Waller, NFL chief marketing officer.
