The NFL is slowly moving towards adding more and more action across the pond in London, with the idea of adding a team becoming a very real possibility. But while no team is planning on moving to London, we can expect to see more games played there and more teams dipping their toes in the pond.
One team that has yet to play in London are the Green Bay Packers, and according to ESPN.com blogger Rob Demovsky, that could change in 2016.
It could happen in 2016 but not likely before then. That’s when the Packers next play the Jaguars on the road. The Packers would never give up a home game to play in London. Those games mean too much the small-town economy in Green Bay. But given that the Jaguars are playing a home game a year in London through 2016, that could have the Packers’ name written all over it.
Green Bay moving a home game will never happen, but the NFL showcasing one of their most historic teams in a London game is something that has to have ben kicked around the office at this point. The Jaguars playing the Packers in London could very well happen, as it’s only a matter of time before every team in the league has played a game across the pond.
