Titans to play LA Chargers in England

  • Jaguars QB Bortles says criticism will 'probably never stop'

2016 was the first year that Twickenham Stadium was used, and two more games were played there in 2017.

The other game, also to be played at Wembley, will feature first-timers Tennessee against the Los Angeles Chargers - that will be played on Sunday, October 21 or 28.

Gridiron fans will be able to sample the action once again at Wembley, as well as at Tottenham Hotspur's brand new stadium. As part of the Super Bowl hosting National Football League rules, teams who wish to host the Super Bowl must be willing to give up a home game and play overseas.

The NFL made it official Thursday, setting the details for the Eagles' first appearance in the league's International Series next season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jaguars' 2018 schedule at EverBank Field will be Houston, Indianapolis, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, New England, the New York Jets and Washington.

Highlights from the announcement include three new teams traveling to the UK.




And over the following fortnight Wembley will then stage two fixtures: Jaguars vs Eagles and Chargers vs Titans. Last year, the Mexico City game between the Raiders and Patriots was announced February 1.

The rematch of this year's AFC Championship Game will take place on USA soil.

This will be the Chargers' sixth game overseas in franchise history and second in the regular season.

"We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the United Kingdom", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The long-term ambition, however, must be for Spurs to become the full-time home of a London franchise and chairman Daniel Levy told reporters at the club's headquarters that he "hoped" this would be the case.

Tickets details will be released on January 18. Fans can sign up at www.chargers.com/london for the latest information on the Chargers' trip to London.
