NFL announces 2019 International Series games

The NFL has announced the participants of its five International Series games in 2019, four of which will be played in London and one in Mexico City.

The Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders will play the first NFL game at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 6. The stadium will also host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers on October 13.

At Wembley Stadium, the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will meet on October 27, followed by a match between London regulars Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans on November 3.

After this year’s games, the Green Bay Packers will be the only NFL team yet to play in London.

The NFL will return to Mexico despite last season’s Kansas City Chiefs-Rams game being moved to Los Angeles because of poor field conditions at Azteca Stadium. On November 18, the Chiefs will play the LA Chargers at the Azteca.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns will feature in three prime-time games in the NFL season’s first five weeks – and four overall – highlighting the new excitement around the team, spearheaded by quarterback Baker Mayfield and the recent addition of receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
