National Football League (NFL) commissioner Roger Goodell has revealed the franchises to play in next year’s International Series fixtures at Wembley Stadium.
Earlier this month, the NFL organised a third game to be played outside of the United States for the first time in its history. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders will each play a ‘home’ game at Wembley next season.
Goodell today confirmed that the opponents are the Dallas Cowboys who will face the Jaguars, the Detroit Lions will play the Falcons, and the Miami Dolphins will be hosted by the Raiders. Dates for the games are yet to be confirmed.
The commissioner said: "We have scheduled three attractive games with four teams playing in their first International Series game [Falcons, Cowboys, Lions and Raiders]. The growing enthusiasm for the NFL internationally is exciting and we look forward to continuing to respond to this interest in our game."
