Seahawks will finally play in London: 2018 game there against Oakland

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL announced its slate of 2018 regular season games in London on Thursday, and the Washington Redskins aren't on the bill.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will return to London next season to play the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a National Football League announcement.

The game will take place on October 14 at English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium during Week 6.

The Rams are forced to play one home game internationally each year until their new stadium opens in 2020, but next season's game won't be in London.

Two other games will be held in London this upcoming season, with the Eagles facing the Jaguars and the Seahawks facing the Raiders - the latest contests in an worldwide era that the Chargers helped kick off.

The Dolphins have played more game in London than any team but the Jaguars.

The Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers, and the Houston Texans are the only teams that have not played in London.

The three-game London slate offers worldwide fans a bevy of enticing matchups.

Overall, this will be the Chargers' sixth game overseas in franchise history, according to the team's official website. Mexico City has also hosted a game each of the past two seasons.

The second game that was announced features a pair of division champions who are still alive in the playoffs. "We are looking forward to showcasing our team to the National Football League fans in London and throughout Europe".

The team's remaining home games for the next two years will be played at the Bolts' temporary home, the StubHub Center.

Next season's London matchup should be a good one.

The number of games is a reduction from the four contested during the 2017 season.

For the Seahawks, a road game would be ideal for the obvious reason of not having to give up one of their eight home games.

"There was a possibility of a fourth game but we wanted to focus on back-to-back-to-back games and quality games", he said.
