League unveils full slate of London games
For the second straight year, the NFL will send three of 256 regular-season games to London. It’s not yet known whether one of those three games will start at 9:30 a.m. ET.
The Dolphins host the Jets on October 4, the Jaguars host the Bills on October 25, and the Chiefs host the Lions on November 1. Per the league’s press release, times will be announced at a later date.
“We are very appreciative of the outstanding support from our fans in the UK, not only for the games at Wembley, but for all of the related NFL events we have hosted throughout the city,” NFL Executive Vice President of International Mark Waller said. “We believe we have a great 2015 schedule that will continue to attract new fans to our sport and strengthen the bonds with our existing fans. To provide UK fans the opportunity to see games on consecutive weekends, to see new teams, and to attend a division game, which feature some of the most passionate rivalries in our sport, are signs of the growth and depth of our UK fan base.”
The release from the Chiefs hints that their game could be dubbed for the early Sunday morning time slot, since the Chiefs say that the contest will be televised “locally and nationally on FOX.” If the game starts at 1:00 p.m. ET, it wouldn’t be broadcast nationally.
