The Eagles will officially be heading to London in 2018

The NFL announced its London Series of games on Thursday and the Jaguars will open the schedule with a game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28.

The Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans will be playing their first regular-season games in England. San Diego faced New Orleans in 2008, which was only the second year the National Football League played a regular-season game in London.

The Chargers' last game in London, a 37-32 loss to New Orleans in Wembley Stadium on October 26, 2008, was a quarterback duel between Philip Rivers, who completed 25 of 40 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns, and the Saints' Drew Brees, who completed 20 of 41 passes for 339 yards and three scores.

The Dolphins have played more game in London than any team but the Jaguars. While the Jaguars are familiar with the far away game, this will be the first time ever that the Eagles play outside of the United States.

Of those teams, Carolina also has not played in London. In fact, all of the games ticketed for London look to be, on paper nine months out, solid matchups. "We will be doing a lot of leg-work during this offseason to ensure we make that week as normal as possible for our team, but we are excited as an organization to be part of this game". NFL UK will announce ticketing details on January 18, and fans can also sign up for more information at chargers.com/london.

Guptill smashes NZ to victory over Pakistan
Imam-ul-Haq, in for the injured Fakhar Zaman , was out for two in the fourth over and Azhar Ali followed five balls later for six. Earlier, Pakistan recovered well from a precarious 39/3 by the 11th over to 246/9 at the end of their stipulated 50 overs.

There will be three consecutive weeks of matches in London. Muscular tight ends coach Dan Campbell became the interim coach, sparking a brief revolution with his spirited one-on-one and two-on-two hitting drills during practices and back-to-back victories in his first two games.

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.

At home, they'll play the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"We wanted to do the three games back-to-back".

But the National Football League released the slate of games for 2018 on Thursday and the Redskins did not make the list. The Houston Texans have never played in London, but played an International Series game in Mexico City.
