I am pretty sure Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will insist on two marquee games to introduce his new stadium and I expect the two best games to be there.

Those games at Wembley ain't bad either, especially with two teams that are yet to play in London.

Raiders will be in Mexico and thank God for that.
I could see the two you list at Wembley but not the two Tottenham ones.

Given the stadium delays, I don't think Levy is in much of a position to go demanding marquee games. That won't be how it works. Plus if there is an absolute marquee game (and I doubt it) I think they would probably rather have that one in the larger capacity Wembley. Whereas Bucs-Panthers seems better for a smaller stadium. The Panthers are one of the smallest UK fanbases, and the Bucs after a decade of irrelevance aren't a huge draw right now. Safer to have that in the smaller stadium, I reckon.

I can't see Bears-Rams in particular being anything other than SNF or the Game of the Week at 9:25pm.
