My predictions

Tottenham Stadium:

Chicago Bears @ LA Rams
Green Bay Packers @ LA Chargers

Wembley Stadium:

Carolina @ Tampa Bay
Houston @ Jags
---------------------------------------------

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.

Having these expectations... In reality we'll probably end up with Jets @ Jags, Bucs @ Rams, Cardinals @ Bucs, Vikings @ Chargers....

A single team will never play two games in London in the same season. It isn't fair from a competitive advantage viewpoint and their opponents will never agree to it.

It could have happened in 2016 with the Redskins. The Rams were scheduled to play the same place finisher in the NFC East (turned out to be the Giants), and the Redskins were already slated to play the Bengals.

And there has been talk about the Jags playing home and away on consecutive weeks for the last couple of years.

That was indeed a close call but the NFL learned its lesson as they no longer announce the games before the full schedule is known.

That's not the reason why. They don't announce before the schedule, or not the full details, as the schedule is so hard to put together to make everyone fairly happy so they prefer not to restrict themselves with early announcements more than they need to.

I'd be delighted with those. On paper you have 3 very competitive games.

Yes they will. And it's basically a certainty in the next few years. Testing the interest, logistics and effects of a multiple week trip is one of the major next steps in the NFL testing process for a franchise

Chargers/Packers feels like a Fox "game of the week" or primetime match up so maybe not a game the NFL will move to the early window.
