Mexico is in many ways more appealing than London because it is a shorter flight and no/small time difference. London is 8 hours for the west coast teams and that is a lot.

Seen some speculation that the Raiders might be coming back to London. Due to play the Rams next season but as the home team, so if they are going to give up another home game it would have to be London.

Legit.

It was in the LA newspapers and on Rams forums today.

Have two west coast teams ever played each other in London?

If the Raiders do come over, I’d expect them to give up The Browns or The Colts as they wouldn’t be huge demand games.

Not been two west coast as such, but Ram/Cards last year is near enough to be to western side of the country

Looking at the Jaguars "prime" home games in 2018:

New England
Pittsburgh
Houston
Philadelphia

Those teams are stacked with talent and offer world-class players the fans would love to see in London. If we don't get one of those games, I will be really disappointed. Even by giving up 1 great game, Jaguars fans back home in Florida still get to see 3 great teams come to their stadium.

Instead, I bet in London we will get one of the Jaguars' home games against the Jets, Redskins, Colts or Titans.

Jags vs Titans is a lesser game? It contains a 1/3 of the AFC's playoffs teams.....

I'm predicting:

Jags v Texans
Chargers v Titans

This would give us 2 new teams that haven't been to London yet.

The Jags v Texans - Maybe we could name it the London Apathy Bowl...
