I think they usually announce it around Thanksgiving in November.

I think they where announced around the 6th November last year. Should find out next month at least.

They like to give the teams involved around a years notice for planning so won't be long.

Not sure how many games they are planning.

During the BBC coverage, they had the NFL UK Chief on, can't remember what he said exactly but it was along the lines of 'hope to be able to announce something during the Bills/Jags game'.

I hope its at least 3 games again,anything less would be like a backwards step.

From things I've read in the news, most seem to think we may get 4 games next year.

It was after the Jags/Cowboys game last year as I can remember discussing with Neil Reynolds before we met the Jags who he thought we'd be playing next year. No of us picked the Bills!

Four games I think are expected next year, I can't recall where I read it but I'm sure they said it was only the rugby world cup that prevented us from having four games this year.

They want to try extra games overseas, I think they may go for three games here again next year with possibly another one in Germany.
I hear they are also toying with the idea of not giving the teams a bye week to see how things pan out when the teams return home.
Interesting times indeed.
Fingers crossed (for me anyway) that we get Packers @ Jaguars next year.

Hopefully some time in November, I think the Packers v Jags is on for 2016. I would expect there would be at least 3 games, possibly 4 next year too. Hope the Vikings come back (as a visiting team)

It was confirmed a few months ago that isnt one of the games.
