Hi mate, I'm not from London but sure a few other guys will be that way who may know of some places.

However I doubt there will be a bar that shows the Chargers games each week. Will be pubs/bars that will show the NFL games chosen by Sky each week if you want to catch a game.

Not sure if this site is any use to you - http://www.matchpint.co.uk/watch-live-NFL

You may have heard of it already, but there's NFL Gamepass which you can watch all the games live or on demand from each week (apart from the two games Sky tv show on a Sunday evening which are blacked out for 24 hours after the conclusion of those games). Link for it is here: https://gamepass.nfl.com/nflgp/secure/packages?ttv=0

Welcome to the UK! You've caught the exact moment that the autumn cold sets in, I'm afraid. As has been mentioned, the only place to watch NFL on TV this year is Sky, which requires a subscription. They show the the TNF, SNF and MNF games and pick one game in each of the two regular sunday afternoon slots; so watching the Chargers on TV relies on Sky picking one of their games (or when they're playing primetime).

As mentioned above, there the internet subscription service Gamepass, which is just the international version of Sunday Ticket. The only limitation is that the Sunday afternoon games shown on Sky are blacked out live on gamepass (but you can view the replays from mid week).

As for where to watch sky, many pubs will show live sport on sky, but NFL being rather niche in the UK, it'll come down to whether you can convince the landlord to change the channel over from Football, cricket or rugby. You'll probably struggle to see the early game in pubs for the next month or so since it clashes with the Rugby World Cup.

I think there are a few sports bars that will reliably show NFL; there's one on Haymarket (near Trafalgar square), and various outposts of http://www.sportsbarandgrill.co.uk/ (I'm pretty sure the one in Marylebone shows NFL. I hear Bodeans show NFL as well.

I'm sure I read somewhere that they stopped showing all the gamepass games and only show Sky nowadays; have they changed back?
