Raiders to play home game in London against Seahawks

Raiders to play home game in London against Seahawks

The dates and times of Seattle's other 15 games will be announced by the league in April.

The NFL announced the slate of games that will be played in London for the 2018 season Thursday.

It marks the first time the Seahawks, Eagles and Titans have played in London. There are over 75,000 United Kingdom fans of the Jaguars, according to the team.

Oakland Raiders will take on Seattle Seahawks on October 14 at the 62,000-seater stadium, with the National Football League announcing a further two matches to be played at Wembley at the end of October.

Iran's supreme leader accuses US & Britain of trying to overthrow Islamic republic
Demonstrations broke out across Iran last month fueled by anger at the lackluster economy and official corruption. This story was first published on CNN .com, " 3,700 people were arrested during Iran protests, lawmaker says ".


Which game comes first has not yet been decided but the fixtures are the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Philadelphia Eagles and the Los Angeles Charges versus the Tennessee Titans.

Spurs' 61,000 capacity arena is yet to be completed, but will be hosting the first of the games. Every team has to go over to London to expand the NFL's brand. "We will play an additional game at Tottenham in a future season, over and above the planned two per year, to make up for this". San Diego faced New Orleans in 2008, which was only the second year the National Football League played a regular-season game in London.

The Seahawks have reached the playoffs in six of the last seasons, and won the Super Bowl in 2014.

Almost three decades earlier, the Chargers also helped expand the league's profile in a more unorthodox fashion, playing the St. Louis Cardinals in a preseason game known as the Mainichi Star Bowl.

The three teams who haven't traveled should start planning now. This will be part of a three-game set in London.

In 2015, the Dolphins lost to the New York Jets, 27-14.

On October 14 the Raiders will play the Seahawks in London. That means the Panthers would have to play an away game in London, and there aren't any logical matches. Last season, a record four regular season contests were held in London. All three of the designated road teams will be making their first trip to London for a regular-season game.

We'll leave the past in the past, though, and look ahead to an enticing 2018 lineup.
