So long as the NFL sees London as a potential market for an NFL franchise, they will continue to have at least one-two games per year there, but thankfully, it doesn’t appear as though the Bengals will have any involvement with it in the near future.

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dallas Cowboys will likely face the Jacksonville  Jaguars in London next year:

The Cowboys are the leading contender to face the Jaguars next year in London, according to league sources. An announcement could come as early as Thursday, as the league would like to finalize plans for the game before the end of the week.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has wanted to play in London, and it’s the most attractive game on Jacksonville’s schedule. After this season, in which the Jaguars are winless, the NFL wants to match Jacksonville with a marquee franchise such as the Cowboys.

 

This season is the first year that two games will take place at Wembley Stadium in London. The Minnesota Vikings beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-27 in Week 4.

Next year, the NFL has scheduled three games, with the Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders all set to take part.
