The NFL announced its London games for the 2018 season, with Seattle playing its first-ever contest across the pond in an October 14 matchup with the Raiders at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

The Jaguars have committed to play at least one game in London every season until 2020.

The other games played in London next season will be Jaguars-Eagles and Titans-Chargers. This year will feature three games in the United Kingdom at three separate stadiums: Wembley, Twickenham and Tottenham Hotspur.

The National Football League has today announced the six teams that will be heading to London during the 2018 season.

This year, with no worldwide games and a full home schedule, the itinerary is much more manageable.

"We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the UK", NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said.

On Tuesday, foreign minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa said Ecuador was exploring mediation to solve the standoff. The Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) says they have granted naturalization to Julian Assange .

The Raiders played Miami in 2014 at London's Wembley Stadium in what was Dennis Allen's last game as head coach.

The three "road" teams are visiting London for the first time and mean that 29 of the league's 32 franchises have now played in the British capital. Both will be considered home games, meaning the team will play one fewer game in StubHub Center in 2018 and 2019. This year's new twist is to play games on three consecutive weekends.

The Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans will be playing their first regular-season games in England.

Spurs signed a 10-year agreement in 2015 to host two matches per season at their new home, which is being constructed to replace White Hart Lane.

The Jaguars are no strangers to London, owning a 3-2 record since first appearing in the International Series in 2013.
