“The passion our UK fans have shown for the NFL is overwhelming,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “We are very appreciative of the strong and growing fan support, not only for the games, but for all of the related NFL events we host in the UK throughout the year. We look forward to welcoming new fans to their first NFL game in 2016 and welcoming back thousands of others that are helping our sport grow to new levels of popularity in London and beyond.”
A fourth game, Houston at Oakland, is also part of the NFL International Series in 2016, but will be played at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, Mexico. The game is set for Monday night, November 21, 2016 (ESPN/Televisa).
