2019 NFL International Series to feature five games

By Kevin Kelley -

The 2019 NFL International Series will feature five games, the NFL announced on Wednesday.

Four NFL games will be played in London, England, and one NFL game will be played in Mexico City, Mexico, in 2019.

Exact matchups were not announced, but the home teams will be the Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Chargers, Oakland Raiders, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have competed in the most International Series contests, six, and have a 3-3 record. The Oakland Raiders are 1-3 following four appearances.

Formerly in St. Louis and now in Los Angeles, the Rams have made three International Series appearances and are 1-2. The San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers are 1-1, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 0-2.

The International Series this season included three games in London at Wembley Stadium. The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Oakland Raiders 27-3, the Los Angeles Chargers nipped the Tennessee Titans 20-19, and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-18.

A fourth NFL International Series game in 2018 was scheduled to be played in Mexico City between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams. However, poor field conditions forced the game to be moved to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Rams’ home stadium.

Week 15 of the 2018 NFL season begins on Thursday, Dec. 13 with the Los Angeles Chargers traveling to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. The game is set for 8:20pm ET on FOX and the NFL Network.

All 32 teams will be in action this week. Two games are scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 15 and 12 games are scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 16. Week 15 concludes with New Orleans at Carolina in Monday Night Football.

thinking that the Rams will try to be in Mexico next year to make up for this season because if they did play there this year then another team imo would be the *home* team in the Mexico game next season

Green Bay, Carolina, and Houston are the only teams that haven’t played in London yet. Matchups that will definitely occur next year that will feature these teams and are candidates for London include:

Houston at Tampa Bay
Carolina at Tampa Bay
Houston at Jacksonville
Green Bay at LA Chargers
Houston at LA Chargers

Matchups that may also happen that might feature these teams:
Green Bay at Tampa Bay

If I had to guess, these three games will take place in London next year:
Carolina at Tampa Bay
Houston at Jacksonville
Green Bay at LA Chargers

I don’t think the NFL will put a divisional game in Mexico City or London. Too much of a disadvantage to the team losing the home game.

I think playing games outside of the US, is sad. Americans not getting to see their teams at home. Goodell, the worst.

exactly. I wouldn’t mind preseason games being played internationally, or maybe the Raiders since they might not have a home next year, but under normal circumstances, all regular season games should be played on American soil.
