NFL London schedule 2024: Teams, dates & times to know for UK’s International Series games | Sporting News United Kingdom

The NFL is bringing American football across the pond for another consecutive year.

Beginning in 2007, the NFL has played 36 games in the United Kingdom, giving the European fan base a taste of live-action American football.

The NFL continues its annual tradition with three games as a part of its 2024 regular season schedule. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will host two games and Wembley Stadium will host a third.

The Jaguars and Ravens starred in last year’s London schedule. Jacksonville won against the Falcons 23-7 and defeated the Bills 25-20 the next week. Baltimore downed the Titans 24-16 in the final London game of the week.

NFL London schedule 2024

Date Stadium Time (BST) Matchup
Oct. 6 (Week 5) Tottenham Hotspur Stadium 2:30 p.m. Jets vs. Vikings
Oct. 13 (Week 6) Tottenham Hotspur Stadium 2:30 p.m. Jaguars vs. Bears
Oct. 20 (Week 7) Wembley Stadium 2:30 p.m. Patriots vs. Jaguars

New York Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings

  • Date: Sunday, Oct. 6
  • Time: 9:30 a.m. ET
  • Location: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London

The Jets are playing the first London game of 2024 which will give England an up-close and personal look at Aaron Rodgers. The 39-year-old quarterback played just four snaps last season before suffering a torn Achilles, but if he returns to the lineup healthy, he could turn the Jets into a playoff contender.

Meanwhile, the Vikings are transitioning from Kirk Cousins to J.J. McCarthy at quarterback, which certainly dips their season expectations. McCarthy’s adjustment to the NFL will be a major factor in how quickly the Vikings can rebuild, and the Michigan product may endure some growing pains as he adjusts to the professional game.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Chicago Bears

  • Date: Sunday, Oct. 13
  • Time: 9:30 a.m. ET
  • Location: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London

There isn’t an NFL London schedule without the Jaguars. Jacksonville has played in the annual games every year since 2013. This season marks the 11th straight appearance across the pond.

Jacksonville missed out on the playoffs last year despite starting the season 8-3. It finished 1-5 as Trevor Lawrence battled a litany of injuries, and lost the AFC South lead to the Texans.

The Jaguars will face the Bears, who were underwhelming again last year but figure to improve starkly in 2024. Chicago owned the No. 1 pick via the Carolina Panthers, which earned the Bears the right to draft Caleb Williams. The team’s own pick at No. 9 landed them wide receiver Rome Odunze, so Chicago’s new offense could help make them a wild-card contender — especially if Williams is as good as advertised.

New England Patriots vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Date: Sunday, Oct. 20
  • Time: 9:30 a.m. ET
  • Location: Wembley Stadium, London

The Jaguars will stay over in London from Week 6 to Week 7 and face the Patriots at Wembley Stadium.

New England is another team breaking in a new quarterback in 2024, as Drake Maye figures to eventually start for the Patriots. Will he be in the lineup by the time Week 7 rolls around? If not, Jacoby Brissett will lead the post-Bill Belichick Patriots to London in the hopes of beating the Jaguars.
