That shouldn't be the case in 2018.
NFL London announced three games will be played in the capital during the 2018 season. If they end up being boring games, it's hard to say the National Football League didn't try its best to send over a trio of good games.
Kickoff times for the games were not announced on Thursday morning.
The Chargers' last game in London, a 37-32 loss to New Orleans in Wembley Stadium on October 26, 2008, was a quarterback duel between Philip Rivers, who completed 25 of 40 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns, and the Saints' Drew Brees, who completed 20 of 41 passes for 339 yards and three scores. But the Raiders are intriguing again with coach Jon Gruden, and could improve quickly with stars like quarterback Derek Carr and defensive end Khalil Mack. The Jaguars, on the other hand, have one of the league's best defences.
"It has been 10 years since we last played in London, and other than the outcome of the game back in 2008, the experience there among the global fans was pretty cool", said Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. That game will be on October 21 or October 28 at Wembley Stadium. Three of those teams (the Eagles, Jaguars and Titans) made the playoffs this season. The league held one game each year there from 2007 to 2012, then added a second annual game in 2013.
