This year's series of three National Football League games in London will kick-off at Tottenham's new stadium with the Oakland Raiders hosting the Seattle Seahawks on October 14.

The Silver and Black given up a home game to play overseas in four of the past five seasons, and will continue to do so until they move to Las Vegas in 2020.

The team announced it will be playing the Los Angeles Chargers at London's Wembley Stadium sometime in October for the 2018 season. The Jaguars are back again, this time hosting the Eagles and Carson Wentz, who should face a fiery Jacksonville defense in another intriguing game.

The NFL's 2018 London slate includes three playoff teams, a perennial contender, and two potential risers next season. "However, we have not yet finalized the schedule of 2018 global games for London or Mexico at this time". There weren't plans for Tennessee to give up a home game to play in London, which is surely good news for Titans fans.

Of those teams, Carolina also has not played in London. The dates will be released in mid-late April.

Seattle played a game outside the United States in 2012, but it was not part of the International Series.

It is the first time the Seahawks have played in London.

The most brutal stretch came in Weeks 2-4, when the Dolphins went to Los Angeles, New York and London for consecutive games.

Eagles-Jaguars and Titans-Chargers will be played at Wembley Stadium.

27 at EverBank Field and the Jaguars usually don't play at home the week before because of the stadium retrofitting.

The Seahawks announced that ticket information will be announced by NFL UK on January 18. Fans can sign up at www.chargers.com/london for the latest information on the Chargers' trip to London.
