National Football League announces three 2018 London matchups, none involving Dolphins

Fireworks explode over the River Thames and the Palace of Westminster's Elizabeth Tower known as Big Ben as the New Year's Day celebrations begin in London. London plans to beef up its police presence and close down some roads for New Year's Eve after

The NFL announced its slate of 2018 regular season games in London on Thursday, and the Washington Redskins aren't on the bill.

The move to play three games instead of four at just Tottenham's stadium coincides with the team's ambitions to become home to a UK-based National Football League team.

The Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars while the Titans will challenge the Los Angeles Chargers, with both games to be contested at Wembley Stadium.

English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium is the site of the first game of the 2018 London schedule. The Jaguars, whose owner Shad Khan also owns EFL Championship side Fulham FC, and Chargers will serve as the home teams for those games.

Seattle's home opponents next year are the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys. The Seahawks are hoping a trip to Charlotte to play the Panthers can be scheduled for week 5, so they can shorten the flight to London by going directly from North Carolina. In fact, all of the games ticketed for London look to be, on paper nine months out, solid matchups. The exact order of those two games will be announced at a later date.

They did play a preseason game in London in 1991 against the Buffalo Bills as part of the now-defunct American Bowl series that was held in 1986-2005.

Browns swipe Eliot Wolf from Packers front office
Current Browns general manager worked for Wolf as a scout, and later Director of College Scouting from 1991-1998 for the Packers. The Cleveland Browns have made a concerted effort over the last several weeks to refigure their front office with new personnel.

"We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the United Kingdom", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Its a good list of quarterback for the Brits, who haven't seen a ton of playoff-caliber football in recent years.

The three games are heavy on West Coast teams.

"We wanted to do the three games back-to-back".

For the second season in a row, the Indianapolis Colts will be playing all 16 of their regular season games in the western hemisphere in 2018. There's still a chance that Denver could play a game in Mexico, though.
