As a member of the Dolphins earlier this year, Ajayi became the first London-born skill player to take the field for a regular-season game in his home city.

In the first of next season's match-ups on October 14, the Oakland Raiders will play host to the Seattle Seahawks at Tottenham's new stadium. Jaguars owner Shad Khan has preferred to play at 9:30 a.m. Jacksonville time (mid-afternoon London) to take advantage of a world-wide television audience.

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

Game times will be announced at a later date but it's reasonable to expect that, for the first time since the International Series began in 2007, two teams with wining records could meet. "We will play an additional game at Tottenham in a future season, over and above the planned two per year, to make up for this".

During the 2017 season, Eagles fans traveled extremely well to a pair of road games in Los Angeles against the Chargers and Rams, and will also be treated to a return trip to Southern California next season.

The Eagles are finally heading to London.

Tennessee Titans vs. Los Angeles Chargers, Wembley Stadium, Oct. 21 or 28. The other two will take place at Wembley Stadium, English soccer's national stadium, on October 21 or 28.

The announcement officially means the Raiders, Jaguars and Chargers will lose one local home game, dropping them to seven for the year.

Previous year saw four matches take place in London as the National Football League celebrated the tenth anniversary of the first games in the UK.

Tickets details will be released on January 18.
