Found October 08, 2013 on Universal Takeover Sports Network:
The NFL had decided to add a third game to be played in London for the regular 2014 season. Announced Tuesday, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders will each play one home game in London at the Wembley Stadium next year. With the popularity of the games overseas, commissioner Roger Goodell commented on the love London’s population have gained for football. “Our fans in the UK have continued to demonstrate that they love football and want more.  Both of this year’s games in London sold out quickly.  The fan enthusiasm for our sport continues to grow. By playing two games in the UK this year, we are creating more fans.  We hope that with three games in London next year we will attract even more people to our game.” The league has become very welcoming in the United Kingdom as support grows for the NFL.  When the Minnesota Vikings won 34-27 against the Pittsburgh Steelers it had drew a crowd of 83,000 people.  A festival was held for football fans in London which drew about 520,000 people. Opponents and dates for the three teams were not named yet.  It will be the most games the league has played abroad in one year.
