Chargers will return to London during 2018 season

The NFL made it official Thursday, setting the details for the Eagles' first appearance in the league's International Series next season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Seattle Seahawks will play a road game against the Oakland Raiders in London on October 14, 2018, the NFL UK announced Thursday.

It isn't much of a surprise that the Eagles will be in London next season.

2018's other London games will take place on October 21 and 28, with the Philadelphia Eagles taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans taking on the Los Angeles Chargers, though which game happens on which date has yet to be decided.

"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 worldwide fans was pretty cool", said Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

"The announcement of the first game of the NFL's 2018 London Games to take place at our new home heralds the commencement of our 10-year partnership". They've sold out 130 straight games and have a waiting list a mile long for people who want season tickets. Pitted against Cincinnati (3-4), the Redskins (4-3) played the Bengals to a penalty-strewn, mistake-filled tie in a game that lasted almost four hours.

"We wanted to do the three games back-to-back". New York Giants in Berlin, Germany; July 1996 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers in Tokyo, Japan; August 1999 vs. Denver Broncos in Sydney, Australia.

Philadelphia has yet to appear in a London game since the National Football League began sending teams overseas in 2007.

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

"It's been 10 years since we last played in London, and other than the outcome of the game, the experience there among the global fans was pretty cool", Rivers said in the team's statement. Including giving up a home game to play in London, Miami ventured the fourth-most miles in the league at 27,520.

Ticketing details will be announced on January 18 and more details on attending the games can be found here.
