Report: NFL to increase games in London for 2017

The NFL has committed to having regular-season games in London for several years now, and that isn’t going to change in 2017.

In fact, the league will have a total of four games in London next season, according to Will Gavin of Talksport2.

The NFL has scheduled three London games in each of the last three seasons, so four games in one campaign would be a new high. The first London game was in 2007

The Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins all played in England this season. The Bengals-Redskins matchup ended in a tie.

Fan interest for American football in England has been strong, and one of the best ways to determine if an actual franchise could survive overseas is to have as many games in the London area as possible.
