Chargers to play Titans in London in 2018

The NFL announced Thursday the Eagles will be playing the Jacksonville Jaguars at London's Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28 as part of the league's annual United Kingdom series. The Eagles will play the visitor to the home team Jaguars while the Raiders and Seahawks will play as will the Chargers and Titans.

However, NFL executive vice-president Mark Waller revealed Tottenham's new stadium will host three matches in a future season to compensate for the shortfall in 2018-19. Two will be staged at Wembley following the first game which will be played at Tottenham Hotspur's new 61,000-seat stadium.

The Seattle Seahawks are scheduled to face the Oakland Raiders, and the Los Angeles Chargers will take on the Tennessee Titans in another game.

21 (Week 4) and Sunday, Oct. 28, consecutive games will be played at Wembley Stadium.

Seattle will be the designated "road" team, meaning the Seahawks did not give up one of their eight home games for next season. So, where will the Rams play?

Of those teams, Carolina also has not played in London.

Harris, who was elected to the assembly in a special election in November 2015, fended off a primary challenge in September 2016. When the not-for-profit got the discretionary funding, she rerouted the funds-$11,400-for her personal use.

The 2018 slate represents a significant improvement on last year's games, which provided European fans with four one-sided affairs. The order of those games will be announced closer to the season. "We are looking forward to showcasing our team to the National Football League fans in London and throughout Europe".

The number of games is a reduction from the four contested during the 2017 season.

The following two weeks see a return to Wembley, and two more first time appearances in London.

The Chargers' trip to London will be the sixth game played overseas in franchise history and second in the regular season. If they end up being boring games, it's hard to say the National Football League didn't try its best to send over a trio of good games.

At home, they'll play the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
