Seahawks to make their London debut in 2018 vs. Raiders

Spurs' new home comes equipped with NFL-sized locker rooms to accommodate the larger squads, and a synthetic playing surface just for gridiron. The Chargers were probably the best team to not make the playoffs this season, and the Titans made it and won a wild-card game last week.

"Spurs" new ground will stage one game in its first year of opening and in 2019 we look forward to going back to staging at least four National Football League games in London.

Raiders have been selected as the home team - as they have been in all previous global games - which means they're missing out on another game in Oakland during their final seasons before the move to Las Vegas.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Oakland Raiders, Tottenham Hotspur, Oct. 14. The NFL have already staged 21 regular-season games in London and Waller believes a franchise could be possible in the next "four to five years".

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper (89) heads for the end zone to score a touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers during an National Football League game at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017. Jacksonville will host the Philadelphia Eagles in one of those weeks, while the Los Angeles Chargers will host the Tennessee Titans. "We're excited to introduce the Los Angeles Chargers brand, in person, to football fans in the United Kingdom this year, and to fans in our 2019 destination as well".

The NFL kicked off its series of regular-season games in London in 2007, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on their way to winning the Super Bowl.

Seattle's first-round pick in the 2012 draft (16th overall), Irvin signed with the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent prior to the 2016 season. Both players are now with the Raiders, with Lynch entering the second year of a two-year deal set to pay him $4 million in 2018.

This will be the Chargers' sixth game overseas in franchise history and second in the regular season. It has worked out resoundingly for him and the Jaguars brand in London. And we all know about the Raiders' eventual move to Las Vegas in the next few years. Knowing that these are two of the biggest fan bases on the West Coast.

The team's remaining home games for the next two years will be played at the Bolts' temporary home, the StubHub Center.
