The NFL has scheduled arguably its most impressive slate of London games yet in an announcement at Tottenham's new stadium.

The Seahawks-Raiders matchup is set in stone with an Oct. 14 date, and the Eagles-Jaguars game will be either Oct. 21 or Oct. 28. Last year, the Mexico City game between the Raiders and Patriots was announced February 1. The NFL has a deal with the Premier League's Tottenham Hotspur to hold at least two games at their new stadium in Northumberland Park starting in 2018.

The NFL's International Series consists of games played both in London and Mexico City.

Waller, NFL executive vice-president of events and worldwide, said: "I think we are ready, we have definitely learned a lot in the 11 years we have been doing this".

"Since we last visited London in 2008, the NFL's popularity has continued to grow in the UK".

Gridiron fans will be able to sample the action once again at Wembley, as well as at Tottenham Hotspur's brand new stadium.

The three "road" teams are visiting London for the first time and mean that 29 of the league's 32 franchises have now played in the British capital.

The Raiders, Jaguars and Chargers will be considered the home team in their respective games in London.

This marks the second time that the Chargers will play in London.

And fans wishing to buy tickets for NFL London 2018 will have to wait a while to get their hands on them. Three games will be played at the venue in a future year to make up for it.

The Jaguars will be targeting a fourth consecutive victory at their second home. Additionally, fans can sign up at www.chargers.com/london for the latest information about the Chargers trip overseas to London.
