The NFL’s London showcase continues in NFL’s Week 4 as the Dolphins and Saints do battle at Wembly Stadium, a 9:30 a.m. (2:30 p.m. local time) kickoff on the east coast of the United States.
The game, unlike last week’s Jaguars-Ravens game will not be streaming only, and will appear on Fox. It can be streamed on any cable-streaming device, like Xfinity, or can be watched at the FoxSports website.
In addition, Facebook will broadast the game as more and more internet based resources delve into the NFL. Last week, as the Jaguars offense pummelled the Ravens (and players on each side became the first to protest Donald Trump’s weekend statements and other racially driven issues) as the game was exclusively viewable on Amazon streaming services.
The game will pit two underachieving teams in Miami and New Orleans, the latter team serving as the “host of the game.” Both teams are looking to win and get back into the playoff races in their respective conferences, with both offenses also hoping to get back into productive form.
The game — which will force fantasy football players to remember to set their line ups a bit early Sunday — is the second of four London games this year. After the duel at Wembley in Week 4, two more games will take place at Twickenham Stadium on October 22 and 29.
Those games will pit the Cardinals and Rams in Week 7 and Vikings and Browns in Week 8.
The modern NFL “London Games” began in 2007 and have continues since, with rumors swirling every year that, eventually, London would acquire an NFL franchise. In all, 27 regular season games have been played in England — with the Jaguars appearing in five of them.
The Raiders and Patriots will also play internationally when their Week 11 Mexico game commenses.
