The Jacksonville Jaguars will again have two London matchups in back-to-back weeks, as they did in the 2023-24 season. Opponents, dates, & betting odds; here’s what we currently know.

Book those flights and reserve those rooms, Duval. We have London dates, ladies and gentlemen! After being the first team in NFL history to play two London games in back-to-back weeks in the 2023 season, the Jacksonville Jaguars are continuing the trend in 2024.

On early Wednesday, the league officially announced its full international schedule for 2024 on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football broadcast. The full, remaining NFL schedule is set to be released on Wednesday night at 8 pm on NFL Network, ESPN2, and streamed on NFL+.

Here’s a look at each international game to be played this season.

Jacksonville will face the Chicago Bears and rookie QB Caleb Williams at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, October 13th in Week 6, as the visiting team. They’ll then stay across the pond and face the New England Patriots and rookie QB Drake Maye at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, October 20th in Week 7, as the home team.

Both games will be broadcast at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time. Both matchups will be broadcast on NFL Network.

As many may remember, the process of playing two London games in back-to-back weeks proved to be a competitive advantage for the 2023 Jaguars. At a time when the team was struggling at home and needed to “be away from distractions around Jacksonville” to reset, they were able to win a quasi-home game at Wembley Stadium over the Atlanta Falcons to kick the London trip off. The team was also able to avoid playing an away game in a boisterous Buffalo and ended up going 2-0 in those two international games after beating the Bills 25-20 at Tottenham Stadium.

DraftKings Sportsbook already has odds for the international games listed, with the Jaguars currently set as .5 point underdogs against the Bears in essentially what’s listed as a pick-em game and 5-point favorites over the Patriots. Get your bets in now before those lines move.

Excited about the way the London schedule has worked out for the Jaguars, Duval?
