NFL to Consider 4th London Game in 2015
From 2007 until 2012, the NFL played one game in London. Last season, they played two and this this year, it’ll be three. Are you sensing a pattern?
The league is expected to discuss the possibility of playing four games in London at the owners meetings in Orlando this week, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.
NFL wants to continue to test London. Could mean having games on back-to-back weekends in ’15. And maybe 1 at a stadium other than Wembley.

According to Breer, there won’t be a formal vote, but the NFL has reportedly been pleased with the results of the games held thus far at Wembley Stadium.
Some even think that London could get its own franchise in the future.
According to Pro Football Talk, the NFL could choose to create a package of games overseas to air on Sunday mornings in the U.S., and be sold separately to the league’s TV partners,
One of the three games this year, Falcons-Lions in Week 8, will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET. The other two are Raiders vs. Dolphins in Week 4 and Cowboys vs. Jaguars in Week 10. Those will start at the usual 1 p.m. ET.
