Back-to-back London games possible for Jaguars with Bears in U.K.

The NFL announced Thursday that the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, and Jacksonville Jaguars will all play home games in London during the 2024 season, which raised the possibility that the Jaguars will again play back-to-back games overseas.

In October 2023, Jacksonville became the first team to play two international games in the same season when they played the Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills in London in consecutive weeks. The Week 4 game against the Falcons was designated as a home game, while the Week 5 game against the Bills was on the road.

“I think we want to see how it goes, what are some of the learnings from it, and I think if it works, we’d like for it to continue in the future,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said before the first of the two games.

The trip worked out well for Jacksonville with the team picking up back-to-back wins that sparked a win streak through the remainder of October. Still, the Jaguars were fortunate that good weather allowed them to practice outdoors leading up to a game against the Bills.

The Bears are one of nine road opponents for the Jaguars in 2024. While it remains to be seen who Jacksonville will host at Wembley Stadium, the Jaguars could theoretically be the team that faces the Bears at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The NFL typically announces the schedule for the upcoming season in May.
