NFL might have one team play two games in London in 2016

Thursday, October 22, 2015 8:28:20 AM America/Los_Angeles

The NFL is hoping to add a new wrinkle to the International Series in 2016: The league reportedly wants the same to team play in London twice next year.

Although nothing's set in stone, next year's plan would potentially involve a total of three games, but those three games would only involve a total of five teams because one team would be asked to play two games in London in consecutive weeks, according to NFL.com.

Overall, all three games would be played on three consecutive weeks.

If the NFL does end up sending one team to London for two games, that team won't lose out on two home games. The potential plan would be to have the team play one game as the "home" team and one game as the "away" team. The NFL is also considering having both games be "away" games.

Since the league's plans are tentative right now, it's not clear which team would have to play two games in London. The Jaguars are the only team under contract to play at least one game in London next year.

The NFL has been adding new wrinkles to the International Series since 2013, when the league moved two games to London for the first time. Before that, there was only one game played per season in London between 2007 and 2012.

In 2014, the league added a third game to the international schedule. The NFL also added two more wrinkles this season.

First, this year marks the first time that games will be held on consecutive weeks. After the Bills play the Jaguars in England this week, the Chiefs and Lions will follow suit with a game in London in Week 8.

The other new wrinkle is the television rights. The Bills-Jaguars game will be exclusively shown on Yahoo!, making it the first game ever to be only available online through streaming.
