PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The Philadelphia will spread their wings and head overseas for a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018 in Wembley Stadium.
The National Football League confirmed news on Twitter Thursday morning.
ESPN’s Tim McManus reports the game will be considered an away game for the Eagles, meaning the Eagles will still play 8 games at Lincoln Financial Field in 2018.
The date of the London game has not yet been announced, but the NFL says the game will either fall on Week 7 or 8, on October 21 or October 28.
Kickoff time has not yet been announced.
