There already is a London game scheduled in 2013 between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the San Francisco 49ers, as the league continues to test the viability of the London market.
The game between the Jags and 49ers, announced by the NFL last week, will take place at London's historic Wembley Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013. The contest is the Jaguars' first in the United Kingdom, as the team previously had committed to play one regular-season home game in the United Kingdom in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. All of those games will be played at Wembley.
