Take Your Seats: NFL London Previews

NFL Expert and American Expat Mike Carlson looks at the London matchups

Published on October 03, 2019

October 6: Bears vs Raiders at White Hart Lane

The big story for this one is the debut of White Hart Lane, with its made-to-measure football field, as an NFL venue. The sight-lines are great, the noise will be deafening, and only limited sideline space will bother photographers. The Raiders have to be better than they were at Wembley last year but the Bears ought to be too much for them.

October 13: Panthers vs Bucs at White Hart Lane

A rare divisional matchup in London, and one the Panthers ought to be able to handle, unless Bruce Arians QB-whispers enough in Jameis Winston's head to show Carolina something they haven't seen. A couple of quick TDs to put the pressure on the Panthers would be interesting.

October 27: Bengals vs Rams at Wembley

On paper a one-sided match-up which will be attractive if you want to see up close how Sean McVay cuts up a non-Patriots' defense.

November 3: Houston vs Jacksonville at Wembley

A second divisional matchup, and a good one, because you are going to see some of the best defensive players in the league, while watching to see whether Nick Foles has made a difference, and if this is they year the Texans' offense clicks. Early over/under may be around 36 points, but last year's Super Bowl turned out to be a hell of a game, didn't it?
