Eagles versus Jaguars matchup in London is officially set
The Philadelphia Eagles are officially set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on October 28th.
Get your passport’s ready, Philadelphia Eagles fans. On October 28th, the Eagles will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in at Wembley Stadium in London. For the first time in franchise history, the Eagles will be playing overseas. And the good news is that they won’t be the ones who lose a home game because of it. Talk about a win-win situation.
The Eagles versus Jaguars game is set to be a lot better than anybody could’ve ever imagined. While the Eagles are the defending NFC Champions, the Jaguars were very close to also winning their conference championship in the AFC.
While the Eagles head to London for the first time, the Jaguars are no strangers to playing the game overseas. This will be Jacksonville’s sixth appearance at Wembley stadium since 2013. They are currently 3-2 in games during the international series, recently blowing out the Baltimore Ravens 44-7 last September.
While it is cool to see the Eagles in London for the first time, one of their own will be getting sort of a homecoming. Eagles running back Jay Ajayi is a London-born player, despite coming out of college from Boise State. In fact, he was just at Wembley Stadium not too long ago with a familiar friend.
Lombardi takes on London:
The reunion in London should be fun for Ajayi and the rest of the team. Let’s just hope that the time difference doesn’t take a toll on the player’s bodies and minds for multiple weeks. After all, the time difference can be harmful to the players if they do not adapt well.
