The Houston Texans will face the division-rival Jacksonville Jaguars in London November 3, 2019, the NFL announced today. Texans vs Jaguars Cheap Flights This marks the first time the Texans will play in the UK in franchise history.
The NFL will play two games at Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium and two at Wembley Stadium.
When the Texans cross the Atlantic Ocean next season to play the Jacksonville Jaguars, it will mark an unprecedented moment in franchise history.
The Texans have played an international game before, losing three years ago to the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City at Estadio Azteca, but this will be their first in London in what shapes up as the longest road trip in team history.
“Any time you have an opportunity to help the league grow the fan base outside the United States, it’s a real honor and privilege to introduce Texans football to those who haven’t seen us before,” Texans team president Jamey Rootes said. “The traveling Texans … we imagine they’ll have an interest in having a presence.”
The Houston Texans will play against the division-rival Jacksonville Jaguars in London in Week 9. The game will be played on Sunday, Nov. 3 at Wembley Stadium and kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. CT. The meeting replaces the Texans’ annual trip to Jacksonville as the Jaguars will be considered the home team.
“Excited to play in front of everyone across the pond!” Texans Pro Bowl defensive end J.J. Watt wrote on social media. “Hopefully Spurs stadium is done by then so we don’t have a schedule conflict at Wembley.”
The Jaguars, playing their seventh consecutive year in England under owner Shad Khan and having established a growing fan base in the United Kingdom, will be the designated home team. So, the Texans will have their usual slate of eight home games at NRG Stadium this fall.
“It probably does feel like a home game for the Jaguars,” Rootes said. “For us, it’s an away game. It’s just in a different location for us. We’re fortunate to be able to do this without sacrificing a home game. This is a rare opportunity for us to give our fans a full complement of Texans home games and have a game across the Atlantic.
“This is a very big game for us. Anytime you play inside the division, it’s high stakes. Certainly, it’s a business trip. For those who choose to enjoy and experience it, it’s one a one-of-a-kind opportunity.”
The other London games include the Carolina Panthers against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Chicago Bears against the Oakland Raiders and the Cincinnati Bengals against the Los Angeles Rams.
The Kansas City Chiefs will play the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico. The Chiefs and Rams were scheduled for Mexico City last season but the game was moved back to Los Angeles when the field at Estadio Azteca was not up to par.
Two of the four London Games will feature teams playing in the UK for the first time – the Texans and Carolina Panthers – and will bring the total number of NFL teams to have played in the UK to 31 in 28 games by the end of the 2019 season. The Jaguars will be playing a home game in London for the seventh-consecutive season.
The league also announced the match ups for the other four 2019 international regular season games – three in the UK and one in Mexico. The complete slate includes three divisional games and five playoff participants.
