The NFL announced today that the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Baltimore Ravens at Wembley Stadium in Week 3 (Sept. 24) or Week 4 (Oct. 1) of the 2017 regular season. No decision has been made as to whether the Jaguars will have their Bye Week immediately following the London trip.

On Aug. 21, 2012, the Jaguars made history by becoming the first NFL team to commit to playing four home games at London's historic Wembley Stadium. Jaguars Owner Shad Khan, along with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, declared that the Jaguars would play one home game each season in the United Kingdom from 2013-16. On Oct. 15, 2015, Khan announced that the deal to play one game at Wembley Stadium had been extended through 2020. The NFL also committed to playing at least two games in Wembley each season through 2020, with an option to extend the deal through 2025.

The Ravens will be the Jaguars' fifth opponent in London and the first from the AFC North. The Jaguars are 2-2 in London and currently have a two-game win streak at Wembley Stadium after defeating the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, in Week 4, which was the Jaguars' first-ever divisional matchup played outside the United States.

Jacksonville beat Buffalo, 34-31, in Week 7 of the 2015 season to secure the club's first-ever victory on foreign soil.
