JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars already knew they would play the Houston Texans in London in 2019.
Now, they know when.
The Jaguars-Texans 2019 International Series matchup at London’s Wembley Stadium will be played Sunday, November 3, at 9:30 a.m. That date means the game will be played in Week 9 of the ’19 season.
The league had announced that the Texans would be the Jaguars’ London opponent early this offseason. The exact date and time were not announced until Wednesday.
The game will mark the seventh consecutive season the Jaguars have played a home game at Wembley, and it also will mark their seventh different opponent there. It’s the second time in four seasons the opponent has been a team from the AFC South. The Jaguars played the AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts at Wembley in 2016.
The Jaguars’ previous Wembley opponents: San Francisco (2013), Dallas (2014), Buffalo (2015), Indianapolis (2016), Baltimore (2017) and Philadelphia (2018). The Jaguars are 3-3 all-time at Wembley, winning three consecutive games from 2015-2017.
The Jaguars made history on August 21, 2012, by becoming the first NFL team to commit to playing four home games at Wembley. Jaguars Owner Shad Khan, along with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, announced that the Jaguars would play one game each season in the United Kingdom from 2013-16. That deal was later extended through 2020.
The Jaguars’ footprint in London continues to grow, as the team has registered over 90,000 fans in the U.K. and are the third-most popular NFL team in merchandise sales.
