Following the conclusion of the NFL’s venture to England this season with Sunday’s Browns-Vikings game, Cleveland’s first appearance across the pond, only six NFL teams haven’t made the journey across the Atlantic. According to the league, the NFL wants to have those six teams play in London during the 2018 season.

Alistair Kirkwood, the managing director of NFL UK, said as much during an interview with ESPN.

“[There is] a desire to try to get the other six teams that haven’t been over as well,” Kirkwood said when asked about the 2018 slate of overseas games. “It’s not the be-all and end-all, but you kind of like to get closer to have all 32 teams over. That seems like a really nice narrative.”

    The NFL could make this easier by adding a fifth London game next season on “Black Friday” with most likely a 2:00 PM ET (7:00 PM local time) start. That can be an extra game on NBC or ESPN.

    The day they send one of the home games I buy every year to London is the day I cancel my season tickets. Because you know they sure aren’t going to give me a price break for the “home” game I won’t be attending.
