Jaguars Replace Vikings As Top Candidates To Play In London, According To Report

The Vikings are no longer the top candidate to play multiple home games in London over the next few years, as it looks like that honor now belongs to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As recently as this past weekend the Vikings were rumored to be scheduled for multiple home games at Wembley Stadium in London as their new stadium was under construction, but as the SB Nation Vikings' blog Daily Norseman points out, now that honor belongs to the Jags. An AP source has said that Jacksonville is going to play multiple home games in London beginning in 2013, one per year for four years.

There have been five NFL games played in London and the St. Louis Rams are scheduled to host the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28 this season.
