    International Series 2010 - match ups

    Now that the final season standings are set we should, in the very near future, find out the teams involved in the two international games this year.

    Current favourites as home teams are the Jags and also 49ers. NFLUK forum has a strong buzz about Washington playing the Jags. Mention ( speculated by the studio presenters and not hard fact ) was made on Sky Sports last night about the loser of the Dallas/Philly game being the other road team to face the 49ers.

    Course until its finally announced then nothing is definite but currently no mention of the Vikes being a contender as we're not down to play the Jags or 49ers next season

    Anglo,

    Will you go to either of the games? I went to the Saints game and had a great day. 4 teams this year so I have a small hope that the Vikes might be a team especially if Brett is still playing, he would be a big draw.

    As long as it is not the Vikings, I don't care who goes.

    I can't see any way that the Vikings would lose a home game if Favre is still playing. The NFL is desperate to get the Vikings a new stadium and taking a home game away from Minneapolis won't help that effort.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I`d love to see the Vikes in London, but like mnvikes4ever said, only if its as an away team. I think as a small market team, desperate for a new stadium, the NFL won`t let us lose a home game overseas. if they do, it really means they have no interest in the MINNESOTA Vikings.

    Now confirmed as 49ers hosting the Broncos, now to see what the second game may be, assuming that still goes ahead.

    I don't like Germany, but with the country being right next door, I'd love for them to give a game to the Germans, as well.

    After all, they where the country that had 4 of the 5 NFL Europe teams before it folded, with the other one being the Amsterdam Admirals.

    And it'd make for a decent drive.

    Thinking Packers - Patriots here.

    This game does very little to me, though. I wouldn't travel 20 miles to see that game, let alone all the way to the UK.
