The American football invasion will commence on September 28 when the Oakland Raiders face the Miami Dolphins.

Four weeks later, the Detroit Lions will play the Atlanta Falcons on October 26 and just two weeks later, the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars will meet.

The Raiders, Falcons and Jaguars will be designated as home teams for their respective contests. Jacksonville began a run of playing one home game a season for four years in London this season.

The NFL staged two games in London this year for the first time in league history, with the Minnesota Vikings defeating Pittsburgh 34-27 on September 29 before 83,518 fans at Wembley and the San Francisco 49ers ripped Jacksonville 42-10 on October 27 before 83,559.

The Dolphins will make their first trip to England next year since facing the New York Giants in 2007 in the first NFL regular-season game staged in London. Dallas, Detroit, Atlanta and Oakland will play in London for the first time in 2014.
