Cowboys, Dolphins and Lions chosen for NFL's 2014 London games

Streeter Lecka

The league has announced the three contests to be played across the pond next season.

The National Football League has declared the three games being played over in London, England next season, per their official release.

The Dallas Cowboys will face the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders will square off, and the Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions will meet in Wembley Stadium to showcase the game internationally. Jacksonville, Oakland and Atlanta are the "home" teams in those games, which was announced a few weeks ago.

Jacksonville was the only certainty to be in this group, having agreed to play a home game in England every year through 2016. This will be the first time that Oakland or Atlanta is hosting one of these international affairs. The Raiders have only been to England once, back in 1990 for a preseason game.

This will be the first year of playing three games in London, showing that the NFL has an even deeper interest in England than ever before. The first time an NFL regular season contest was played in London was back in 2007, when the New York Giants opposed Miami. Since then, one game has been hosted by London each year until 2013, when two games were scheduled there.
