Jaguars to play the Bengals in London?
I got a letter in the mail this week thanking me for being a Jaguars season ticket holder. Included in the letter was a poster that included a list of the teams that the Jaguars would play at home during the 2012 season and it was only seven teams. A note under that said that preseason teams and AFC North team was to be determined. There was one major problem with that statement, the AFC North team isn't to be determined. If you know how the NFL schedule works every team plays the teams in it's division twice and then one division in the AFC and one in the NFC. That makes up 14 games of the 16 game season, the other two games are played againist teams from the other two divsions that finished in the same place. With that being the case the Jaguars would play the Bengals from the AFC North.
Mr Khan has been very out spoken about his desire for the Jaguars to play in London and to expand their international appeal. Which I'm all in favor of but not if it cost us a home game. I understand that it's one less game that the Jaguars have to worry about selling tickets but the season is already so short. Just in case they do have a game in London though I've already started working on my wife for a London trip.
