Just two days into the offseason, Jaguars make NFL history


The NFL season came to a close Sunday with the Chiefs beating the 49ers in the Super Bowl. All is quiet on the NFL front.

Except it isn't.

Ian Rapoport tweeted out that the Jaguars will become the first team in NFL history to play multiple games overseas in 2020.

They will be back-to-back games in which the Jaguars will be the home team in each game, leaving just six traditional home games in Jacksonville for the Jags next season.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement, "There is no better time than now to capitalize on the opportunity to play two home games in London, where we will continue to develop our loyal and growing fan base there and throughout the UK, during a period in which I will be focused heavily on creating a new downtown experience that we want, need, and must have here. We have an exceptional opportunity right in front of us for Jacksonville to meet its potential and be the city I imagined we'd become when I arrived here in 2011. I am optimistic and believe it will happen."

The dates and opponents of those games have yet to be determined.
