Aye it's a good matchup.

Bit disappointed in the London games. How come there's only two this year?

Contract with Wembley has expired, I think.

Bit of a shame that. Would be nice to get more games over here.

Selfishly hoping for as few prime time games for Buffalo as possible so I can actually watch them live, 4 are rumoured with New Orleans away on Thanksgiving confirmed. 

Didn't want the Thursday night opener at Tampa so glad to have avoided that.

Weird how the schedule works out isn’t it. Kansas City are now going to be starting and ending their season against Cleveland @AmericanFan

That is interesting, but I guess I missed it this offseason when the Browns got moved to the NFC?

If London doesn't have a team by 2030 I'll be a bit surprised.

Why do they bother building all this stuff up when it gets leaked either in bits or wholesale? Bills entire schedule is available and assume most if not all other teams similar. 

Can't complain too much, 3 of first 4 and 3 of last 4 at home (9 home games this year) . Away to Tennessee for a third year running which is an odd schedule quirk.

Me too. They’ll figure the logistics out eventually.

Funnily enough, Lawrence going to Jacksonville and turning them into a force may slow down that venture.

For sure.

The NFL has waited far too long to expand. Yeah, it's nice to have an even number of 32, but it's leaving money on the table by not having more teams.

You’d probably need to go to 34 though, 17 in each conference. Which means you need another market in the States.

I’d want the London franchise to lose every single game. No time for it at all

San Antonio would be a prime candidate for an NFL team as it's the 7th largest city in the US but remains to be seen whether the Texans would want a team in their 'market'. I'm assuming San Antonio is Texans & not Cowboys market due to Houston being the closer of the two.

Imo the next NFL team is going be a re-location of someone with the likely victim being the Jags.

No it's Dallas' market.  Texas is Dallas' market... including Houston.

No problem there. Plenty of options. The more games they can jam on TV, the more $ to go around.

Correct. San Antonio could easily have a team and already has a facility in the Alamodome. 

There aren't a ton of Texans fans outside of Houston here in Texas. Sure, they exist, but it's not like it is with the Cowboys.

I honestly think they'd go up to 36 rather than 34. 6 divisions of 6.

 

In terms of getting to the 17 games you'd play:

- 7 divisional games (Play 3 opponents once and 2 H+A)

- Play all the teams in one other division on a 5-year rotation (3 H, 3 A)

- Play the remaining 4 teams who finished in the same place as you (2H, 2A)
