There has been some speculation that the Jacksonville Jaguars could be one of the teams who would play a home game in London. In fact, new owner Shad Khan has expressed his interest in expanding the Jaguars brand internationally and wanted to play a game in London if possible. Khan compared growing the brand to what the English Premier League teams do in Europe, playing all over the region. Unfortunately for Khan, the Jaguars are going to have to wait until at least 2015 to play a home game in London because the St. Louis Rams will host a home game there for the next three years, according to a report by the St. Louis Dispatch.

The 2012 game will be a Rams "home" contest, meaning they will play only seven games next season in the Edward Jones Dome. It is also believed that this could be a multi-year arrangement with the Rams, not unlike the Buffalo Bills playing in Toronto.

Recently, the Rams posted on their official Facebook page that it indeed would be a multi-year arrangement and they would host a home game in London in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
