Twitter Rumor has Bills playing against the Dolphins in London Next year

Recommended Posts

The Bills vs Dolphins matchup could very well be one to watch in coming years. I like their coaching staff a lot and they have stockpiled a lot of FA money and draft picks. This is supposed to be a good draft year for QB as well. Time will tell, but they may well overtake the Jets and make the AFCE a 3 way race in 2020 if they nail those picks. On another note, they must be scratching their heads over Tannehill's sudden emergence as a solid NFL QB.

And Green Bay has never played an international game. This is wrong.

 

I expect this to change in 2020 too. Doubt it is a Packers home game.... but I think they will play in London as a road team this year.

Bills played in London 5 years ago (2015). There are 3 games per year in London meaning 12 teams played in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 including multiple Jags games.  I think it is someone else's turn to play there. If the Bills DO play there and Bills "home" game I hope it is a December game since those games tend to sell poorly and it is to a non-conference team.  We already play in North Cuba once a year.

 

There are FOUR games a year actually. Four in 2017 and four this year. 2018 was only 3 scheduled but that was because of uncertainty about the Tottenham Stadium completion date.

 

The NFL is contracted for 2 games at Wembley in 2020 and 2 games at Tottenham.

 

2020 is the last year for which Wembley is presently contracted. The NFL would like to extend is my understanding but it is tied to what Jacksonville want to do. If the Jags continue to have designs on London longer term as a home base or as one of two home bases (has been discussed - split their schedule and play x4 in London and x4 in Jax) then an extension of the Wembley deal is all but certain. If the Jags step back from their London plans (unlikely) then the NFL has 3 options:

 

i. reduce it's commitment to London down to 2 games per year;

ii. extend at Wembley;

iii. extend their commitment at Tottenham

I get that the Bills need to take a turn... but with all these west trips, this is a tough season for it to happen.

Yeah. How effed up is it that the NFL picks two teams that are playing both the AFC West and the NFC West to go to London to play each other?  Ridiculous. 

Roger Goodell has been reading posts at ‘The Stadium Wall’.  Time to make the Bills pay for the Buffalo fans’ disrespect of the NFL, its executives, and (God bless) the New England Patriots.

That's why I think it will be the Arizona game that goes to London.

I dont mind it actually As long as it is the MIA Away game.  I dont want to lose a home game

The Dolphins already agreed to host a home game in 2020 in either London or Mexico City along with the Falcons. Since they won't have Miami do 2 International games that means that we will be the away team if we are in fact facing Miami for an International game.

This what happens when you make the play-offs 2 out of 3 years and gain the national media's interest!  Expect more non- 1PM Sunday games.

Not really. Every time I check out the London games it's trash teams like the Jags or Raiders

Well that sucks. MIA is one of my favorite away games of the year for a road trip ( okay, air lol). Especially when it’s in the second half of the season. I would absolutely consider going to a game in London, but not going to Mexico City. Maybe if the game was in Cozumel ...

The Spurs stadium is mint. The work they put into making it an NFL stadium was more than worth it.

 

IF the Bills do play in London I'd prefer it to be at Tottenham.

I wish NFL stadiums would do what Spurs did with that 100’ bar over there, practically no lines. Anybody know if they enforce the 3rd quarter drinking cutoff when the game is in UK?

As a home or road game?

 

If we do play Miami internationally, it will be as a road team in Mexico City.

"The Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins announced they will host international games this year, the Falcons in London and the Dolphins in Mexico City. The Jacksonville Jaguars are annual hosts of a game in London."

If it was, he made up for that in the NFC Championship game against New Orleans in 2018.

You have a rare perspective here, I’m sure. 

 

I hate this, unless it gives me a pass to go to London. I don’t mind the NFL playing in London, just leave the Bills out of it! 

well, the Bills are part of the NFL...

Let the rest fend for themselves! Leave my Bills alone! 

 

Seriously, I don’t like it for anyone. BUT, if they insist on continuing it, I hope they get teams help with scheduling. Do they often or ever get their bye the following week? It sucks to lose a home game, and the travel hassles are very real. Mexico City is almost as bad, but without quite the same disadvantage.

Barf-o-rama. As if they don't have enough long-ass road trips already. Trips out to Vegas, Denver, LA, and Arizona, and now across the pond to foggy ol' Londontown. They might win the Ultimate Road Dogs award next season, we'll see if they rack up the most travel miles of any team.

Teams always get the bye week following a London game.
