07:14 AM ET 10.24 | Might it be America's Team traveling to the United Kingdom for some NFL football? While the Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Wembley Stadium, they already have a potential matchup waiting in London for next year. The Cowboys are the leading contender to face the Jaguars next year in London, according to league sources. An announcement could come as early as Thursday, as the league would like to finalize plans for the game before the end of the week. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has wanted to play in London, and it's the most attractive game on Jacksonville's schedule. After this season, in which the Jaguars are winless, the NFL wants to match Jacksonville with a marquee franchise such as the Cowboys.

Worked in London for about 9 mths. in 2008, me and another guy we wore jeans,denim shirts cowboy hats most of the time ......people would laugh at us and make silly comments about that way we dressed.

Playin in London is only good for th NFL Brass and some Londoner's, when I was there most of the games you could not even watch unless you had internet connection.

That guarantees the Cowboys won't go 0-16. HA!!

This London crap is stupid. Ripping home games from teams and the fans isn't a positive thing.

as long as the home team is Jacksonville, nobody in their fan base will notice, or even care!

As long as the result is different than the last time they played the Jags, I don't care where they play.


You can look it up.

Just a hunch....does the London Jaguars sound like it's a distinct possibility?

Sure it does. They're a terrible team right now, and there's no way a "good team" would uproot itself like that and alienate their fanbase and/or star players.

it is, but the good people of London don't want them either.

I did. No wonder I don't remember it. Kitna at QB (4 picks). Felix Jones the lead rusher for 22 yards. Butt ugly, but a typical home game back then for the Cowboys.

Super idea -- move the Boys' to London ... then they can be called England's Team! ...LMAO

They should change the home-team rules and allow the Cowboys to bring their cheerleaders.

Jet lag alone makes this a bad idea. You can only arrange so many byes to cover it.

I'll be glad when the Jerry Jones/Roger Goodell era is over.

That would throw off the curve for dental standards in England.

Of course they'll pronounce it 'jag-you-are.'

"Who cares" neck of the woods.
