The league’s decision to play all of their games in the United States was an effort to “focus on the well-being of players, personnel and fans.”
The Jacksonville Jaguars were scheduled to play two home games in London’s Wembley Stadium this season. Two other NFL games were set to be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, between the Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons.
There was also a game scheduled to play at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, with the Arizona Cardinals being the home team.
The NFL announced it will will release its full 17-game regular-season schedule later in the week.
