The NFL’s International Series is back for a 15th season in 2022 with a set of five games, three of which will take place in London.
Since the International Series began in 2007, 31 of the NFL’s 32 teams have taken the field in another country, with games played in London and Mexico City. The 2022 International Series is a groundbreaking one as Germany will host its first-ever NFL game and the Packers will become the final NFL team to make their international debut when they face the Giants in London.
From just one game in London in 2007 to five games spanning three countries in 2022, the International Series continues to grow into a key staple of each NFL season.
With the International Series beginning in Week 4, here’s a closer look at each game that will be played in London during the 2022 season.

History of NFL London games
Aside from the COVID-impacted 2020 season, the NFL has played at least one game in London each season since 2007.
No team has participated in the NFL London games more than the Jaguars, who are set to play their ninth game across the pond this season. Jacksonville is 4-4 in its first eight games played in London.
This year marks the third trip to London for the Giants, Saints and Vikings — each team has posted a perfect 2-0 record in its first two games played in London.
The Broncos return to London for the first time since losing to the 49ers in 2010 while the Packers finally end their run as the only NFL team to have not played overseas. Both franchises will be in search of their first international win in 2022.
