Jacksonville Jaguars in London: a look back at NFL history

The NFL International Series began in 2007. The league brings one game per season to the UK, showcasing American Football to a global audience.

The International Series expanded to Germany and Mexico, and now it includes more games played in London. The capital has built a new stadium to accommodate the growth of the sport. This shows how popular the sport is becoming and how crucial it is to have proper facilities.

One team that has become a staple of these games is the Jacksonville Jaguars. They have been coming to London as part of the series every year for 11 years, starting in 2013.

The Jaguars will be playing their 12th game in London this year and have an even record on British soil. They have experienced massive wins and shocking losses over the decade.

On 27th October 2013, the Jaguars started their London journey by playing against the San Francisco 49ers at Wembley Stadium. It was there that 83,559 fans saw the 49ers easily defeat Jacksonville 42-10 in a one-sided game.

That season the 49ers were Super Bowl contenders. They made it to the NFC Championship game, narrowly losing out to the Seattle Seahawks.

Comparably, the Jags finished with a 4-12 record and were 14th in the conference out of 16 teams. The result now becomes a bit more understandable.

Since then, Jacksonville has played a range of teams each year, from more Super Bowl contenders to struggling opposition. In that time, Jacksonville has experienced successful periods. This includes their current position which saw them reach the Divisional Round last year in the playoffs.

Why do the Jacksonville Jaguars play in London?

Many UK NFL fans wonder why the league chooses one team every year to travel abroad for this series. It seems strange at first glance.

But in fact, it's because of the team owner, Shahid Khan, and his sports group, which includes other teams he owns.

Khan is a Pakistani-American billionaire who bought the Jaguars in 2012. This prompted the start of his sports empire which now contains the major professional wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

The connection between the Jaguars and London came together in 2013 when Khan bought Premier League football club, Fulham FC.

That then lines up with the timing of which the Jags played their first NFL London Game in 2013.

The bond between Khan and the Jaguars has grown stronger since then. There was a time when Khan was thinking of moving the Jaguars to London. These discussions happened when Khan was trying to buy Wembley Stadium.

Khan's withdrawal ultimately caused the deal to fall through before the vote could take place. However, the Jags still effectively have a home at the National Stadium as they keep coming back there every year.

Jacksonville Jaguars London record

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ London record sits at six wins and five losses in their eleven games played.

As we know, they started with a loss to the 49ers in 2013. After losing to the Dallas Cowboys in 2014, they finally won their first game in 2015 against the Buffalo Bills.

The biggest win they achieved was against the Baltimore Ravens in 2017 when they won 44-7 in a blowout victory. The team had a successful season. They ended with a 10-6 record and reached the playoffs Divisional Round. This was the third time in team history that they reached this stage.

In their latest game in 2023, the Jags beat the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium with a 23-7 victory.
