Five for Friday: Best NFL games at Wembley Stadium in London

Contact ReporterThe Baltimore Sun

The Ravens’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars will be the first of four in London this season as the NFL continues to try to expand its reach globally. This is the 11th consecutive year the league has held a regular-season game at Wembley Stadium, part of an agreement that runs until 2020.

While the series hasn’t exactly shown off the NFL’s best teams (the Jaguars have the most appearances, after all), a recent study by ESPN's FiveThirtyEight shows that London games have not been lacking in quality.

Since the annual series started in 2007, ten of the 17 games (59 percent) have been decided by one score. Just 35 percent of all NFL games played during that span have been decided by 8 points or fewer.
