Goodell says NFL hoping to add 2nd game in London
Sunday, October 9, 2011
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is interested in adding a second regular-season game in London and says the move will be discussed at the owners meetings this week.
Goodell spoke before the Buffalo Bills' game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, saying the league would like to build on the success it's had playing in London.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the Chicago Bears at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 23 in the fifth regular-season game in the British capital.
The commissioner said the league was happy with the game it played in Mexico City in 2005 -- the first regular-season game outside the United States -- but noted he is focusing on adding a regular-season game in England.
He said the issue will be addressed at the meetings in Houston that begin Tuesday.
