Bears-Raiders game in London set for Oct

11 a.m. ET: Not a leak, but we do know the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs will head to Mexico in Week 11, an AFC West matchup that highlights the NFL's global slate that the league just released. They beat the Cowboys 17-6 in a preseason contest on August 2, 1986 and defeated the Buccaneers 24-18 in a regular-season clash on October 23, 2011.

Information regarding the purchase of tickets for the Tottenham game will be released at a later date.

The Chicago Bears and the Oakland Raiders will play the first NFL game at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 6, the league announced Wednesday. The stadium, which is home to the Tottenham Hotspur of the Premier League, features a soccer pitch that divides and retracts, revealing a synthetic turf underneath to be used for NFL games.

This looks like a good second-half game of the season for the Bears, who just a year ago played the Lions twice in three weeks.

Last November, the National Football League moved the Chiefs' game against the Rams from Mexico City to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum because of poor field conditions at Estadio Azteca.

The game will mark the seventh consecutive season the Jaguars have played a home game at Wembley, and it also will mark their seventh different opponent there. Los Angeles played in three nationally televised games in 2018.
