The ATLANTA FALCONS will host the DETROIT LIONS in Week 8 on Sunday, October 26 at 9:30 a.m. ET, 1:30 p.m. UK, with live national coverage in the United States on FOX. The new start time will give U.S. fans a fourth game window on an NFL Sunday for the first time while allowing a global audience to tune in at a new, earlier time.
“We are excited about playing three regular-season games in the UK for the first time and debuting a new game time that we expect to be a hit with fans on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world,” said MARK WALLER, NFL chief marketing officer.
The 2014 International Series will conclude in Week 10 on Sunday, November 9, when the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS host the DALLAS COWBOYS at 1:00 p.m. ET, 6:00 p.m. UK on FOX.
