The Oakland Raiders have played games internationally the past two years, enjoying trips to Mexico City in 2016 and 2017, but in 2018 the team will travel across the Atlantic to face the Seattle Seahawks. It’s the Silver and Black’s first trip back to England since 2014 – Derek Carr and Khalil Mack’s rookie season – when they took the field against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.
The showdown with the Seahawks is set to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new stadium, and will feature what should be an entertaining duel between Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Derek Carr. Before the game kicks off in Week 6, Raiders tight end Jared Cook traveled across the world to visit the Hotspur’s new facility, serving as the team’s ambassador for the NFL’s United Kingdom promo tour. While there, Cook also met with fans to sign autographs, and take some selfies.
It’s crazy to think we’re a little more than a month away from the start of the regular season, which means Week 6 will be here before we know it.
