CHICAGO -- The NFL announced Tuesday a second London game during the 2013 season, hosted by the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings will host the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 29th.

There already was a London game scheduled in 2013 between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the San Francisco 49ers, as the league continues to test the viability of the London market.

The game between the Jags and 49ers, announced by the NFL last week, will take place at London's historic Wembley Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013. The contest is the Jaguars' first in the United Kingdom, as the team previously had committed to play one regular-season home game in the United Kingdom in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. All of those games will be played at Wembley.

To be honest I'd rather not see a franchise, if it's based in London would the stadium fill up every home game? I don't think so at this time. I think it will need a few more years yet.

I think it would be tough to place an NFL franchise overseas. With all the travel, expenses, and time change, it would be difficult for the league to approve it. At least for the near future. 10 years from now it's possible. I think it depends on Goodell, because it's his idea of expanding the game across the world. I know the games in London have created a vast interest in American Football and it would allow the league to make more $.

I am interested to see how the NFL handles this matter over the next several years. But for now I think all we will see are a few of these games in London.
