JACKSONVILLE — The Green Bay Packers could be headed across the pond for the first time ever.  And they’ll face the Jaguars.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union expects Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Kahn to announce a new, four-year deal with the NFL to play one “home” game per season in England (2017-2020). O’Halloran also expects Kahn to introduce the the Packers as the Jaguars’ opponent for their London game in 2016.

The reported Packers-Jaguars game will count as a home game for Jacksonville. Once officially announced, the Packers will become the 21st NFL team to play in London, according to John Breech of CBSSports.com.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers should be happy about the news. In March, Rodgers revealed his bucket list and playing at Wembley Stadium was on it.
