Ten various groups will take a trip abroad as part of this year’s series, which becomes part of the routine season schedule, consisting of 3 of the last 4 NFC clubs to reach the championship game.

Each of the 5 global video games provides a unique story, however which of the matches have the most juice? Here’s how we’d rank them:

Location: London (Wembley Stadium)
Date: Oct. 30 | Time: 9:30 a.m. ET | Stream: ESPN+

It’ll definitely be enjoyable to see Russell Wilson captaining his brand-new group, and Jacksonville must be enhanced under Doug Pederson, with Trevor Lawrence now surrounded with extra aid. But this will be the ninth time the Jaguars have actually appeared in London given that the NFL started hosting abroad video games; their return may be more luring if they were lastly embracing London as their brand-new house. There’s a possibility this will be more explosive than anticipated, however there are more appealing groups on the slate.

Location: London (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)
Date: Oct. 9 | Time: 9:30 a.m. ET | TELEVISION: NFL Network

On paper, this may sound uneven, with the Packers in contention mode and the Giants going into year among yet another reconstruct. But Aaron Rodgers and Co. will be making their London launching, including a wrinkle to the match, while New York will still be reasonably early in Brian Daboll’s experiment to raise Daniel Jones under center. Anything can take place overseas, and who’s to state novice pass rush Kayvon Thibodeaux will not solitarily threaten to distress A-Rod sans Davante Adams?

Location: Mexico City (Estadio Azteca)
Date: Nov. 21 | Time: 8:15 p.m. ET | TELEVISION: ESPN

This one fractures the leading 3 nearly solely since of its divisional aspect. As Thanksgiving approaches, the Cardinals and 49ers might well be fighting for a playoff area out of the NFC West, where the Rams will be safeguarding their Super Bowl title. Will Kyler Murray still be (gladly) under center for Arizona? Will Trey Lance be deep into a strong launching in San Francisco? It’s difficult to imagine this video game unfolding without drama of some sort. Mexico, buckle your safety belt!

Location: Munich (Allianz Arena)
Date: Nov. 13 | Time: 9:30 a.m. ET | TELEVISION: NFL Network

Germany will get its very first taste of live NFL action here, so it’s just suitable that Tom Brady will become part of the roll-out. No matter who Tampa Bay plays this year, all eyes will be on TB12’s “comeback” trip, particularly thinking about Bruce Arians is no longer running the program on the sidelines. The Bucs are still rather packed, and with Seattle, a minimum of there’s intrigue: is Pete Carroll actually rolling with Geno Smith or Drew Lock at QB, post-Russell Wilson? This figures to be a spirited match in any case.

Location: London (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)
Date: Oct. 2 | Time: 9:30 a.m. ET | TELEVISION: NFL Network

While Brady and the Bucs are a larger draw, this match has a more vibrant current history, from the “Minneapolis Miracle” to the Vikings’ 2019 overtime playoff win in New Orleans. Plus, in between Kirk Cousins, Jameis Winston, Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara, Justin Jefferson and Michael Thomas, there’s an underrated quantity of big-play capacity here. Both teams are type of enigma in the NFC, each promoting brand-new coaches however gifted lineups. Are they really playoff-caliber? This must be a strong early test.
