The NFL announced today that a third game will be added to the slate of games played across the pond in London. 

The Jaguars, Falcons and Raiders will each play a home game at Wembley Stadium in 2014. The dates and opponents for the games will be announced later this season. 

"Our fans in the UK have continued to demonstrate that they love football and want more," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. "Both of this year's games in London sold out quickly. The fan enthusiasm for our sport continues to grow. By playing two games in the UK this year, we are creating more fans. We hope that with three games in London next year we will attract even more people to our game."

A record crowd of 83,000 saw the Vikings beat the Steelers 34-27 earlier this month. The Jaguars and 49ers will play in London later this season.
