Russell Wilson reacts to Broncos London trip to face Jaguars
The NFL released it’s three game London-based scheduled for the 2022 NFL season on Wednesday, as well as a game in Mexico City and Germany. The NFL is branching out and attempting to draw international crowds into the sport. These games provide people who otherwise may have never had the opportunity to see the best football players in the world in person. Most of the reactions from the players have been positive in regards to these international games. New Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson shared his thoughts on Denver’s scheduled London game against the Jaguars.
“It’s a tremendous honor and we are excited about it. … I’ve been able to play in London before at Wembley Stadium and it was amazing. It’s like an international Super Bowl.”
Wilson is looked upon as one of the premier leaders in the league. One would have to imagine it is music to the NFL’s ears hearing him make such positive comments like that.
Russell Wilson and the Broncos will play the Jaguars on October 30th at Wembley Stadium.
The Saints and Vikings will battle at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 2nd, and the Packers and Giants will go head-to-head there as well on October 9th.
The first ever Germany-based game will feature the Buccaneers and Seahawks. That game will be played at FC Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena on November 13th. Sending Tom Brady to represent the NFL in the first ever Germany game is a genius marketing ploy by the league without question.
Finally, the Cardinals and 49ers will square off in what projects to be a competitive matchup in Mexico City on November 21st.
