Dallas, Detroit, Miami to play NFL London in 2014
No NFL games, including even the Jaguars, should be wasted by playing in London.

If they were to get their own team and all visting teams got their bye week following the game I dont see what the issue is.

Why would they get a bye for playing in London? Teams don't even get a bye before playing a Thursday night game, which is waaaaaaaaaay more taxing on the players. Now if it were a Thursday night game in London, then the visiting team would need a bye prior to that game.

The bye after the game would help offset the extended travel time. It certainly doesnt have to happen but I think it would be helpful
