Published

on

Ahead of the full 2024 schedule release coming later Wednesday evening, the NFL announced the five “International Series” games on Wednesday morning. This year the International Series features games in three countries, including the NFL’s first-ever game in Brazil, which is the first of the five games.

Here are the International Series games for the 2024 NFL season.

Week 1: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers

In a number of firsts, the International Series begins in Week 1 this season, with the Packers and the Eagles squaring off in Brazil. This will the first NFL game in that nation, as well as the first NFL game in South America.

The game is also the rare Friday affair for the league, as the game will take place on Friday night, with a kickoff time of 8:15 p.m. Eastern on September 6. The game will also be on Peacock, as well as NFL+.

Week 5: New York Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings

Aaron Rodgers is headed back to London. The Jets and the Vikings will play the first of three games in London, with this game to take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. While we expect Rodgers will be under center for the Jets when this game kicks off, we will have to wait and see whether it is Sam Darnold, or rookie J.J. McCarthy, taking the snaps for Minnesota.

This game is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Eastern on Sunday, October 6.

Week 6: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Chicago Bears

For the second-straight year, the Jaguars will play back-to-back games in London. The first is in Week 6 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where Trevor Lawrence and company will take on the Chicago Bears.

Caleb Williams is one of many new faces in Chicago, as the team made a number of moves in free agency and the draft. Moves such as drafting Williams and Rome Odunze in the first round, and pairing them with free agent wide receiver Keenan Allen, have created significant buzz around the team heading into the summer months.

The game will kick off at 9:30 a.m. Eastern on Sunday, October 13.

Week 7: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. New England Patriots

Not only will the Jaguars play two straight games in London, but in all likelihood they will play two straight games against rookie quarterbacks. In Week 7 Jacksonville will play the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium in London, and with the Patriots having drafted Drake Maye with the third-overall selection, there is every expectation that Maye will be under center for New England in Week 7.

This game will kick off at 9:30 a.m. Eastern on Sunday, October 20.

Week 10: New York Giants vs. Carolina Panthers

The final International Series game on the 2024 NFL schedule sees the league return to Germany. After two games were played in Frankfurt last season, the New York Giants and the Carolina Panthers will square off in Munich, a city that hosted a game back in 2022.

This is going to be the first International Series game for Bryce Young, as the second-year passer hopes to take a big step forward in 2024. As for the New York Giants, they will enter this game with an unblemished 3-0 International Series record.

The game is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Eastern on Sunday, November 10.
