Will the Super Bowl winners pass through London during 2019 NFL season?

Leigh Copson 6 Jun 2019

Eight NFL teams will be ‘crossing the pond’ later this year for four more NFL International Series Games, but for one of them will this stop in London be part of their road to Super Bowl glory?


The NFL broke new ground in 2007 when it hosted its first ever regular season game on British soil, with the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins going head-to-head at a rain-soaked Wembley Stadium.

The match-up was hardly a classic, but it is widely remembered for one big thing – the Giants’ victory in London breathed new life into their season and they went on to reach the Super Bowl, where they upset New England and prevented the Patriots from completing a perfect unbeaten season.

However, since that showdown between the Giants and the Dolphins no team has visited London and then gone on to play in the NFL’s biggest game, although some have gone close to making it to the season finale while others have made to the playoffs only to fall short.

So could that change this year? Will one of the eight teams heading to London head to Miami next February and lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy? The bookmakers believe the answer to that question could be ‘yes’!

The Los Angeles Rams fell agonisingly short last season as the New England Patriots followed the Chicago Bears’ defensive blueprint to shut down Jared Goff & Co. and win one of the dullest games in Super Bowl history, but the bookmakers believe the Rams will be able to exorcise those demons next February, with William Hill pricing them up as joint 8/1 second favourites.

Hot on their heels in the betting are a Chicago team who went from worst to first in the NFC North last season, making an incredible turnaround under first-year head coach Matt Nagy that was finally halted when their one Achilles heel all season – the kicker – drilled a potential game-winning field goal off both the upright and the crossbar in a playoff defeat to Philadelphia.

There have been a few changes in the Bears ranks since that night, and while they have drifted in the outright betting in recent months, the bookies still believe the new ‘Monsters of the Midway’ can be major players next season, and for that reason the London-bound Bears are 16/1 contenders. 

However, beyond the Rams and the Bears the bookies have very little confidence in any of the other six teams that are heading to the English capital for a regular season game in 2019.

The Houston Texans are next up in outright betting when it comes to London-bound teams but they are out at 33/1 with William Hill, while both the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars are out at 40/1.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are considered 50/1 shots for Super Bowl glory and if you are fans of Oakland and Cincinnati you may want to look away now because the Raiders and Bengals are being well and truly written off at 66/1 and 100/1 respectively.
