Detroit Lions: Date set for 2014 game at London's Wembley Stadium

The NFL announced on Thursday the dates for the three NFL games in London next season.

The Lions will play the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 26 at Wembley Stadium. It had been announced previously that the Lions would be the road team in London, but a specific date had not been set.

This means the Lions bye week will be Nov. 2, a good time about midway through the season.

Because it’s a road game, the Lions will still play eight games at Ford Field in 2014.

In the two other London games the Oakland Raiders will face the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 28 and the Dallas Cowboys will play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov. 9.

The NFL has been playing regular season games at Wembley since 2007.
