The Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars are hosts for the NFL’s two London games in the resumption of the International Series in 2021.

Atlanta hosts the New York Jets in Week 5 and the Jaguars play the Miami Dolphins the following week.

The full NFL schedule is due to be released Wednesday night.

The league played 28 games in London from 2007-19 before the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the NFL International Series last season.

The Falcons and Jaguars will each play a “home” game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The stadium hosted two NFL games in 2019, with the then-Oakland Raiders beating the Chicago Bears 24-21 on Oct. 6 and the Carolina Panthers defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 37-26 on Oct. 13. Each game drew about 60,000 fans.

The NFL will not return to Mexico City in 2021, however, because the COVID-19 situation there is still considered too risky, according to the report.
