After Success Of London NFL Games, Goodell Thinking About Trying One Game A Year In Jacksonville

NEW YORK—Commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters Monday that given the popularity of NFL games played in London, the league is considering amending its 2014 schedule to include one game each year in Jacksonville, FL. “We believe there is an untapped market in Jacksonville for real American football played between two high-caliber teams,” said Goodell, who noted that there is actually another sport in Jacksonville that they call football, but it mostly involves the ball rolling around on the ground. “This could be a great way of introducing the league to a city that has never experienced the excitement of an authentic NFL game.
