  • Eagles to play Jaguars in London in 2018 regular season

The new stadium is on track to open in August, and so hosting a game in October is a state of confidence from the club that the new ground is on pace to be on time and ready to go.

The series will begin in Week 6 with a Seahawks-Oakland Raiders game at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, built with cooperation and input by the NFL.

The Seahawks will have their longest-ever road trip next season.

NFL London announced three games will be played in the capital during the 2018 season.

The Eagles - the NFC No 1 seed this season - will also make their London debut, facing "London's team" the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley in either Week Seven or Eight.

South Korea to ban cryptocurrency trading amid fears of tax evasion
As of midday in NY on Monday, bitcoin was last down 7.1 per cent, at $14,980 on the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp exchange. The South Korean government has been working on plans for a potential ban on cryptocurrency trading for some time now.

The NFL had planned to stage two games in the 2018 season at Tottenham, which was runner-up in the Premier League last season. "The fans have demonstrated outstanding support and passion for the National Football League over the past 11 seasons and we look forward to some great games in London this year".

The three visiting teams heading overseas next year - the Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans - are all newcomers to playing in London.

The Jaguars are no strangers to London, owning a 3-2 record since first appearing in the International Series in 2013.

Game times for each contest will be announced at a later date. They were one of just a handful of teams that hadn't played there and the league has been pushing for others to get over there.

The Eagles, Seahawks and Titans all have never played in London before.

Canada tamps down worries about US NAFTA withdrawal
USA media are reporting that officials in Ottawa are increasingly convinced that Trump will pull his country out of the NAFTA. The Canadian and Mexican currencies both weakened against the USA dollar after Reuters broke the news.

This will be the Eagles' first-ever regular-season game overseas.

London isn't calling for the Ravens this season.

The Jaguars will "host" the Eagles on either October 21 or 28.

The Jaguars will be targeting a fourth consecutive victory at their second home. So the good news for the Eagles and their fans is that the team won't lose an opportunity to play at Lincoln Financial Field with their trip across the Atlantic Ocean. Both will be considered home games, meaning the team will play one fewer game in StubHub Center in 2018 and 2019.

Julian Assange diplomatic status bid rejected by UK
Assange later taunted after Lasso's loss that he would "cordially invite Lasso to leave Ecuador within 30 days". The UK did not grant that request, nor are we in talks with Ecuador on this matter.
