New York Giants vs. St. Louis Rams in London next season? Unlikely, but possible

New, comments

Rams will host NFC East opponent that finishes in same divisional place as they do.

The New York Giants could play a game in London in 2016, according to the schedule of international games released today by the NFL, but it doesn't appear to be likely.

Here is the schedule:

The Rams will face the NFC East team that finishes 2015 in the same place the Rams finish in the NFC West, as determined by the NFL scheduling formula. The Rams (4-6) are currently in third placebehind the 8-2 Arizona Cardinals and 5-5 Seattle Seahawks.

There seems little likelihood that the Rams can win their division, so if the Giants emerge as NFC East champs then there would be no London trip for them. That might be a good idea, since the last time the Giants and Rams met there was a sideline fracas involving Odell Beckham Jr.

The Giants competed in the first NFL game held in London, defeating the Miami Dolphins, 13-10, on Oct. 28, 2007.

Twickenham Stadium, incidentally, is a venue the NFL has not previously used.

Your thoughts, Giants fans?
