NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The NFL released possible dates for international games in 2017. And, the schedule includes two dates for the New Orleans Saints vs. Miami Dolphins game.

The Saints will play the Dolphins in Wembley Stadium either Sunday, 9/24/17,  or Sunday,  10/1/17. The Saints will be considered the visiting team. So, it’s an “away” game, just really, really, really far away from the Superdome.

London will host four NFL games next season:

  • New Orleans Saints vs. Miami Dolphins in Wembley Stadium, either 9/24/17 or 10/1/17
  • Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars in Wembley Stadium, either 9/24/17 or 10/1/17
  • Minnesota Vikings vs. Cleveland Browns in Twickenham Stadium, either 10/22/17 or 10/29/17
  • Arizona Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Rams in Twickenham Stadium, either 10/22/17 or 10/29/17

The NFL will release the full schedule in spring.

The last time the Saints played at Wembley Stadium, the team beat the San Deigo Chargers 37-32.

The Saints are currently 5-8 and in third place in the NFC South Division. The team’s next game is against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona, Sunday at 3:05 p.m.
