The NFL has announced the three games to take place in the international series at Wembley in 2015.

Next year's matches feature a divisional match for the first time ever, as well as games on consecutive Sundays for the first time.

Three teams, the Jacksonville Jaguars (who play Sunday), Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions, were part of this year's international series.

On 4 October 2015, the Dolphins will face AFC East rivals the New York Jets, who play for the first time in London. The Jaguars, playing for a third consecutive year, will then host the Buffalo Bills on 25 October, with the Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions going head-to-head a week later on 1 November.

With the addition of the Jets, Bills and Chiefs, none of who have appeared in the UK previously, 20 of the 32 NFL franchises will have played in the International Series since its inception in 2007.

“We are very appreciative of the outstanding support from our fans in the UK, not only for the games at Wembley, but for all of the related NFL events we have hosted throughout the city,” said NFL Executive Vice President of International Mark Waller.

"We believe we have a great 2015 schedule that will continue to attract new fans to our sport and strengthen the bonds with our existing fans. To provide UK fans the opportunity to see games on consecutive weekends, to see new teams, and to attend a division game, which feature some of the most passionate rivalries in our sport, are signs of the growth and depth of our UK fan base."
