Get ready for some early morning NFL football in 2015.
The NFL finalized the schedule of the three London games on Thursday, and they will all start at 9:30 a.m. ET. That means fans from the United States can essentially enjoy a "quadruple-header" of televised games on Oct. 4, Oct. 25, and Nov. 1.
The NFL tested out the different timing of the game in Week 8 of the 2014 season with Atlanta and Detroit facing off early. For folks like myself on the West Coast, that meant NFL football starting as the sun came up.
The Bills-Jags matchup will be distributed over a digital platform and be available worldwide, it was announced at the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix.
The early morning start puts a different spotlight on the London games, with a national audience able to see them without any competition. The extra "window" of games also provides something for a league that is always looking for new properties. We'd be surprised if these early morning games don't become a tradition for the NFL in years to come.
