The NFL is headed to England — again! Week 7 has some major clashes, as the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers renew their long-standing rivalry! Plus, the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams stop over in the UK for a spot of tea and a football game! Click to see the whole schedule!
Better get the DVR ready! First up is the battle of two of titans of the Midwest, as the 1-5 Chicago Bears take on the 3-2 Green Bay Packers. The Bears need to go on one heck of a winning streak to make the playoffs, so maybe a win over the Pack will spark such a run.
The Bears and Packers’ main NFC North rival, the Minnesota Vikings, are back after a bye week and they put their perfect record on the line when they challenge the Philadelphia Eagles. The Tom Brady Comeback Tour continues as the 39-year-old quarterback leads the New England Patriots to Steel City to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Perhaps the oddest and most interesting match this week is the combination of New York City, Los Angeles and London. This tri-city extravaganza is happening courtesy of the NFL, as the L.A. Rams will play the New York Giants in Twickenham Stadium in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
“Twickenham is definitely a suburban, residential venue, and so it offers a very different experience for fans,” Mark Waller, the NFL’s executive vice president for international, told CBS News. “I think it’s going to be fascinating and interesting for our fans to give us feedback on how that experience will compare to what many of them will already have seen and known at Wembley.” The main question everyone’s really asking is — Will Odell Beckham Jr. take the Giants kicking net out on an international date?
Fans will have to tune into the NFL Network to catch that early morning game. Check out the rest of the schedule below!

Arizona better rest up. After the Cardinals faced the New York Jets, the redbirds were able to reach a 3-3 record (even with the Jets Brandon Marshall making a did-you-see-that level catch.) Arizona went on to win that game and they’ll have their hands full when they take on the Seattle Seahawks in a battle of the NFC West birds. Will Arizona give Seattle its second loss, or will the Seahawks clip the Cardinals’ wings?
