NFL games played in London have been a controversial topic for fans and players alike. And it could become even more controversial if one trend continues this weekend.
Following the three games this season that have been played overseas, all six teams that participated in games in London lost their next contest. Despite having a bye week after their game in England, all of those NFL teams dropped their next game – both straight up and against the spread (ATS).
The two teams this could affect in Week 11 are the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars. The Texans take on the Baltimore Ravens as 4.5-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and the Jaguars are getting three points as they visit the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
So far this season, the Chicago Bears, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams have all seen the same fate following their trip across the pond. They suffered losses in their following game, even with the bye week prior to their next contest.
With last week's game between the Texans and Jaguars being the final London game of the 2019 season, that leaves two more chances to either buck this trend or make it a clean sweep.
