According to a report at NBCSports.com, the NFL will send two teams across the pond this year to take to the pitch in jolly old England. The official announcement naming London as the site is expected early next week, and the announcement of the two teams is planned for Super Bowl week in Miami.

The Sports Xchange has learned that Miami will be the “home” team during the 2007 season for a game likely to be played in London’s Wembley Stadium. That famous stadium has undergone a renovation and will seat 90,000 fans for the game. Wembley was the site of nine international preseason games from 1983-1993. The other option is 83,000-seat Twickenham Stadium.
The Dolphins’ opponent will be either the New York Giants or Buffalo Bills, but sources told The Sports Xchange the league is leaning toward having the Giants be the other team in the game. The official announcement naming London as the site is expected early next week, while the announcement of the two teams is planned for Super Bowl week in Miami.
Just in case you were wondering, the only other NFL game to be played outside of the United States was played on Oct. 2, 2005 when the Arizona Cardinals played San Francisco in Mexico City.
