The Miami Dolphins will play the New Orleans Saints in London on October 1, the league announced Friday.
This will be the fourth time Miami has played at Wembley Stadium, including the third time in four years.
There will be three other NFL games in London in 2017.
One player who is looking forward to the game is Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi, who was born in London.
Traditionally teams have taken their bye weeks the week following the game. But teams can request a bye week closer to the middle of the season.
