The Bills have known for a while they were set to play one of their nine home games this upcoming season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, but it was not known who Buffalo was set to face, and when on the schedule they'd head overseas. The league announced all those details on Wednesday.

The NFL is set to have the Bills taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5 of the regular season on Oct. 8, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. ET.

This is just the second time in franchise history the Bills will head overseas to play a game in London, but the second time they will play the Jaguars. The first game took place back in 2015 at Wembley Stadium, where Jacksonville beat Buffalo, 34-31. E.J. Manuel got the start for the Bills in that game, going 24-of-42 for 298 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions.

For Bills fans, it will be a chance to get a look at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, home of Tottenham Hotspur F.C. of the English Premier League.

As for the Jaguars, their matchup with the Bills will be the second of two-straight games played this upcoming season in London. They will be part of the first NFL game in London this season in Week 4 when they host the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium.

Meanwhile, the Tennessee Titans will also host a home game this upcoming season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when they host Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
