LONDON—In the latest effort by the NFL to expand the sport of football internationally, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders held a postseason exhibition game Friday at London’s Wembley Stadium. “Today was a fantastic opportunity for the fans in England to see the Jaguars and Raiders play a full game as both teams prepare to head into the offseason,” league commissioner Roger Goodell said of the postseason exhibition, which Jacksonville won 24-21 in overtime in front of a sold-out crowd of 90,000 spectators. “It was a great turnout, and as always, it provided a chance for the teams to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses coming out of the regular season.” Goodell added that, based on the overwhelming success of the overseas matchup, the league is planning to add three more London exhibition games to the postseason schedule.
