London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - The NFL finalized the three matchups for next year's regular-season games in London, England.

Earlier this month, the league announced that Jacksonville, Atlanta and Oakland would be the "host" teams for the 2014 games at Wembley Stadium. The opponents were named on Thursday.

The Jaguars will face the Dallas Cowboys, while the Falcons will take on the Detroit Lions and the Raiders will square off against the Miami Dolphins.

Dates and times will be determined at a later date.

"Our fans in the UK continue to demonstrate their passion for more football," said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in a statement. "Next year for the first time we will play three regular-season games in London. We have scheduled three attractive games with four teams playing in their first International Series game. The growing enthusiasm for the NFL internationally is exciting and we look forward to continuing to respond to this interest in our game."

The NFL is playing its second game this season in London this Sunday, as the Jaguars are set to battle the San Francisco 49ers. Earlier this season, the Minnesota Vikings claimed a 34-27 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers before 83,518 fans at Wembley.

Jacksonville has committed to playing one home game in London for four straight seasons, starting this year. Miami will make its second visit to England next year. The Dolphins were the home team for a matchup with the New York Giants in the first NFL regular-season London game back in 2007.

Dallas, Detroit, Atlanta and Oakland will play in London for the first time next year.
