  1. Preview - Tennessee Titans v LA Chargers

    (14:00 BST) BBC Two

    Following last weekend's International Series curtain-raiser between the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders, the NFL returns to Wembley as the LA Chargers host the Tennessee Titans in their week seven match-up.

    The game sees the Chargers play in London for the first time in 10 years, with the team's only other trip across the pond coming in 2008, when the franchise was based in San Diego. Despite slipping to two defeats in their opening three matches, the Chargers have recovered to 4-2.

    Anchored by a destructive offence that boasts the talents of veteran quarterback Philip Rivers, running back Melvin Gordon and reliable receiver Keenan Allen, the Chargers come to London having won their last three matches. The AFC West side have averaged 29 points a game from their opening six games of the season and enter the week among the Top 10 offences in the NFL.

    Meanwhile, Tennessee come to the UK for the first time on the back of a successful 2017 campaign which saw the AFC side reach the Divisional Playoffs, only to beaten by eventual Super Bowl runners-up New England. Led by rookie head coach Mike Vrabel, the Titans currently find themselves tied with Jacksonville and Houston at the top of the highly competitive AFC South and have recorded impressive wins against the Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles on their way to a 3-3 record.

    Although Vrabel's side has largely impressed without the ball this season, they have struggled to put points on the board and head to London just days after being shut out 21-0 at home to Baltimore. The Titans have scored just 87 points so far this campaign, with Arizona and Buffalo the only teams to manage fewer, leading to increased pressure on fourth-year quarterback Marcus Mariota.

  3. What are the London NFL Games?

    Wembley Stadium during and NFL game

    Since staging its first game between the New York Giants and the Miami Dolphins in 2007, London is now home to multiple NFL matches each year and is hosting three games in 2018.

    Although this year's games will all take place at Wembley Stadium, previous seasons have also seen matches take place at Twickenham and 2019 will witness teams play at Tottenham Hotspur's new ground for the first time.

    Three new teams will be heading to UK shores for the first time in the form of the Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans and defending Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles.

    The 2018 International Series kicked-off with the Seahawks facing the Oakland Raiders in a one-sided contest which saw Seattle run away with a comfortable 27-3 victory.

    Video caption: Rookie's guide to American Football

    American football is a contact sport which is like a chess match with shoulder pads - the strategic element is just as important as the physical skills.

    Matches consist of four 15-minute quarters, with the game split into three main phases - offence, defence, and special teams.

    The goal is to move the ball towards, and ultimately into, the opposition's end zone to score a touchdown. This is achieved by either running with the ball until tackled, or throwing the ball downfield to a teammate.

    The nature of the game and the different positional groups means that American Football really is a game for all shapes and sizes.
