DETROIT -

The Detroit Lions are going to London.

The Lions will face the Atlanta Falcons next season at London's Wembley Stadium, as a part of a three-game set announced by the NFL on Thursday.

The other games include Jaguars vs. Cowboys and Raiders vs. Dolphins.

Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the Cowboys-Jaguars, Lions-Falcons, and Dolphins-Raiders matchups during a media event in London, where the Jaguars will host the 49ers on Sunday. Dates and times of the games are to be determined.

For five of the teams, it’ll be their first regular-season game in London.  The Dolphins played the Giants there in 2007.
