NFL adds second London tilt for ’13


The NFL announced Tuesday that it is adding a second 2013 game at London’s Wembley Stadium with the Minnesota Vikings taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 29.

Next year’s game will precede the already scheduled Oct. 27 contest between the San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars, both games part of the NFL’s International Series.

As part of the series, the league has been playing one regular-season contest a year in London since the 2007 season.

This year’s clash is slated for Oct. 28 when the New England Patriots are due to face the St. Louis Rams.
