Points of interest on the NFL schedule include the league’s annual series of international games. This coming season will feature games in Germany and London, just as in 2023, along with a new hosting locale in Brazil. That game has been set in stone for a while, with the Packers taking on the Eagles, but NFL fans now know the matchups for the rest of the international games.

Read on for more details and early odds via online betting sites for NFL international games in 2024.

NFL International Schedule For This Season

Week 1: Packers vs. Eagles In Sao Paolo (Friday, Sept. 6)

The Eagles have been installed as an early favorite here, coming off a down year in which Super Bowl contention fell apart quickly down the stretch. For 2024, both teams are thought to be on the fringe of true contention.

Each team worked to rebuild its secondary, the Eagles with their top two picks in the draft and the Packers with investments in the draft and free agency. Both units will get an early test here against passing games that are capable of doing plenty of damage.

The Packers will hope Jordan Love continues his possible superstar ascent. He figures to be a popular MVP odds bet.

Philly, meanwhile, will enter the season hoping new coordinators can squeeze more juice out of a roster with a ton of talent.

Week 5: Jets vs. Vikings In London (Sunday, Oct. 6)

Quarterback storylines dominate here.

The Jets will look to get back on course after a lost season almost entirely without the celebrated acquisition of Aaron Rodgers. He’ll work with a rebuilt offensive line and a bolstered group of receiving weapons.

With the Titans and Broncos early in their schedule, they should enter this game in decent shape record-wise.

On the other hand, the Vikings will look to build for the future by pairing young signal-caller JJ McCarthy with Coach Kevin O’Connell. McCarthy had better get up to speed quickly because the Jets seem sure to finish with one of the most robust defenses.

Week 6: Jaguars vs. Bears In London (Sunday, Oct. 13)

Two 2023 also-rans who bring real playoff hopes clash here.

Chicago built quite a solid defense but couldn’t get any consistency out of their QBs. Enter Caleb Williams, the presumed savior, along with a pair of premium WR pickups in Keenan Allen and Rome Odunze.

The market expects good things, reflected in a close line here.

Jacksonville endured a rather disappointing 2023 campaign. Expected to roll to the division title, they spent January at home after needing outlier scenarios to transpire in Week 18. They opted to retool the receiver group, sending Calvin Ridley on his way and bringing in rookie Brian Thomas Jr. and free agent Gabe Davis.

Week 7: Patriots vs. Jaguars In London (Sunday, Oct. 20)

The Jaguars may face another rookie QB here, depending on how quickly New England brings No. 3 overall pick Drake Maye along.

Regardless, all eyes in New England will be on new coach Jerod Mayo. He’ll be stepping into the biggest shoes possible and has his work cut out for him, with everyone else in the division aiming for the Super Bowl.

The Jags will enjoy a massive situational advantage for the second straight year, staying in London to await an opponent flying across the pond. Last year, they stopped a red-hot Bills team in this spot. The assignment should be considerably easier this time around, but the pressure will be on as sizable favorites.

Week 10: Giants vs. Panthers In Munich (Sunday, Nov. 10)

German fans will have to make do with a downgrade here. Last year, they got eventual Super Bowl champs Kansas City against fellow AFC playoff team Miami. This year, two rebuilding clubs come to town.

The Giants couldn’t follow their 2022 playoff run with more success. They managed to build a folk hero in Tommy DeVito, but that was about the extent of the good vibes in 2023. Top draftee Malik Nabers will try to pair with a returning Daniel Jones to get the offense back off the ground.

Carolina spent its offseason working hard to provide a better support system for Bryce Young. The Panthers brought in a pair of veteran guards (Robert Hunt and Damien Lewis), traded for talented but frustrating Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, and drafted further weaponry in RB Jonathon Brooks and TE Ja’Tavion Sanders.

New Head Coach Dave Canales will direct the retooled unit. Panthers fans will hope they’ve seen a significant turnaround by Week 10.
