Bills-Jaguars in London 2015 could be live streamed, per report

If you don't live in the Buffalo or Jacksonville NFL TV markets, fret not: there's a chance you'll be able to watch the game online. Legally.

When the Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars square off at Wembley Stadium in London this fall, the two teams could be making history that has nothing to do with the venue of that contest.

Per a report from John Ourand and Terry Lefton in the Sports Business Journal, the NFL is currently seeking out a digital company to broadcast a regular season game online next season - and that the league is looking at the three games taking place in London, with 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff times, as likely candidates.

"The NFL has not made a final decision, but sources say it is looking closely at the Bills-Jaguars game in London on Oct. 25," the report says.

In addition, the report specifies that the league is mostly doing the one-game stream as a test, to see which digital partners might be most interested in becoming paying content partners with the NFL down the line - and whether or not that's feasible in the immediate future.

In essence, then, the Bills-Jaguars game at Wembley would reach "guinea pig" status for something very cool. Here's to hoping that both teams raise their level of play from previous Bills-Jags contests if the experiment does, indeed, involve them.
