The NFL in London will go on, without the St. Louis Rams. After the Rams announced Monday that they would forgo their regular season games scheduled for 2013 and 2014, the NFL told SB Nation that the game would go on, maybe even games.

A statement from VP of International Chris Parson read:

"We appreciate the Rams support for our international growth strategy. We are currently working to add a second game in the UK, potentially for the 2013 season, in response to the growth in popularity of our sport. We hope to finalize these plans in the months ahead."

The idea of two games in the UK has come up before. As for how soon those plans might be finalized, owners have a meeting scheduled for October.

A number of other teams have expressed interest in playing in the US. The Jacksonville Jaguars are one team that made their interest in an overseas game public this year.
