As we near the release of the NFL schedule tonight, the Los Angeles Rams have announced they’ll be playing against the Cincinnati Bengals in London, England, on October 27th:
London Calling!— Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) April 17, 2019
The #LARams will face the Bengals on October 27th at @wembleystadium!
The bout between the Rams and Bengals is a week eight matchup to be played on Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. PT. This is the fourth time the Rams will have played in their international England series. Their record all time in these games is 1-2, though they haven’t played in Wembley stadium since a bad loss against the New England Patriots in 2012. The Rams are the host (Rams home game) due to an NFL rule in which teams playing in a temporary stadium are forced to play in a game abroad in the International Series.
Another interesting angle to observe will be Head Coach Sean McVay facing off against his former QB Coach/Assistant Wide Receivers Coach and newly appointed Head Coach for the Bengals, Zac Taylor. Taylor will face-off against his former boss so-to-speak, making it a fun environment for both guys to compete and duel head-to-head.
The Rams and Bengals do not face each other often, making this game unique for both sides. It’s also a chance for LT Andrew Whitworth to go against his former team.
