Jacksonville has been tabbed to play four NFL games in four years at international venues, according to a report.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are headed across the pond - according to early reports, an official announcement will be made Tuesday that the Jags will play international NFL games starting with the 2013 season and running for the next four years:

In recent years, "international" has basically meant London's Wembley Stadium, where five games have been played since 2007. However, Big Cat Country points out that the league could be interested in other venues, namely Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland (Navy and Notre Dame will play in Dublin's Aviva Stadium in two weeks to start the college football stadium). The NFL has also visited Mexico City, when Arizona defeated San Francisco in 2005.
