"Internationally, fans don't really know the difference between the Jaguars and the Steelers. Why shouldn't we be the flag carriers?"

"I think it would serve Jacksonville well to play a game or two overseas, to get the name Jacksonville out there," Khan said. "To develop Jacksonville overseas."

This year, the Chicago Bears defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaners 24-18 in what has become the NFL's annual matchup at London's Wembly Stadium on Oct. 23. The NFL has sent teams to England every year since 2006, and also staged a game between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, the first NFL game played on foreign soil.
