Ross: Dolphins 'fully embrace' playing overseas


Six NFL teams will play in three regular season games overseas in 2014. The Miami Dolphins are one of them.

The Dolphins will play "visitor" to the Oakland Raiders at London's Wembley Stadium, as announced by Commissioner Roger Goodell Thursday.

“With our historically strong following internationally, the Dolphins are proud to once again represent the league abroad as one of the six participants of the 2014 International Series,” Dolphins Chairman Stephen Ross said in a press release.

“The opportunity to again connect with our many fans overseas and to expose a growing global audience to the sport we all love is something that our entire organization will fully embrace.”

The Dolphins "hosted" the New York Giants in the United Kingdom in 2007 and played another international game in 2008 when it visited the Buffalo Bills in Toronto.

In the other two games of the 2014 International Series, the Atlanta Falcons will host the Detroit Lions and the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Dallas Cowboys. All dates, including the Dolphins' matchup, are to be determined.
