Jerry Supports NFL Team in London



    The Dallas Cowboys are set to play the Jacksonville Jaguars in London in 2014, which will be the first time the Cowboys have played a regular-season game across the pond after playing in the preseason in London in the early 1990s.

    Even though the Cowboys aren't the power they were back then, they're still "America's Team" and it's a big deal that the Cowboys are going to London to play a regular-season game, a game that is already sold out at London's Wembley Stadium.

    Jones told English network Sky Sports that he supports the idea of the NFL expanding to London, despite the travel headaches it would cause. But hey, Jones is all about marketing and all about NFL global awareness, so why not, right?

    "I think that's very possible and I'm very much for it," Jones told Sky Sports. "These games will be a good indication of the type of support that we could have there, but London is one of the few cities outside of the United States that would be a great city internationally for the NFL."

    There will be two other regular-season games in Wembley in 2014 — Lions-Falcons and Dolphins-Raiders, both of which have already sold out, as well.
