The 2016 NFL International Series has come and gone and this year's three games were topped of by the Bengals - Redskins overtime thriller, one that may well go down as the most exciting game that London fans have been treated too.

Football will be back in London's capital next year, with three - or maybe even four - regular season games set to take place on British soil for fans throughout Europe to come and enjoy.

And the first of those games has already been confirmed, with the Miami Dolphins tweeting out that they will be taking on the New Orleans Saints in England next year.

The move to have the Dolphins and Saints playing in England works on numerous levels. Miami have had a large following in the United Kingdom ever since the glory days of football on terrestrial television in the 80s and 90s. The Dolphins and Dan Marino drew many fans across the Atlantic during that time.

Staying on the Dolphins side of things, they also currently boast a certain Jay Ajayi, who just so happens to be a Londoner. We hear that he's pretty good. There is no doubt that Wembley - or wherever the game will be played - will be absolutely rocking when Ajayi's name is called over the tannoy.

And, finally, we have the New Orleans Saints. With Drew Brees at quarterback, there is no doubt that fans will turn out to see the veteran quarterback and future Hall of Famer in action one more time before he eventually hangs up his cleats.

This is a great start for NFL fans in the UK and, hopefully, the other games that have yet to be announced will be equally as enticing.
