Another piece of the New York Jets’ schedule has been unveiled

After learning on Tuesday that the New York Jets will open their 2024 season in San Francisco, we’ve now learned of one more contest on the Jets’ slate prior to tonight’s full schedule release (8 p.m. ET).

As confirmed by the team’s official X account, the Jets will be facing the Minnesota Vikings in London on October 6 at 9:30 a.m. ET. The game will take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The overseas contest will count as a Vikings home game.

New York’s London-based duel with Minnesota is one of five international games on the NFL’s 2024 schedule, including the first of three in London. All five international games have been announced:

  • September 6: Green Bay vs. Philadelphia, Sao Paulo, Brazil (Corinthians Arena)
  • October 6: NY Jets vs. Minnesota, London, England (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)
  • October 13: Jacksonville vs. Chicago, London, England (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)
  • October 20: New England vs. Jacksonville, London, England (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)
  • November 10: NY Giants vs. Carolina, Munich, Germany (Allianz Arena)

This will be the Jets’ first trip to London since 2021, when they lost 27-20 to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5. It is their first matchup against the Vikings since Week 13 of 2022, when the Jets made a furious comeback attempt but came up just short in a 27-22 loss.

As the depth charts currently stand, quarterbacks Sam Darnold and Aaron Rodgers are poised for a long-awaited rematch after they went shot-for-shot in a 2018 shootout that was ultimately claimed by Green Bay in overtime, 44-38. Darnold is expected to compete with first-round pick J.J. McCarthy for the Vikings’ starting quarterback job.
