The Patriots will play the Rams in London this season, the Rams announced this morning. The game will be Oct. 28 at Wembley Stadium.

This will mark the Patriots' second trip to London in four seasons. They beat the Buccaneers there in 2009.

The contest will count as a home game for the Rams, meaning the Patriots will still have their full slate of eight regular-season home games at Gillette Stadium.

“We are honored to be selected for this year’s game and eager to return,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said in an NFL press release. “We had such a great experience during our last visit to London. We are proud to have great support from our fans when we are on the road. The United Kingdom is home to some of our most passionate Patriots fans, including the UKPatriots, who are among our most active fan clubs overall, not just overseas. We look forward to another memorable experience.”
