LONDON – The city of London is gearing up for the Houston Texans to play their first game across the pond this weekend.
They'll play the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wimberly Stadium on Sunday, Nov. 3, at 8:30 a.m. Houston time.
Signage started going up around the city on Wednesday, the same day our crews landed in the city, along with chairman and chief executive officer of the Houston Texans D. Cal McNair.
