Bengals to play Super Bowl-bound Rams next season in London

The Cincinnati Bengals are returning to London, and will face former teammate Andrew Whitworth and the Super Bowl-bound Los Angeles Rams.

The NFL announced Monday five international games — four in London and one in Mexico City — in 2019. No dates were announced.

The Bengals only other visit to London came in 2016 against the Washington Redskins.

In addition to the Whitworth connection, Rams assistant coach Zac Taylor is expected to be named the next Bengals head coach after the Super Bowl. Rams head coach Sean McVay was born in Dayton and played collegiately at Miami University.

The other games in London are Houston-Jacksonville, Carolina-Tampa Bay and Chicago-Oakland. Kansas City and the Los Angeles Chargers will play in Mexico City.

The NFL has played 24 games in London since 2007.
