London's Wembley Stadium, in both its old configuration and its updated version (right), has seen it's fair share of great football action through the years.

Of course, by football here we mean soccer, not American football.

However, in the past few years, the National Football League has managed to stage some pre-season, and more recently, regular season games at Wembley.

In fact, in October, 2012, the New England Patriots will square off against the St. Louis Rams in London. But now it's been announced that the Jacksonville Jaguars have inked a multi-season deal at Wembley.

The team will play one game per season there, starting in 2013 and running through 2016.

NFL officials both here and in Britain have even gone so far as to suggest that one day London might be home to an NFL franchise.

Anchor Marco Werman tries to get a handle on what all of this means for the Jaguars, for the team's players and fans, and for professional football as a whole by speaking with Mark Lamping, President of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
