Giants vs. Dolphins in London

Dolphins chosen to lose a home game in 2007. What a great matchup.

MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Dolphins will host the New York Giants in a regular-season game in London later this year.

A person familiar with the NFL's decision told The Associated Press on Thursday that the Dolphins will move a home game overseas. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement will not be made until after commissioner Roger Goodell's Super Bowl news conference Friday.

The Dolphins and Giants will play in September or October, and the game will be scheduled around a bye week for both teams. The schedule won't be released until early spring.

The game will be held at either the new 90,000-seat Wembley Stadium, scheduled to open in the spring, or 82,000-seat Twickenham, home of English rugby.

The Dolphins were one of six teams willing to move a home game next season, and were chosen over San Francisco, Seattle, Buffalo, Kansas City and New Orleans.

It will be the second regular-season match played abroad. In October 2005, the Arizona Cardinals swapped a home game with San Francisco to Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. The Cardinals' victory drew a crowd of 103,467.

Goodell is a strong advocate of taking games abroad. The league has played preseason games overseas for decades, and team owners voted last year to include regular-season matches in the American Bowl series.

The NFL hopes to play regular-season games again in Mexico, as well as in Canada, other cities in Europe, and in Japan, China and Australia. The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks will play a preseason game in the China Bowl on Aug. 8 at Beijing's Workers Stadium.

Wait a sec, the Giants will lose that one. Eli Mannings excuse will be, "Gosh Darn I wasn't even sure what was going on. Being in a whole nother country was pretty intimidating. My Daddy said I did good."

The league goes and picks the most boring of the group......well, maybe Buffalo.
