The last time the New Orleans Saint traveled across the pond was in 2008, when they defeated the San Diego Chargers 37-32 at Wembley Stadium in London.

The team went on to finish 8-8 that season, a year before their Super Bowl run in the 2009 season.

The Black and Gold will be back in London in Week 4 of the 2017 season to take on the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 1. The Dolphins are well used to Wembley. It will be the fourth appearance for the Dolphins, who are 1-2 in London.

The last visit for Miami was in 2015, a 27-14 loss to the New York Jets.

Kickoff for the Oct. 1 game has not yet been announced.
