CINCINNATI -- Who Dey in the UK!

The Bengals will play the Los Angeles Rams this year in London, the team announced Monday. The game will be the Rams’ fourth time hosting a game in London.

Bengals DE Sam Hubbard is excited for the opportunity to play at Wembley Stadium.

"I think it's going to be a great experience considering I have never been to Europe and have always wanted to go there," Hubbard said. "My family is very excited as well. They are going to make the trip."

The game is one of the NFL’s five international regular season games for the 2019 season. Two games will be played at Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, and two will be played at Wembley Stadium.

The matchup will be the Bengals’ second in London in recent years; the team played the Washington Redskins in 2016 at Wembley Stadium.
