Report: Patriots likely to play Rams in London

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a Rams home game against an AFC foe will be played in London next season, and it’s likely to be the home date against the Patriots.

League sources told the Post-Dispatch on Thursday night that the team will play an AFC foe — believed to be the New England Patriots — during the 2012 regular season in London.

London, of course, is the home of Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s Arsenal soccer team of the English Premier League.

The only other AFC team the Rams are due to host next season are the Jets.

The Patriots played the Buccaneers in London during the 2009 season and won 35-7.
