The NFL has been trying to grow the game of football globally in the past few years, with this season featuring games in the likes of London and even Mexico. 

With the Baltimore Ravens scheduled to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in London in 2017, quarterback Joe Flacco weighed in on why he and maybe other players would not mind going overseas.

Flacco joked with the media Thursday that he’s changed his opinion on going to London recently.

“I kind of always had a negative stance on it, but I’m warming up to the idea,” Flacco said.

“I have four kids now. I think that’s probably why I’m looking at it a little bit more optimistically. It’ll be good to get away from them.”

Flacco's four kids are all under the age of 5, so I guess you could understand why he feels this way. I wonder if Philip Rivers feels the same way.
