For the first time ever, UK fans will have two regular season games at Wembley Stadium to double their fix of live NFL action on these shores.

To get you in the mood, Sky Sports will be screening two special off-season series taking a closer look at the two 'home' teams for the autumn's NFL games in London.

The Minnesota Vikings will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars will play the first of four games at home over the coming four seasons when they host Super Bowl runners-up San Francisco 49ers.

The London-bound Vikings have all been taking part in an NFL UK roadshow with Sky Sports host Neil Reynolds and regular pundit Jeff Reinbold playing host to the players and some lucky NFL fans.

Attending are Pro Bowl tight end Kyle Rudolph, safety Harrison Smith and centre John Sullivan.

The Steelers and Vikings will get it on on September 29 at Wembley, with the 49ers making the long trip to face Jacksonville a month later on October 27.

Both 'Inside the Jaguars' and 'Inside the Vikings' will look inside the franchise with great games from the archives as well as news, features and interviews.

Being screened on alternate weeks, the series starts with Inside the Jaguars on Sky Sports 4 on Wednesday March 27 at 7pm, with Inside the Vikings starting a week later on April 3.

As the game continues to build in popularity in the UK, staging two games in one season is a big step forward for the NFL.

Fans are thirsty for more action and so, with two 'home' teams playing in the UK this year we've got our mini-series of shows for fans to get fully emerged in all things Vikings and Jaguars.

The first airing of Inside the Jaguars will be repeated at the following times and days - Wednesday, Sky Sports 1 at 10:30pm, Thursday, Sky Sports 2 at 3am, Thursday, Sky Sports 3 at 8am, Thursday, Sky Sports 2 at midday.
