Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush believes London will be home to an NFL franchise sooner rather than later, according to The Detroit Free Press

The Lions are in London this week as they prepare to take on the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday at Wembley Stadium. Earlier this season, the Dolphins defeated the Raiders as part of the NFL International Series. 

Bush also foresees the Super Bowl being held in London. 

"I think it's only a matter of time before an NFL team comes to London, and I think it's only a matter of time before they have a Super Bowl here, too," Bush said at a Play 60 event at the Surrey Sports Park. "That's going to happen, for sure. I don't know when, but I definitely see that happening."

Later this season, the Cowboys and Jaguars will play the third NFL game of this season in England.

The Lions, who improved to 5-2 after a comeback victory over the Saints on Sunday, play the 2-5 Falcons at 9:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. Detroit is currently tied with the Green Bay Packers for the top spot in the NFC North. 

Bush, who has been dealing with an ankle injury, has rushed for 171 yards and a touchdown on 49 carries so far this season.
