For the first time in the NFL International Series, Sunday's Redskins-Bengals game will feature two division winners from the year prior.

As part of the NFL's International Series, the Redskins will be playing in London next year. Check out photos from the Redskins' previous games outside the United States.

Since 2007, the NFL has played at least one game outside of the United States, known as the International Series.

But on Sunday, fans will see something that has never happened in an International Series game before when the Washington Redskins take the field against the Cincinnati Bengals at Wembley Stadium in London.

This matchup marks the first time in International Series history that two division winners from the year prior face off overseas.

The Redskins, winners of the NFC East a year ago, are just a game and a half out of first place. The Bengals are 3-4, but just a game out of first place in the AFC North.

International fans are in for a treat. Kickoff is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. ET.
