Harbaugh called the team’s facility in England a “football oasis” and he asked the English media about a favorite television show, “Foyle’s War.” However, don’t count the San Francisco 49ers among those who may be reluctant to take their show to London. The league already had announced that the Jaguars, Falcons, and Raiders will host games in London. Wednesday’s whispers are Thursday’s confirmations: The Dallas Cowboys will indeed hop an international flight to London during the 2014 regular season to play the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Cowboys, who recently were named the most popular NFL team in the United States by a Harris Poll, would bring a little sizzle to a game that otherwise isn’t very compelling because the Jaguars are, well, the Jaguars.
