The BBC understands the match will be played at the new Wembley, and that it will be a home game for Miami Dolphins, probably against the New York Giants.
London secured the match ahead of four German cities while Wembley fought off opposition from Twickenham.
It will be played in its own time slot – around 1800 in London, rather than as part of the normal weekly group of matches – and its location will be highlighted with pictures of London landmarks such as Big Ben and Trafalgar Sqyuare throughout the boradcast.
The NFL hopes perhaps double the 60m who watch an average match will tune in for this special occasion.
Securing the game is a coup for London – Toronto and Mexico City were keen to stage it, as well as Berlin, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf and Hamburg in Germany.
The date and time are expected to be revealed some time after February 2nd.
