WASHINGTON - New Orleans and Indianapolis, the sites of the past two Super Bowls, and Minneapolis are the three finalists to host the NFL championship game in 2018.

Those three cities have been selected from a pool of six at the owners' meetings Tuesday.

Colts owner Jim Irsay says: "It proves that Indianapolis is really a unique city, being a medium-sized market in a colder market, without 80 degrees and beaches."

Owners say that the subject of changing the Washington Redskins' nickname was not discussed in any formal way during Tuesday's sessions.

Among the decisions made: There will be three games played at London's Wembley Stadium next season. The Falcons, Jaguars and Raiders will be the "home" teams. Dates and opponents will be announced later.
