    Jacksonville owner Shad Khan and the Jaguars are only focused on the one game a year the NFL wants them to play in London the next four years.

    However, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently said the league could ask the Jaguars to play two games a year in London. Khan said Wednesday in first public comments since Goodell suggested possible multiple London games that he is ''going to cross that bridge when we get to it.''

    After an announcement of a $63 million project to put new massive video scoreboards in each end zone for the 2014 season Khan was asked if he was disappointed to hear Goodell's statement about the Jaguars possibly playing two games a year in London.

    ''What we're focused on right now as a team is four games in London for the next four years,'' Khan said. ''That's very important to us. I think everyone needs to understand playing games in London is very, very important for Jacksonville, it's very important to this franchise. We need fans, we need more corporate sponsors. Jacksonville is excellent in fan support, great facilities that we're going to have. We don't have enough corporate sponsors.

    ''London is the missing piece but right now, our focus is the next four years with one game.''

    Khan wouldn't provide an answer as to whether he would turn down a Goodell request to play a second game in London.

    ''Whether it makes sense, there are a number of constituencies,'' Khan said. ''We want to do the right thing for everybody.''
