NFL Football Returns to London

Every year since 2005 the NFL has hosted one of it’s regular season games outside the United States. For the third year in a row, the NFL’s international series game was held at Wembley Stadium in London, England. This year’s NFL game in London played out as expected, as the New England Patriots (5-2) decimated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-7) by an enormous margin: 35 – 7.

Tom Brady threw for 3 Touchdowns and 308 yards for the Patriots, but also threw two interceptions that for his sake didn’t have a major impact on the game. New England’s defense was as solid as ever and their league-leading offense was firing on all cylinders, though not as effectively as in last week’s 59-0 destruction of the Tennessee Titans. The Patriots look dangerous and are pulling away from the Jets in the AFC East, though they haven’t been guaranteed their Division title just yet. With just over half the season to go, anything is possible.

Tampa’s defense lived up to it’s billing as the second-worst in the league and have allowed only 8 fewer than the equally embarrassing St. Louis Rams (0-7). The team is a far cry from the 2007 edition that won their Division and is even further removed from the 2002 Super Bowl Winning team. They have yet to win under head coach Raheem Morris, who took over after Jon Gruden was fired at the end of last season, and have now tied Gruden’s loss total for each of the past two seasons without a win in sight.
