    Sounds exciting. Seems like we're about the only team that hasn't played there yet.

    pretty sure my Eagles haven't yet either. If they lost to the Giants in Week 17 they would have played the Rams over there.

    My tickets arrived yesterday. Anyone else ready to go? Apparently the Vince Lombardi trophy is coming along too and will be at some fan events I've pre-registered for so hopefully get a close look at that and a few players might make an appearance.

    Colts alter routine as they prep for London trip


    The Colts held what was basically a walkthrough Tuesday, normally a day off for players.

    It’s not a normal week, though, as the Colts play the Jaguars in London Sunday. This marks the fourth straight year the Jaguars will play a home game in London, but the experience is new to the Colts.

    “The theme is to keep the main thing the main thing, and that’s preparation, prepare, do everything, try to keep things as normal as possible from a preparation and practice standpoint,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said, per the team’s official transcript. “You have to make a few adjustments here and there, but at the end of the day it’s focus and mindset on one thing and one thing only, and that is getting win No. 2.”

    The Colts, who rallied to beat the Chargers last Sunday, will fly to London Thursday evening and practice after arriving Friday morning. Pagano said the team kept things light Tuesday but felt that using the day to begin prepping for the Jaguars was necessary given the circumstances.

    “We are just coming off a really physical and mental-draining game, as you know,” he said. “We had really good, long meetings, [an] introduction to Jacksonville. We will amp it up tomorrow. We will amp it up Thursday.”

    Sunday’s game kicks off at 9:30 a.m. ET.

    If the Colts really allow the Jags to get their first win of the season on an international stage, then I hope US Customs refuses to allow the Colts back into the US.

    Wasn't there of course but stumbled upon the ending and all I remember was it had a crazy ending. Also pretty weird seeing an American football game taking place at Aviva stadium.

    PS: I know you didn't ask me.

    Only seeing this now.

    It was a good game in the end. The Boston QB sucked though, and the Georgia fans were much louder than Boston fans.

    Weather put a bit of a dampener on it. Was very dull and drizzly. Irish weather basically.

    I hope there's a game again soon. I've gone to the three college games in Dublin in recent years and enjoyed all of them.

    Full game is on Youtube:

    Jim Irsay wants to find the right owner for a team in London


    If there are any London-based billionaires with an interest in American football reading this, please give Jim Irsay a call.

    Irsay, the Colts owner whose team plays in London tomorrow, said at an appearance there today that he’s hoping the NFL will have a franchise in London. And Irsay thinks the key is getting the right owner in place, someone who understands both American football and the European market.

    “That’s my goal as an owner, to find the right owner and the right team to come here,” Irsay said, via George Bremer of the Herald Bulletin.

    The NFL is serious about building the sport in London, with many owners believing the league is as popular as it’s going to get in the United States and will need to grow overseas if it’s going to keep growing. But there are many logistical challenges to putting a team in London permanently, as opposed to just playing a few games a year there. The right owner will have to work through those challenges to make it work.

    Well if they lose to the Jaguars and go 1-3, I think its safe to put the season to rest and look forward to the next.

    It's not easy to do that because of the monstrous off season!

    btw, Foul on Smits' post about the only way Irsay would fire Pagano deserves more praise. Hahaha. I remember it now and then and just laugh out loud.

    That schedule is far too weak to do all that after just 4 weeks

    At this point I don't think anyone would be too upset if that happened

    We've given up 81 points to the Jaguars in our past 2 games against them

    The game was poor in the first half and it was too late by the time they pulled themselves together but overall it was a good weekend and great to experience a game in-person. Now onwards to November to see some more in Indianapolis! Hopefully see a win.
