A Huge American Football Match Is Coming To Wembley

share on:
American Football Wembley Stadium

39! 42! Hut! Or something. The NFL is paying their latest visit to London as Baltimore Ravens play the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium.

A mighty match of the game we like to call hand-egg is all set to go down on September 24th, and we’ve got tickets.

The Jaguars play in London semi-regularly and consider themselves ‘London’s team.’ In fact, there are occasional rumours that they might relocate here on a full-time basis, although if I was them, I’d find it hard to give up my stadium with it’s own freaking outdoor swimming pool:

I think we need to get on replicating this game-changing functionality in London, to be quite honest.

Up against the not-exactly-local heroes are the Baltimore Ravens, so it’ll be an opportunity to see how they get on without running back / high school music technician-lookin’ fella Danny Woodhead, and to come to your own opinion over whether Joe Flacco is, in fact, an elite quarterback. Meanwhile, Leonard Fournette and Blake Bortles (nice name btw) will be trying to help the Jaguars overcome the Ravens’ up-and-coming defense.

In any case, you can grab your half-way line or end-zone tickets from us.

  1. Terrible article. Why do you have to dumb it down for Brits? The concept of American football is not difficult. Also, Danny Woodhead wasn’t even the starting RB for the Ravens. If you were watching the games you’d realise Terrence West and Javouris Allen have been playing RB just fine for the Ravens.

    No Flacco is not elite, and he hasn’t played like an elite QB since Gary Kubiak left as Offensive Coordinator. Please do research.

    Yours faithfully,

  2. The Jaguars are contemplating relocation because despite having a swimming pool, they don’t sell out games in Jacksonville like they do in Wembley. There’s more money to be made in London because Wembley is bigger than EverBank Field.

    Again, research. Why do they get writers (who know nothing about American football), to write articles about it? It’s cringeworthy.
