    Interested in watching the film and seeing if the Jets did the same thing they did last year. I was talking about it on Reddit so I watched the film of last year's game and it was quite an elegant gameplan. Obviously they have a new coach but a number of the same players.

    Haha, that was funny, but it was also a pretty good tackle. Gronk does that to so many people and usually they just slip off and give up big YAC.

    Oh my goodness!!

    Just got back from the Wembley game!!! What a cracker! The Ohio State Marching Band amazed, the game was utterly utterly ridiculous and amazing, and there was such a melting pot of fans.

    I was impressed with TJ Yeldon and Telvin Smith, and the uh...resilience of both teams. Also very impressed, but at some level not surprised at all, that Bills Mafia travelled well. There was a lot of American Buffalo fans.

    I can't believe we lost that game yesterday. Such poor game management and play calling by Lovie. Utterly stinking.

    Still gutted about the Jets game, when we recovered that onside kick I jumped out of my seat.

    Clock runoff is the most bull**** penalty :mad:

    It did exactly what it was designed to do - if you don't leave enough time to get to the line of scrimmage and get set, the game ends.

    I'm impressed that the Pats managed to win despite passing the ball on over 85% of the plays and dropping a load of balls. The Jets look like a playoff team though, particularly if Ivory can get healthy.

    I watched them on the TV and was just mesmerised. TBDBITL is right!

    Telvin Smith is a baller, he's future pro-bowl even in the Jags #31 largest market. I also love TJ, I'm certainly no expert but it looks like he has great vision for between the tackles running. He's unlikely to dazzle like Gurley but he will consistently get useful pick ups in the run game and the Jags need that. Bortles does not play well when the offence is forced to be one dimensional. Playcalling still leaves much to be desired though. 4 Toby Gerhart runs up the middle from the 1 had me scratching my head. Also going into zone after getting the big lead... What you were doing was working and you're playing EJ Manuel with no big name receivers; force him to squeeze the ball and force the receivers to get separation.

    Man Greg hardy really pisses me off. Don't really wish injury on players but him I wouldn't mind seeing hurt. He just doesnt get it and neither does Jerry.

    Greg the leader on the team. William Gay and DeAngelo Williams fined for uniform violations related to domestic violence awareness and breast cancer awareness respectively. I get that for commercialisation purposes the NFL likes to be able to control everything in the uniform but Christ on a bike. When all of your sports fans actually hate your organisation you can't make moves like that.

    He is indeed. Offensive Rookie of the year will be a hard one. My money would be on Amari Cooper though, although you could make a good case for Stefon Diggs, Todd Gurley or even TJ Yeldon as well.

    I recommend going very early so you can take part in the quarterback challenge and wide receiver challenges in the tailgate.

    And buy some sweet Giants swag at the shop.

    If you want to get merchandise, you have to be early. The queues for refreshments start early too Also, allow about 50 minutes to an hour to get to Wembley Park tube station after the game.

    I like that a wide spectrum of NFL fans are represented, and every team is represented.

    Your welcome!

    How are you getting to wembley? If you moving from Central London (Zone 1) into Wembley Park (Zone 4) it's something like £5.30 each way if you have to pay cash, or like £2.80, each way, if you have an Oyster card. It nearly court me out though!

    That is literally it, I came back from a night out and had a quick browse of the stat lines and my fantasy team. Miller had 34 all-purpose yards! 260 yards the week before and 34 this week! In what kind of twisted world is that okay? Tannehill had a bit of a western but I do think the Pats have an underrated secondary.

    I only half paid attention to it after it was a blowout, but I thought Tannehill had an OK game. He converted a few third and longs on nice passes early on and moved well in the pocket for the most part. Pretty much every drive involved either starting well inside the 20, or a third and long, or both. He has to take responsibility for the safety of course, and the first INT was a pretty floaty throw considering the pattern I thought, although the announcers were speculating it was a bad route. I don't remember the second one but I assume it was in garbage time aka the second half. Apart from that they got a few bad bounces, a punt going for a touchback, missed tackles (including the usual one on Gronk for the TD that I mentioned last week when Gilchrist tackled him), the Pats punter having a perfect game. They couldn't run the ball, they couldn't get off blocks and when they did they couldn't catch Dion Lewis anyway. They got absolutely dominated in all phases of the game and put all their hopes on their QB's shoulders. He didn't deliver. Big surprise.

    People are saying Tannehill had a bad game but how many QBs in the league are going to look good in that situation? We know at this point that Peyton and Luck wouldn't and neither would Flacco, Stafford, Cutler etc. Cam and Dalton look great but haven't been in that situation at all. Brees maybe but the Saints like to be pretty balanced, Palmer an even bigger maybe... so that leaves Rodgers.
