Fortunately for this guy, a basic knowledge of geography isn't required to play in the NFL.

All he has to do is shove people downfield and run them over. Anything else, even the ability to feed himself, is a bonus.

Well, I was in attendance at Wembley yesterday and I'm pleased to report that the popularity stakes were as follows:

1) Lewis Hamilton
2) Martin Johnson
3) The Miami Cheerleaders
4) The streaker
5) The Feeling
6) The Dolphins team
7) The Giants team
8) The military marching band at halftime
9) The Mexican Wave
10) John Terry

My personal favourite moment was John Terry getting simultaneously booed by 80,000 people, nicely juxtaposed between the huge cheers for Martin Johnson and Lewis Hamilton!
I think there was an American Football match in there somewhere as well......
It is surely better to be pissed off than pissed on

There is something of the Germany in 1939 mindset amongst a segment of English sports fans. Someone starts booing a visiting team's anthem, or starts up with "no surrender to the IRA", or "I'd rather be a Paki than a Turk", and 10,000 other morons chime in. OK, so Terry plays for Chelsea, arguably the least popular club for other football fans. But he's also the England captain and has for the most part played damn well for his country. He's at Wembley, where the England team play their home matches. What has he done to deserve that kind of treatment? And I'm not a Chelsea fan in a million years. Pretty f*****g sad behaviour. And this is not a dig, at all, at 4H, whose analysis of Sunday is 100% spot on, I was there too.

So how did all you Brits enjoy the game? Any interest in joining the NFL in the future?

I'd be more than happy for the NFL to franchise out a team to us - they could call them the London Monarchs.....or maybe not.

I've never understood the whole booing of national anthems et al - didn't happen during the rugby world cup so I'm assuming it's just a football thing. I translated the booing for John Terry as a social comment on him bottling somebody in a night club and then getting let off because he's famous. However, I now understand that playing for Chelsea is much worse and he should be disembowelled immediately.

Indianapolis has the best chance. Both teams will play each other at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis on Nov 4th.

I quite agree, ff. We're looking forward to that game. A win for New England will probably mean a bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Now that would have been a good game for the NFL to bring over to London. Tom Brady is having one heck of a year, on and off the field.

Sure did thanks very much. Likewise, as a Cowboys fan, I would like to see the NFL expand a bit but not so much as it downgrades the games at all. I think "if we could have sold this 90,000 seater game 8 times over" then we would have a valid go at having our own new team or one of those current franchises out for lick of paint who are not able to make playing in the US pay as much as moving here. Such as the Jets, Jaguars or Ravens would also be logical fits.

With the New England Patriots' 24-20 win over Indianapolis, there is little doubt about the identity of football's best team.

Yea and verily did the good Lord provide victory as Brett and his merry men had their wicked way with the lowly Detroit infidels. And thus the Lord did declaim "bring on them Cowboys".

Praise be and hallelujah. Amen.

Yea but then did the Packers journey to Dallas and the lair of the Cowboys, and the Lord (through his agents the Cowboys) did smite the Packers and their chieftain Brett. So are the mighty rendered low, Praise the Lord.

Patriots complete perfect regular season

I was hoping that the Pats would lose yesterday, but they came back from being down 28-16 at the beginning of the 4th quarter to beat the NY Giants 38-35

The Giants surprise the Cowboys (sorry CA) and the Chargers knock off the Colts. Quite a day of upsets. Green Bay and New England will host the conference finals to see who progresses to the Super Bowl.
