Published Add your comment

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley praised the crowd inside Wembley Stadium for creating a "great atmosphere" during the team's 42-10 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers.

That was the Jaguars eighth consecutive loss at Wembley in the latest NFL International Series match, but Bradley credited the victors before praising the 85,000-strong crowd who turned up to watch the action.

"Give credit to San Francisco," Bradley said in his post-match press conference. "They're a very good team. We knew that coming in. They do a really good job of running the ball and getting explosive plays. We needed to react accordingly and I thought we missed some opportunities.

"Before I get too much into the game, though, I thought it was a great atmosphere. The crowd stayed there all the way through the end. There was great energy from the crowd. It was an awesome environment. I'd like to thank everybody that was associated with that.

"Before the game you saw a lot of the crowd was waving Jacksonville flags. I think that was awesome. It was very similar to the crowd at EverBank Field. There were 85,000 people. With a stadium like that, it was a great experience."

Bradley went on to talk more about the experience of playing in London.

"It's been really good," he responded when asked whether they team had enjoyed their trip to the English capital. "The support we've had, it felt like the whole city bent over backwards for us. From our practice facilities, our food, getting to the stadium, and the stadium experience, all of it has been unbelievable."

The Jaguars' quarterback Chad Henne echoed his coach's sentiments after the final whistle.

"It was a great atmosphere," the 28-year-old added. "Fans were into it. I thought it was great. It was just a really good experience for us. Thank you."
