This weekend sees the return of the NFL to London and Wembley Stadium is preparing to welcome an AFC East battle between the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets.

The Jets have been a surprise package in the league this season as their impressive defensive unit continues to stop some of the best offenses in the league.

Coming prepared

When both teams leave London, they will surely be hoping to be leaving with a win, but there's a lot of time between now and Sunday and as it happens, the Jets are taking some interesting items with them.

While the season is ongoing, all NFL teams do what they can to replicate their home environment when they go on the road.

For the Jets, that means taking an extensive inventory of items to Britain to help their stars feel more at home.

The Jets are doing everything they can to make their players feel like they're at home in London, including bringing a large amount of toilet paper with them.

According to the New York Times, the Jets will be taking 350 rolls of toilet paper to London with them because British paper is just not good enough.

At least the Jets know that their requirements are unusual.

"Some may say that’s a little over the top or whatnot, but it didn’t really cost that much, so why not?" - The Jets on their London trip

We will find out on Sunday if the Jets preparations will pay dividends on the field when take on the Miami Dolphins.

The game has already come under a lot of criticism from the fans as Dolphins have not only lost a home game, but they lost a divisional home game.

More reasons to be upset

The Dolphins are currently 1-2 this season with their opening day victory over the Washington Redskins as their only success so far.

Losses to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills have certainly highlighted the problems in their roster already.

A game against a very tough defense in the Jets this Sunday will be a true test of the Dolphins offense and we will see if Ryan Tannehill can go one on one with a play-off favoured team and come out victorious.
