Football News

The NFL was back in London today as the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts faced off at Wembley in front of nearly 90,000 fans.

The Jaguars came away with a 30-27 win in a game that really came to life in the fourth quarter and had the fans on their feet.

However, unless you were one of those fans in attendance, there may well be some things from the game that you missed. Let's run down four of them.

National Anthems

Even before the game kicked off, the crowd were treated to some excellence. The Star Spangled Banner and God Save The Queen were absolutely magnificent and well received by all in the stadium. Special mention has to go to Jim Cornelison for his Star Spangled Banner rendition that drew thunderous applause.

It's something small, but when done well, there is nothing better. Round of applause for all involved and defintiely good enough to make the list.

Wembley's Bass

Bass levels. It's something that you never really pay attention too unless it is just way too obvious. In Wembley, it is absolutely too obvious.

At some points during the game, the entire stadium felt like it was shaking due to the very questionable audio choices of those in charge of such things. You expect the ground to vibrate at a Chase and Status gig, not at an NFL game.

Crowd Noise

According to some reports, the London crowd seemed completely dead to those watching on television. However, in the arena, that wasn't the case at all.

We will admit that the first half was a bit dull, which definitely had an effect on the crowd. But in the second, with the Colts mounting a big comeback, the crowd absolutely got into it. That was confirmed by two huge roars in the fourth quarter.

When Allen Hurns and Phillip Dorsett scored their respective touchdowns, Wembley erupted like England had just scored in the World Cup Final. No one can say the British fans don't care.

Kiss Cam Blunder

We'll end on a lighter note and that was the traditional kiss cam blunder. The very first "couple" shown on screen were actually a mother and son, with the man seemingly screaming "that's my mum" at the camera. An excellent moment for everyone except those two individuals involved.
