One thing is for sure; the NFL knows how to put on a show.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the patriotic land of the United States or across the pond in London – there is nothing quite like the NFL’s pre-game hype.

In front of a sell-out crowd at Wembley, we saw everything from Jaxson de Ville (the Jags mascot) being thrown 200ft in the air to Andrew Luck throwing 64-yard touchdown passes.

As thousands of fans streamed onto the famous Wembley Way, Feel The Beat; the Jags official drumline, were out getting people hyped for the big game - backed by some cheerleaders in minimal clothing, of course.

Scroll down to see the video.

For the first time this season, the Jags looked impressive and more importantly in control of the whole game.

The 83,000 strong crowd were treated to 57-point thriller which ultimately came down to a four down defensive stop by Jacksonville in the last minute and a half of play.


This is the second year on the bounce that they have secured a win in London after their 34-31 win over Buffalo in 2015 and a 30-27 win over Indianapolis today.

Without a shadow of doubt, if an NFL team were to relocate to London, it would definitely be the Jaguars as their owner Shahid Khan, also owns London-based soccer club Fulham FC.

The people of England still have two more International Series games left to look forward at the end of the month as the Giants take on the Rams at Twickenham before Cincinnati host Washington at Wembley.

The NFL International Series is a beautiful thing & long may it continue.
