The Jacksonville Jaguars rumbled to a stunning 27-3 half-time lead over the Buffalo Bills, threw it all away with minutes to spare, then took it all back with a last-ditch touchdown toss from Blake Bortles to win 34-31. One of the standout games of the NFL's International Series, this was a game that had everything. Here a few of those things.
The Miami Dolphins played the New York Jets at Wembley this Sunday. Far from the best matchup in the NFL's International Series so far, the Dolphins looked toothless for the duration, despite the Jets' best efforts to give away the game in the closing minutes. Both teams now head back across the Atlantic for a well-earned week off. In the mean time, here's what we learned from the game.
The choice of games for the 2015 International Series no doubt had its critics amongst the NFL UK community, with many hoping for trips to Wembley from the Colts, Packers, Broncos or Seahawks. Instead we got six teams that lacked any real star power. Changes in the AFC East, however could mean we see our best run of games in this country to date.
For the NFL the two teams have become perfect examples for the rest of the league's teams to aspire to. Both have had short term and long term continued success. Both the Patriots and Seahawks have achieved greatness before a ball is even snapped. But when all is said and done on Sunday, we will know what kind of dynasty we will be talking about for years to come.
