Bears won :mrgreen:

Only 1 win behind the other NFC North teams, Packers on Thursday Night is going to be such a tough ask.

Yesterday, I went to Wembley to watch Ravens v Jaguars and I couldn't believe what I saw from the Ravens. Their performance was so embarrassing and it was unlike for them to give away so much points to the Jaguars. Despite the loss, it was a fantastic experience and I truly enjoyed it. It was so different atmosphere from the football stadium and everybody were wearing their own favourite team. A brilliant day!

Now, I can't wait to go again this Sunday for New Orleans Saints! :datass: :toot:

Oh, I support the players to knee down during the national anthem and I don't see anything wrong with it. Shut up President Trump. :fp:

Looking forward to the Bears at the Packers tonight. I've been doing some reading and it sounds like the Packers have a terrible offensive line, so hopefully the they'll be able to get at Rodgers. Although it sounds like the Bears won last week more despite Glennon rather than because of him, so not sure how good they'll be on offense, especially in the air.

Unfortunately I won't be able to watch live as I have work tomorrow, but I'll be recording it and avoiding the result so I can watch it with a few beers tomorrow evening. My first Bears game as a fan :D

Disappointed we didn't test the weak offensive line enough in the first half, but what do you expect with Glennon at QB.

Getting a bit pathetic that Fox is sticking to Glennon who can barely accurately throw and doesn't like to use his feet. I'm all for letting Rookie QBs slowly develop, but you have to let Tribusky free.

Just finished watching the recording after avoiding the score all day... Not the greatest first game as a Bears fan! I knew I was in for a rough ride when the Packers scored on their first drive, and Glennon promptly lost the ball on the first offensive play :lol:

Good win for the Packers, that ^ :datass: Back on track now hopefully, and can build some momentum.

Reminder that Dolphins-Saints is on BBC 2 today (1:45pm, kick-off 2:30pm). No real affinity to either team, but go Dolphins!

New Orleans Saints! :datass: :wub:

A completely shut out to the Dolphins by 20-0. :nod:

It was fantastic atmosphere and glad I went there to watch it. As a fan or not, you all should go there one day if possible and it is wonderful a day out.

Who Dat!

That is significantly more than Sky usually gets, right? Although it benefited from the time of day, of course.

Massively. The London game from the previous week (which was also aired on Yahoo) got 80,000.

The Falcons v Lions got 36,000; Chargers/Chiefs 27,000. RedZone 22,000 (available to all Sky customers).

Bring all sport to the BBC, it's just better. That's my conclusion.

Just confirmed that I have tickets to see Ravens at Vikings in MN on the 22nd at the US Bank Stadium Minneapolis. :datass:

Now, do I take a knee during the National Anthem? :)

Eagles up to 4-1, we are actually quite good this year. :shock:

Would love some playoff action, feels like far too long. Not Bills long, obviously, but long enough.

Watching various games through RedZone and I've been rather surprised at the number of empty seats at quite a few of the stadiums. Is this a common problem?

Yeah I noticed it too. Not sure if the Hurricane Maria, Irma they’ve had a while ago affected the people to attend the stadium. Or are they losing some fans?

Just after two minutes left the Cowboys were ahead 31-28 and the Packers scored a touchdown to make it 35-31 with ten seconds left on the clock. :o

I thought it was an on-going issue and that attendances had been down for a while now. Didn't they falsely report the attendance at a game a couple of weeks back, to the point where they figure they gave was higher than the capacity of the stadium? :slol: I read something like that anyway. I think the combination of ticket prices and poorly thought out team moves/stadium locations have been a factor. A mate's going to see the Giants play later in the year and the tickets - right at the top as far from the field as you can get - were £150 each. :dread:

A guy I work with is a big Giants fan, he's not enjoying this season at all. Imagine paying £150 to watch them at the moment :lol:
