Two London Games: Pats 80. Other teams: 14. Just saying....

London. Yay. I hate London games, but if we have to have them, I’m glad that my team is the ‘visitors’. I feel bad for fans who lose one of eight home games for a huge road trip.

We also get Nantz and Simms. Joy. CBS decides to show everyone the national anthem from London, even if that means fans of other games miss opening kickoff of their games. Wonderfully stupid programming call. Especially that, you know, they never show the Anthem except for the Super Bowl for games in the US. Doubly lame, since the Star Spangled Banner is about a British battle loss. Then the crowd pwns any US crowd by most of the 80k there singing along perfectly with ‘God Save the Queen’. I don’t think any US crowd could do that with ours. Anyway, on to football. Walt Coleman’s the ref. Why isn’t it Hochuli? His detailed explainations are perfect for crowds that don’t know our football well.

Rams D1: Start at the 20

1st and 10: Encroachment on Vince
1st and 5: Bradford to Jackson, 14. We miss the snap thanks to CBS showing us the starters for the Rams.

1st and 10: Ridley for 0
2nd and 10: Brady to Edleman, 8. He slips, or it would have been at least a first down.
3rd and 2: Brady to Lloyd, Fletcher defended the pass. He’s called for PI. I think it’s a bad call. Brandon was held off the line, but let go before 5 yards.
