Rams star Todd Gurley on London NFL games: ‘They need to stop this.’
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley loves his international fans, but playing for them live in London? Not so much.
Because ultimately we believe, if you ever put a team here, the schedule would have to [have] two or three games in the U.K., followed by two or three games in the States. I don’t think you could expect a team to travel backwards and forwards every week. So we’d like to see what it’s like to play here back-to-back weekends, and I’m sure we’ll get to that in the next couple of years.
So far this season, the league has held two games abroad, both in London. The Jaguars beat the Baltimore Ravens, 44-7, in Week 3, and the New Orleans Saints beat the Miami Dolphins, 20-0, in Week 4. After this Sunday’s game between the Rams and Cardinals, the Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings will wrap up the London series Oct. 29.
The New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders are set to travel to Mexico City on Nov. 19.
Jaguars coach Doug Marrone doesn’t care if Brady’s hand is healthy or mangled. It’s not going to change how he approaches preparation for the AFC Championship Game.
I’m sure he could probably throw left-handed if he has a problem with his right hand and throw just as well, Marrone told reporters on Thursday morning, per the Florida Times-Union.
We don’t expect Brady to suddenly reveal ambidextrous skills gained via the TB12 Method. That’s not some bonus level you unlock for completing the program (or is it?).
But Marrone’s point is simple: Despite Jacksonville’s players being outspoken since their win over Pittsburgh, the team’s coach isn’t overlooking anyone, and definitely isn’t letting talk of an injury to a five-time Super Bowl champion quarterback cloud his vision.
We also have an update: Bigfoot has been spotted in Foxborough.
