Happy 2022 NFL in London fans! Did you have a cracking start to the new year, or has it all been a confusing jumbly mess, like last week in the NFL?
To commemorate the start of a new annum, we look back at the insane week 17 in our New Tears podcast.
Wade & Ryan look back at all of the wild and wacky week that was 17 in the NFL.
In a selfish, meltdown moment, AB lost the ply, jumping up and down in the end zone in the Bucs comeback against the Jets.
Team-mates were quick to interject that AB needs compassion for his mental health at the moment, and that he would no longer play for the team or the NFL.
AB came back to say that the team was drugging him through injuries, and he in no way felt in any condition to play. So he jumped up and down on his ankle in the end zone.
None of this makes sense, but what is becoming apparent is that TB12 has a lot of work and glue to use to get this Tampa Bay team back on track.
Bye Big Ben
In a teary goodbye game, Big Ben said goodbye to the Pittsburgh faithful in a home win against the sad sack Browns.
An emotional victory for Ben, as he waddles off into rehab pool of retirement-despite his Steelers technically in contention for a playoff spot.
Trying to steal some of that retirement thunder was Baker Mayfield, who also quietly kind of retired on Sunday.
After Ben’s tear-jerking goodbye to the Steel City, Baker jumped into say that he is now done for the season, after playing through so many injuries.
Fans know that he should have NOT have tried playing through injuries, but that he also might not be back in Cleveland next season.
Jamaar Chase exploded last week, putting up over 40 points in some leagues with an epic demonstration versus the Chiefs touted D.
Breaking Justin Jefferson’s rookie record from the year before, the tandem of Burrow and Chase has been absolutely electric heading into the post season.
WFT has slowly been erasing all traces of ‘Redskins’ from their records, they made an announcement this week that they will finally be changing their official name in February this year.
Internet sleuths were quick to check domain registrations for potential team names, and low and behold the Washington Admirals pointed back to the team.
Is this the new name? Looks like it.
The NY Giants took a beating from the Bears D in week 17, and limped off into to the post season with way more questions than answers.
The head coach has to go, the QB might need to be traded, and star running back Barkley might have more injury weeks ahead than playing weeks.
Both New York teams were horrible this year, but at least the Jets showed some signs of life, and have impressed with loads of rookies stepping up.
Playoffs in London
NFL Playoffs are coming up, and we will be working with the Sports Bar & Grill to promote them.
COVID has been another kick in the nutters, with many bars still struggling with consistent numbers and government information.
You can help by booking tickets ahead of time, so that the bar knows how many people to prepare for.
Book here for the Sports Bar & Grill Old Street and Clapham, so that we know what dates to expect you.
