NFL regular-season game to be played in London next season

    So the league picks a city that couldn't support a team in the league now known as NFL Europe. I assume selling tickets to this game won't be a problem, though. Goodell calls this an "initiative." It sounds like a ballot question in California.

    Speaking of California: If a California team is picked for this game, that's quite a road trip.

    Send 'em the Lions and Jags. That's a Lions home game. No one will miss it.

    Wasn't it announced two days ago that it would be the Giants and Dolphins?

    Can we get them to send us a regular-season Premier League game? Fulham against West Ham, maybe. It'll be a trip home for a lot of key players.

    The only way a team should agree to that is if he league gives them a bye the following week.

    And the game in London will most likely be Giants-Dolphins:

    This coming from a guy whose team is a much bigger joke than the Lions.

    Since the Browns returned in 1999: Lions 41 wins, Browns 40. Each team has one wild-card loss. But the Lions still have Matt Millen!!!!!
