They do say that highlights will be available on the BBC sports website. I just hope that they are not disappointed if the viewing figures for the Wembley games are low, given that about 70,000 fans will actually be at the game!

As someone has already said, better late than never!

I wonder how Sky Sports feel about this.
The International games were presumably part of the deal negotiated with Sky. but I wonder if Sky knew when they signed that the NFL were also talking to a free to view operator about those same games and so not being an exclusive deal for Sky?

As a Sky subscriber I'll be watching on Sky to make sure I get my moneys worth from my subscription.

I take it when they sat that the first London game is "live and exclusive in BBC TWO" that means exclusive to terrestrial TV?

I am willing to bet decent money the BBC will have better analysts than Sky plus the added bonus of no ad breaks like Sky.

Either way he's not an analyst he's a presenter.

Not to nit pick, but in previous years, the BBC have had Alex Smith, Tiki Barber and Danny Amendola...I'll take any of them over Neil and Cecil.

He left the BBC about 3 years ago, I think the Olympics was has last job before he moved to BT.

If the BBC manage to find a worse presenter/analyst duo than Cadle/Reynolds I'll be very surprised.

Well, it'll almost certainly be Mike Carlson - so (IMO at least) yes, better analysts.

Your mileage may vary of course.

Plus a host (who's the BBC guy who did the late-season red button coverage a couple of years ago ? When they actually had a host and a pundit sat in what looked like the NFL Store stockroom rather than just having the footage and showing the standings, results and schedules with music at the US commercial breaks. I've completely forgotten his name), and an ex-player pundit who's either completely neutral or representing one of the teams involved (one for each team if the league makes them available and/or the BBC can afford them both).
