Default London 2017 games

After that announcement, feeling pretty underwhelmed by the schedule for 2017. Looking at the current records of all teams, it's a whole lot of mediocrity heading for our shores next season. Best of the bunch at the moment are the Dolphins!

Can change from year to year, but generally not seeing it as much to get excited about unfortunately. Thoughts?

Delighted that I'll get to see my team. Missed the game when we played Pittsburgh a few years back.

I've never been to Twickenham before either, do they still do the whole tailgate thing and dedicate a pub to each of the teams like they do before the Wembley games?

Great to have NFL regular seasons games over here as most of us has stated but what a load of pony this bunch are, unless you support one of the 8 teams its a complete load of dross if your average UK NFL fan is exited by these 4 match ups then good for you, as some on here have said before for the cost on average for each game you may as well buy game pass for the whole season and watch your own team every week.

Very grateful to have the chance to watch the NFL here but this latest offering is scraping the bottom of the pile and boy must that pile be small, cannot imagine many of these games selling out in the US, its like trying to sell the US our Premier league and sending over say Sunderland v Everton and Stoke v Watford and trying to tell them how lucky they are to hane meaningful PL games, sorry its a very poor selection we have been served up again.

'Pubs'? In Twickenham? There are none! At least none within a mile of the stadium!

This year the designated pubs were in London proper.

Underwhelming matchups for 2017 and disappointed to have to trek to Twickenham again for the Rams, would much prefer the game be at Wembley. Think we got the short straw there.

I know they designated pubs for the jags and colts, did they do the same for giants and rams when they played at Twickenham but the pubs were in London proper?
