This Sunday Wembley Stadium hosts the first of the 2015 International Series NFL games as the Miami Dolphins take on the New York Jets. This is an AFC East divisional battle which will see the two Ryans, Tannehill (Dolphins QB) and Fitzpatrick (Jets QB) go head to head.
Miami are 1-2 and come into the game off the back of a defeat to the Buffalo Bills 41-14. The Jets come into this off of a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles 24-17. On paper the New York Jets look the better team. Some of their players to look out for are Darrelle Revis (cornerback), Brandon Marshall & Eric Decker (wide receivers), fitness depending. For the Dolphins Rishard Matthews (wide receiver) and Ndamukong Suh (defensive tackle) are worth keeping an eye on.
With the Dolphins as the home side I would say they would want to put on a show. I think this will be a tight one but I’m going to put my neck on the line and predict the Dolphins to come out with the win 30-27.
Elsewhere in the NFL as we enter week 4, the New England Patriots look angry, as expected, after the controversial summer they had. They look like a dead cert for the AFC Championship game already and it’s just a case of who they play. The other teams on 3-0 are Panthers, Packers, Falcons, Cardinals, Broncos and Bengals. One of the sides on 0-3 are the Saints, who were my pick for the NFC South, as I thought things couldn’t be as bad as they were last year. Well I was wrong.
Also the Lions, Bears and Ravens are all without a win. Andrew Luck, the Colts QB, is not looking like MVP material so far. Instead, AJ Green (Bengals wide receiver) Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers have all had very strong starts to the season.
Hopefully this gives you a little help on who to look out for if you’re heading to Wembley on Sunday. Follow me for more NFL features and previews this season.
