The San Francisco 49ers arrived in London early this morning, following a red eye flight out of Nashville. The 49ers left around 10 pm Nashville time Sunday evening, and arrived in London around 1 p.m. local time today. Sean Ryan from NFL UK is taking all sorts of pictures throughout the trip, and he got these from the team's arrival at Heathrow.
The biggest concern right now is getting over potential jet lag. The late flight out of Nashville could help, as long as players got some sleep on the flight. And if players were not able to sleep, then they better plan on staying up all day. Of course, the upside to traveling to London today gives them all week to get on track for Sunday.
We'll be back with plenty of pictures throughout the week as the team prepares for their Week 8 matchup. The team will be north of London in a town called Watford. They'll be getting down to London for sight-seeing and NFL events, but they can avoid distractions to some extent.
