How about some breakfast football? Well, it’s breakfast on the east coast, and watching from bed on the west coast. The Jacksonville Jaguars “host” the Baltimore Ravens at London’s Wembley Stadium, with the game kicking off at 6:30 a.m. PT. It’s insanity to play football that early, but the NFL has to get that sweet, sweet London money, right?
The game is only available on TV in the Jacksonville and Baltimore markets, but the game will be available on a live stream for everybody to watch. Verizon bought the rights and are streaming it via NFL on Yahoo, so that will be worth a look.
I’m not entirely sure what to make of this game. I think the Ravens cover the 3.5-point spread primarily because their defense should suffocate Blake Bortles and company. I’m curious to see what Leonard Fournette can do, but I think the Ravens handle this one.
This will serve as our game thread, and we’ll have a few more today for later action.
