Rumors were floating on twitter yesterday that the NFL was going to send the New York Jets and the St. Louis Rams to London England next year for a regular scheduled game. The first thing that floated in my brain was, oh man, we complain about the long trip to the west coast, I know this can’t be an advantage for the Jets. Well the rumores turned on to be partly true as the Rams and an AFC east team were correct, but it’s the Patriots NOT the Jets.
I know many fans of the Jets from the UK, many of whom I know on twitter, will be disappointed but I’m kind of relieved. First it won’t be a home game (one less game I get to see as a season ticket holder).
NFL announces Rams will host regular-season game in London for next 3 yrs. They host Pats in 2012, so Jets won’t play in UK in near future.

NFL in London: Rams to head to London for three straight years. Be pretty cool to be a St. Louis beat writer in that stretch.
