Well, the NFL's regular season debut outside of North America ends in victory for my New York Giants, 13-10 over the Miami Dolphins. It rained the whole game in London and the field wasn't made for football to begin with, making traction hard to come by. Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw for only 59 yards, though he did run for a touchdown. The game was just plain ugly, but the crowd of around 90,000 at Wembley Stadium was pretty enthusiastic anyway. When the Manning dropped to a knee to run the clock out with less than a minute to go in the game (standard operating procedure in football) the crowd booed loudly, which was pretty funny. All things considered, the atmosphere was pretty good though the surface and weather caused things to be pretty sloppy. The Giants improved to 6-2 with their sixth straight win.
