A Week in Review

As we reach Week 4 the NFL is busier than ever. We have two teams in London, one of which we managed to get up close with. We had a game last night between division rivals that should be proof that the NFL is reverting to its normal self after some crazy weeks and we have drug scandals, trash talk and a load of fines.
