After the meeting, the chancellor made clear he wants to have an National Football League franchise based permanently in London within the next five years. I’m not as confident as most, it would appear.
Team officials said the toilet paper in London is thinner than what the team members would be used to from the United States. “Not happy, I would say”. If their toilet paper situation is so dire and I’m advising Mr. Kraft, I’d tell him to get his paper empire rolling (no pun intended, but I won’t disown it) and corner the market, posthaste.
On the season, the Miami Dolphins average 271.1 yards in passing and 72.7 yards in rushing.
If another complete and calamitous defeat befalls the Dolphins for a second consecutive Sunday, owner Stephen Ross will consider making a coaching change during the bye week.

Players have Friday night in London to themselves. They have to step up more than they did last week, as getting to Ryan Tannehill will throw off the entire Dolphins offense. After all, Bowles said, the players have enough money to come back in the off-season.
The Jets also arrived in London this morning, one hour earlier than the Dolphins. The Dolphins will be out to prove they still deserve to be included in the AFC playoff discussion and the Jets will be out to prove they belong at the front of that same conversation.
‘I think there are a few similarities between this year and last year with the aspect of coming off two tough losses and it’s a big game for us.
Newly laced up, the Giants scored 27 unanswered points in the final quarter to win in shocking fashion.
What’s your take on the game?
A British reporter asked Marshall about the importance of Sunday’s “match” with the Dolphins. Let’s use round numbers and say that between players and coaches the Jets have 70 guys. Please leave us a comment below and join the discussion. Marshall, unprompted, talked about how much he enjoys antiques (particularly antique bags), and sung the virtues of London’s famed Portobello Market.
