On both of them at Ladbrokes. 31/10 and 11/2 for Perine and Davis. Think Davis has more chance against The Raiders. They're not great vs the TE

So did anybody have the jags to win by 30+ points - this is a rout!

I don't think them leading/winning (careful not to speak too soon but at 37-0 it would be a miracle by the Ravens) is a shock, a bit of a surprise maybe but not a shock. The nature of it is a shock but going forward I think you take something like this and treat it with caution. Things have snowballed and this,in my opinion, isn't true form. At the same time the Ravens certainly have been found out a bit, especially offensively.

I'm surprised the Ravens don't just take their starters out and take this one on the chin.

Rumour has it the ravens only turned up on Friday in London - if so, talk about poorly prepared...

I definitely think there is something in being prepared and Jags are old hands at this trip. The Ravens heads may have also been half way into Pittsburgh next week.

Some teams come straight over on the Sunday night and base themselves in London, others prepare in the US and fly in for the game like they would any other NFL game.

It'd be interesting to see the W/L record for each type of preparation

It's the London Jaguars, after all - a home from home from them. It may just be me but I think if this had actually been played in Jacksonville we'd have seen a much different result.

For the prop guys - I completely ran out of time to put together a blog this weekend. I know it's early days for it as a blog so no real harm done, especially as you guys posted your thoughts here. But I would love it to be a regular feature and that is most definitely the plan. I had Friday evening set aside to do it, but ended up having to go out.

Next week, still as planned, don't worry! :win:

Well done to Jacksonville, Blake Bortles lit it up in London, wonder how much this will give him a boost for the rest of the season? The spotlight has been on him as being the weak link in this Jaguars team. As for the Ravens, was watching a pre game interview of Joe Flacco on Nfl.com last night, and I must say, he looked jet lagged,wonder how the rest of the team was, and who was responsible for the preparations of this trip?
? Not taking anything away from Jacksonville though. They are used to this trip to London and it was a fantastic result for them.

If I tried to put Week 3 into words I'd have to write a book! Madness but it's what makes the game great.

My Acca had little chance but in the Experts blog our outsider blog was killed by the Lions last gasp effort being overturned! It would have been depending on the Chargers though!

Blount going in for me has paid handsomely though although Orleans Darkwa getting a goal line carry just before he half and getting stuffed was a bit gutting.

I did back Jacoby Brissett again after putting him up last week but was 11/2 but can't really claim too much credit as hadn't put it on here also doubled him a Lucky 15.

Perine has come in from 3/1 to 5/4 anytime for the Redskins in the late game.

Cincinnati have decided to play some football this season! Where has this team been for the last couple weeks?? So far serving it to the Packers in Green Bay offensively AND defensively and looking pretty good in the process. 21-7 so far.

Seahawks the more predicable bore in Tennessee, down 6-0 at the moment and the Chiefs holding off the Chargers 17-6 as the half approaches.
