NFL UK: NEW YORK JETS BEAT MIAMI DOLPHINS AT SOLD-OUT WEMBLEY

NFL UK: NEW YORK JETS BEAT MIAMI DOLPHINS AT SOLD-OUT WEMBLEY

The atmosphere at the national stadium was rhapsodic, loud and definitively American.

Both the American and English national anthems were followed by London Calling by the Clash as the sun continued to pour down as viewers in Miami and New York started tuning in at approximately 09:30 their time.

The match at Wembley was technically a home game for the Dolphins, and they certainly were not lacking for support.

While the Dolphins were roared onto the turf accompanied by flag bearers, pyrotechnics and cheerleaders, the New York Jets players emerged onto the pitch to jeers.

Nonetheless, the sort-of visitors managed to hammer Miami Dolphins with an astounding 27-14 victory in front of a full house at Wembley to win the first of three NFL matches to be held in London in 2015.

Much of the sell-out crowd were supporting Miami but the Jets started stronger to open a 20-7 half-time lead.

Having been dominated in the opening stages, Miami rallied late on and had a touchdown disallowed before Darrelle Revis and Marcus Williams made two brilliant interceptions in the endzone with just minutes remaining.

Eric Decker and Zac Stacy then added to Chris Ivory’s opening touchdown and two Nick Folk field goals after Miami’s Jake Stoneburner had narrowed the gap.

Kenny Stils’s fourth-quarter score gave the Dolphins hope but the Jets managed to hang on.

Victory was the Jets’ third from their first four matches of the NFL season, while Miami have now lost three out of four.

A total of 12 regular season NFL match have been held at England’s national stadium since the first in 2007, when the Dolphins lost to the New York Giants.

Wembley hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills on 25 October, with Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions to face off on 1 November.
