The Jaguars start the slew of international games by playing the Colts on Oct. 2 at Wembley Stadium afterhaving played in London each of thelast two seasons. Bryan Walters Jersey Its been a great experience, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine. Its a great environment. Our players really enjoy the whole week. I think theres some things that will change based on what weve done over the last couple of years, but its been a great experience for us.Every year its been better and better and I think our apparel (sales), I think thats gone up. I think at one time we were 30th or 31st and now were in the top 10 so theyre starting to recognize us as their team and that were going to be consistently coming over. Its been great. The fans have been really good.The Jaguars have tried different travel arrangements to figure out what works best for game preparation and player preferences. Regardle s, the teamis excited for the trip.Jaguars general Paul Posluszny Jersey manager David Caldwell even called London the teams home away from home.If were going to play a home game away, playing over in London has been a great opportunity for us, Caldwell said Thursday. Its a little bit of a lengthy trip, but our players have grown accustomed to it.The St. Louis Rams were dealt a 45-7 spanking by thePatriots in London in2012. Onlya handful of players remainfrom that 2012 team, but that experience should help when the team heads to London to play theGiants on Oct. 23 at Twickenham Stadium. The Bengals play the Redskins a suming the U.K.will have them at Wembleyaweek later.But the Rams, now back in Los Angeles,haveadditional challenges to face now that they're eight hours behind London time.It looks like we may have to go obviously the schedule is not out yet but theres a chance well go from California to the East Coast and then on to London, Fisher said Wednesday at Lucas Oil Stadium. So were going to put some miles in.Thetravelcould wear on the team, but general manager Les Snead thinks the players will handle it fine.Nowadays with sports, and all the things going on with sleep studies, its unbelievable the research that is coming your way on Tashaun Gipson Jersey how to travel from one time zone to another, how to get rest, how to stay on the same schedule, Snead said Thursday. You find with young players is, they can recover faster than most of us, so it doesnt bother them as much. But were going to come up with a plan to try to attack that.MORE: Oneida rips Redskins London gameEven teams with shorter travel distances say,the Raiders and Texans in Mexico City on Nov. 21 have a unique set of challenges: specifically, playing in a stadium with a7,382-foot elevation, over2,000 feet higher than Denver.Were going to play an addition game out on the road and in that altitude, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Wednesday. The good part is that I feel very good about our ability to travel. I feel good about the strength staff led by Joe Gomes and the way we approach games before and after and how we recover. Itll give us an opportunity to rise to a challenge. In terms of exposure and going down there and representing the Raiders, I think well do a good job of that.Texans coach Bill OBrien, meanwhile, said he will draw on his experiences withthe Patriots when they played in London in 2009.I thought that was a great experience for that team and I think itll be a similar experience going to Mexico City to play Oakland, OBrien said Thursday. The whole deal there is about playing Josh Wells Jersey Oakland and not nece sarily being in Mexico City to go for tours and things like that.In the U.S. or not, regular-season games count the same.The big goal there is to try to go down there and win the game, OBrien added, but I think its a great opportunity for our organization to be on Monday Night Football in Mexico City.
