The NFL has mishandled the games that get sent overseas. Instead of sending over quality teams, like they should, they send over low-quality teams, or if they do send over a good team, they still send a bad one over,which creates a blowout.
Just look at the games:
2011: (4-12) Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. (8-8) Chicago Bears. Bears 24-18
2012: (7-8-1) St. Louis Rams vs. (12-4) New England Patriots. Patriots 45-7
2013: (4-12) Jacksonville Jaguars vs. (12-4) San Francisco 49ers. 49ers 42-10
2014: (0-9) Oakland Raiders vs. (6-4) Miami Dolphins. Dolphins 38-14
2014: (1-9) Jacksonville Jaguars vs. (7-3) Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys 31-17
All of those matchups were either between teams that finished .500 or worse or games where a bottom rung team got blown out.
Next year has the Lions and Chiefs, the Dolphins and Jets, and the Bills and Jaguars. Chiefs and Lions looks like a good match-up right now, but there's no indication that they'll still be as good in 2015.
The Dolphins and Jets game doesn't look good right now. The Dolphins are fine, but the Jets are a two-win team, and there's no reason to believe that they'll be some worst-to-first team in 2015.
The Bills and Jaguars matchup is also bad. The Bills look like they'll miss the playoffs again and the Jags are still in rebuilding mode.
Why doesn't the league send over marquee match-ups to England if they want the Brits to buy in? You don't think that Packers-Bears, Ravens-Steelers, Seahawks-49ers, Colts-Patriots, Broncos-Patriots, Broncos-Chargers, or an NFC East matchup would be more interesting than watching two irrelevant, bottom-feeding franchises fumble and bumble overseas?
At the very least stop sending the Jaguars over there.
