Pick-six? Tight end? We tested Londoners’ NFL knowledge

American Sports, Featured, Sport
What does London know about NFL rules 10 years after the very first American football game on the British soil? Since 2007, London sports arenas are filled to the top with fans dressed in various NFL jerseys every autumn.
