VIDEO: The British Fan Perspective From Jags v. 49ers At Wembley Stadium
When the Jacksonville Jaguars faced off against the San Francisco 49ers in London’s Wembley Stadium Sunday, Dee Karsan was watching from the stands.
Karsan, 28, lives in the town of Potters Bar on the outskirts of North London and is a huge fan of the NFL. He said he was lucky enough to snag a couple of tickets to the sold-out event. Sunday marked his first time at an NFL game.
"I'm really looking forward to the game and more so because it’s Jacksonville playing," he said before kickoff.
Unfortunately for the Jaguars, and Karsan, the team kept their winless record in tact following the contest, which they lost 10-42 to the defending NFC champion 49ers.
"It was a good game," he said in the car on the way home. "It's a shame Jacksonville just didn't have the quality to keep up with the 49ers, who pretty much outplayed them throughout the whole game."
The game was the Jaguars' first in London, but it won’t be the last. The team is committed to playing one game a year at Wembly Stadium through the 2016 season.
There has been one regular season NFL game played at Wembley each year since 2007.
