This one one of the first scenes I saw at the NFL International Tailgate Party before the New England Patriots took on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Wembley yesterday.

The NFL made a genuine effort to impress the fans lucky enough to get Tailgate tickets.
Aside from a wide selection of food stalls and a big Coors beer tent there was a huge exhibition stand containing a video screen for all 32 NFL teams.
Some of the teams even  donated a signed shirt, helmet or ball that you had a chance of winning. Some of the exhibition stands are featured below.
A ball signed by Redskins TE Chris Cooley -  doubt Ill win it though
