<b>Wembley, the home of (American) football</b><br/>
The NFL staged its first game outside North America when the Miami Dolphins played the New York Giants at Wembley in 2007. The game was hugely successful in heightening awareness of American Football in England as well as earning the powers that be a few quid thanks to a sell-out crowd at the national stadium. It's become a regular fixture on the calendar now with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers having battled it out under the Wembley arch last month, while talks are ongoing as to how the NFL can continue to expand its reach.

If it ever went away, Tebow-mania is back in the NFL. For much of the regular season, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow made himself a national cult – hurling winning, last-minute touchdown passes and then kneeling on the touchline to give thanks to the Almighty for his deliverance, in a gesture that spawned its own word, "Tebowing". But in the last few games the magic had deserted him, and the Broncos barely made the play-offs.
