It's London week in the NFL. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who played American football across the pond two seasons ago, return to Wembley to "host" the Chicago Bears. The London experiment is now in its fifth year. The game hasn't sold out -- the NFL can blame the lockout for that -- but it has been well-attended in the past. But can interest be sustained if the NFL placed a team in London, or would it be a novelty act that faded away?

It may be third down and 20 to go with the clock running out. But winning touchdowns have been scored in the last seconds, and that can happen in this competition.Perhaps not even the NFL owners know all the reasons they awarded one of the new teams to Charlotte but failed to agree on the other.
