Yahoo broadcasted the first global online game with the Jacksonville Jaguars beating the Buffalo Bills in London. How did that do? What else went on in the world of the Jacksonville Jaguars?
"More than 15 million people sampled Yahoo’s live stream of an NFL game on Sunday, the two partners said on Monday. But viewership was significantly lower than it would have been on television.Most of the audience for the Bills-Jaguars game was in the United States, but about 33% came from other countries, the partners said.Sunday’s live stream marked the first time that a single company had distributed an NFL telecast all around the world via the Internet."
"It was the defense that gave the Jacksonville Jaguars a big lead over the Buffalo Bills at Wembley Stadium, but it was Bortles that put the final touch on the 34-31 victory by completing a 31-yard touchdown pass to Allen Hurns with 2:16 remaining.“The offensive line, they did a great job as far as just giving Blake a lot of time,” Hurns said of the winning play. “Blake does an awesome job of just keeping plays alive.”The Jaguars (2-5) won their first game in London after losing in each of the past two seasons at Wembley, the home of England’s national soccer team. The Bills (3-4) were playing in the British capital for the first time."
"The offense performed when it mattered but had quite a few errors. Bortles had one his worst performances in a while, but orchestrating that drive late was a big moment for him and the Jaguars. Running back T.J. Yeldon had a fantastic game (115 yards, one score), and his efforts were a big help to the Jaguars’ first-half offense and the first drive of the second half.The wide receivers were decent, and the tight ends were relatively average. The Jaguars offensive line had its best game of the year so far, and the holes it opened for Yeldon and the protection for Bortles was a one-two punch that hasn’t been seen this season."
