NFL week seven: New Orleans and London lose Bush
As another week past by in the NFL there was one piece of news in particular that grabbed the attention of the media, the injury sustained by New Orleans Saints star running back Reggie Bush. The third year back sustained a knee injury after being tackled following a kick return and will now miss Sunday's match-up against the San Diego Chargers at Wembley Stadium. The news comes as a blow, not only for British NFL fans, but also to the Saints chances of making a run at the Super Bowl. Saints supporters will be hoping that Bush's absence will not signal the start of a slump as they look to bounce back from the 30-7 defeat at the hands of the impressive Carolina Panthers this week.
The Saints Wembley opponents, the San Diego Chargers, are also struggling to find any sort of momentum this season and this lack of consistency was again shown in a 23-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The Chargers had been many people's tip to go all the way this year with a formidable looking offence that includes Ladainian Tomlinson, however they are not quite living up to expectations and will feel the trip to London could kick-start their revival.
The second annual game to be played at Wembley Stadium, San Diego Chargers at New Orleans Saints, is a 5pm kick-off and throughout the match you will be able to get even closer to the action using our betlive service.
Elsewhere in the NFL, the Tennessee Titans are looking like the team to beat. The Kerry Collins led offence was finally able to give their mighty defence some big point support as they remain undefeated on the season. Their 34-10 demolition of the Kansas City Chiefs was largely thanks to a strong running game with Chris Johnson and LenDale White combining for 317 rushing yards while the Chiefs were the latest in a long line to struggle to find holes in the renowned Titans defence.
The New York Giants were able to get back on track after a week six shock beating by the Cleveland Browns as they walked away from week seven with a 29-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. It was not the most fluent performance of the season but the defending champs will play better and look to be easily moving towards a play-off return.
