International Series 2009

Once again Dan was our main man at Wembley in 2009.

The New England Patriots defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35–7 in the 2009 edition in front of 84,254 in attendance. The game was televised regionally in the United States by CBS and on Sky Sports and BBC One in the United Kingdom. CBS broadcasters Jim Nantz and Phil Simms were again assigned to the game. Simms noted during the opening of the game that “the fans in London came up to him and said they were more excited about this game than the previous two.” It is most notably because the New England Patriots have a massive fan base in the United Kingdom and the fact that quarterback Tom Brady was the center of attention by the British media from the moment the Patriots arrived in London, more than the designated “home” team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, whose owner, Malcolm Glazer, also owns Manchester United.
