Judging by both teams’ previous records in London, the winner of this game should be the Jets.
The Jets defeated the Miami Dolphins in 2015 in Wembley Stadium.
The Falcons lost their previous game in London in 2014.
They blew a 21-0 halftime lead to fall to the Detroit Lions.

Wilson Vs. Ryan
Jets have a great chance to get some momentum going before the bye with a good, complete team win vs. Falcons.
It’s such a good matchup for the Jets.
ATL has a bad OL, Matt Ryan looks like a statue, they have no WRs and their defense is bad.
Jets’ WRs should also dominate.

This game is the tale of two opposites.
The Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson is just beginning his NFL career.
Matt Ryan at 36 years of age is in his 14th NFL season.
Wilson is having typical rookie struggles and has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns.
He has four touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Ryan has eight touchdowns and three interceptions.
Neither quarterback has thrown for 1,000 yards through the first four games.
Ryan is the closest with 990 yards, and Wilson has 925.
Both teams want to pick up a win before entering their Week 6 bye weeks.
Benefit And Drawback Of London Games
The biggest benefit of the NFL playing in London for US fans is that they can wake up to live football on Sunday morning.
West Coast fans can rise extra early to see the kickoff.
A potential problem for US viewers is if their television provider does not carry NFL Network.
That is not as big of a showstopper now as it was in the early years of NFL games in London because of all the streaming sources.
