Rams Leave for London Matchup Against Patriots
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Ready or not, it's time for the St. Louis Rams to take their game overseas. The team was flying to London on Monday in preparation for next week's game against the New England Patriots.
The Rams (3-4) might have an edge in game preparation, given they'll be training at Arsenal's soccer facilities, which coach Jeff Fisher described as completely self-contained.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke also owns Arsenal, so it was a natural that he was interested in the London option. The Rams had planned on playing in London for three straight years but backed off earlier this year and decided on playing just one game amid fan concerns that Kroenke might move the franchise after the 2014 season.
