THE BIG SMOKE? CBSSPORTS.com's Mike Freeman cited an unidentified Jaguars player as saying that the team is "basically preparing for the Jaguars to play multiple games in London in the future." But Jags TE Marcedes Lewis said multiple games in the city "would be highly stressful for a team." Lewis: "It would disrupt a big part of your season. There would be a competitive disadvantage for a team that did that. What you would end up doing is just changing a lot of what you do so you're mentally ready. But playing two games in London would be pretty rough for any team no matter what you try to do.” Freeman wrote, "Players and teams are increasingly examining the metrics of this and I can't find any player or coach who privately says they like the idea. The belief is that any team playing in London is at a disadvantage" (CBSSPORTS.com, 6/18).
