Gus Bradley says London has 'unbelievable' response to Jaguars

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars may be more popular in London than in Jacksonville.

The Jaguars hosted a fan rally in Trafalgar Square in London on Saturday and an estimated 70,000 fans showed up to celebrate the team's appearance, according to the Florida Times-Union. The support of the crowd was so large for the Jaguars, that it took head coach Gus Bradley by surprise.

When asked about the reaction that the Jaguars received in London, Bradley was impressed. "I didn't expect this," Bradley said. "This is unbelievable."

The Jaguars are signed for three appearances in three years at Wimbley Stadium, including Sunday's matchup against the 49ers. It was announced recently that the Cowboys would be Jacksonville's London opponent in 2014. The fan reaction to the Jaguars could mean that more games could be added to their overseas slate.

At 0-7, the Jaguars are still looking to get their first win of the season. Perhaps the overwhelming support by the London crowd could lead to a major home-field advantage for Jacksonville.
