This weekend the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets will descend on London for a seasonal match-up that will put one of the two teams on at least two wins – although, given the state of these franchises, we wouldn’t be surprised if they both found a way to lose. The game – the first of a two-part series – will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, home to Harry Kane when he’s not pining for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
To mark the occasion, EA Sports has rolled out a pretty big update for Madden NFL 22, which adds in the London-based stadium – you can already select Wembley from previous releases – and a bunch of kits inspired by the soccer team. The publisher’s also running a European exclusive 30 per cent discount on the game, and has erected a mural outside of the stadium to advertise it.
