International Series survey reveals Tom Brady is your favourite player

Tom Brady might not have been playing in last October’s International Series game at Wembley, but he was still the most popular NFL player among fans at the game.

That is one of the fascinating results to have emerged from the fan research conducted by NFLUK among more than 2,000 attendees of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Chicago Bears game. Over the next few days, as an exclusive first and in the aim of being the most transparent of sporting organisations, we’ll be sharing the results of that survey, showing what our fans like, don’t like and how they became NFL fans in the first place.

Of course, Brady will be returning to Wembley in October when the New England Patriots take on the St Louis Rams. You can be there by clicking here.
