Olympic Way, which leads up to Wembley Stadium was awash with the stars and stripes of the American flag as the NFL International Series got underway.

The New York Jets beat the Miami Dolphins 27 points to 14 in a game which started with both American and British national anthems followed by London Calling by the Clash.

The mood was distinctly American as flags of the two teams left Wembley Park looking more like a US city than London.

Hotdog and popcorn stands gave the area a Stateside feel.

Fans of both teams packed the restaurants and bars of the newly revamped area around the stadium and the London Design Outlet welcomed all shoppers.

Sunday’s match was the first of three NFL games due to take place this autumn.

Next is Jacksonville Jaguars versus Buffalo Bills on October 25 and then Kansas City Chiefs versus Detroit Lions on November 1.
