Falcons DT Babineaux in London to promote game

BabineauxInLondonAtlanta defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux recently went to London to promote next season’s game against the Detroit Lions, which is set for Oct. 26.

The NFL will play three regular-season games over a span of six weeks in Wembley Stadium.

Babineaux, who re-signed with the Falcons this offseason, and Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan met with British NFL fans on the trip.

Here’s what Babineaux told SkySports.com during his visit:

“It’s my first time over to London and I love what I’ve seen,” Babineaux said. “I love the history and culture over here and the people have been very welcoming.

“I’m already looking forward to coming back over in October to display my talent along with my team-mates. We’re going to come out here, have a good time and put on a show for the UK.

“I’ve been getting an insight from John Sullivan about what to expect and he says the atmosphere is like playing in the Super Bowl. I’ve not played in a Super Bowl, so this is the next best thing.”
