In some ways, an NFL game in London can be approached the way colleges approach a bowl game, Caldwell said.
Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush continues to battle an ankle injury leading up to Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Atlanta Falcons are a long way from the Georgia Dome.

Couplin had been cut by the Lions before the team flew to London Monday, while Powell made the seven-hour trip.

With a little bit of planning, a trip to Europe can be surprisingly affordable.
