Last year, the Detroit Lions made their first trip to London as part of the NFL's International Series, and they gave fans a pretty memorable game with their last-second comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons. The win was a big one for the Lions, as it sent them into their bye week with an impressive 6-2 record.
This year, the Lions are headed back to London to face the Kansas City Chiefs at Wembley Stadium on Nov. 1. In advance of this year's game, the Lions sent running back Joique Bell to London on Wednesday for the NFL's International Series media tour. Here are some of the highlights from Bell's day in London:
