As the UK and Ireland’s official sports betting partner of the NFL, 888sport combined with a host of YouTube influencers and the London Blitz, enabling them to dip their feet into the water of the intense world of American Football. 

Toughened by a turbulent training camp, Josh Denzel, Man Like Haks, Rory Jennings, Stevo the Madman and Ade Olapido were as ready as they’d ever be to integrate themselves into the madness of an American football collision between Tamworth Phoenix and London Blitz. 

The series coincided with the NFL’s eagerly anticipated return to the UK at Tottenham Hotspur stadium, featuring New York Jets vs Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins v Jacksonville Jaguars following a period of absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It was Love Island star Josh Denzel who stepped up during the training camp and his skillset shone through during the game, as he made a successful cameo appearance, showing fleet footwork to progress up the pitch for his team. 

On the other hand, Chelsea commentator Rory Jennings utilised his skills to duck out of the action and avoided being subbed in at all costs. 

Haks was the first pundit to don the orange of 888 and enter the action, and despite extensive efforts and an abundance of heart, his feet let him down as he got tangled and took a tumble before he could influence the tie. 

The fear was radiating off the influencers, however, comedian Stevo the Mad Man didn’t let it hinder him as he charged straight forward to battle and did all he could to put in a strong tackle and alter the run of play in the favour of the Blitz. 

The Red Zone is part of 888sport’s continued focus on NFL content, with it building on its strengthened relationship with the league as a key partner at a time when the NFL continues to grow its focus on emerging markets like the UK.
