As for the London games... have we ever sent them a good game? It seems like the only games they get are ugly blowouts or a pissing match between two bad teams.
They tend to send over a 'home' team that isn't very good and doesn't sell out their stadium, so no one will miss them for a week. And then a 'road' team that is usually a marquee franchise the NFL wants to show off.
Surprisingly the scores have been pretty even for the most part, other than the smackdowns the Pats laid on Tampa and St. Louis, which is fine in my book.
Next year is 49ers vs. Jags, which fits the mold.
