The NFL world of fans and pundits had strong takes on one interesting broadcast in Week 4. For Americans watching the game, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons played in London on Sunday morning. ESPN+ and Disney+ featured an alternate broadcast of the game.Instead of showing live footage of the game from Wembley Stadium, the ESPN+ broadcast had an animated display of the game with Andy’s room as the mise-en-scène. A claw would reach out and grab the football to bring it back to the line of scrimmage for a new play. The Slinky Dog was the down and distance marker.
NFL World reacts to the Toy Story broadcast
NFL fans had differing opinions on the broadcast. Some fans liked that it could keep their younger children entertained. Others found the broadcast distracting, especially since the feed had a lot of glitches.
Here are the best takes of the experimental broadcast.
Toy Story game’s biggest glitch is the passes and kicks looking like they go straight into ground, but then hearing the announcers say it was a completed pass. This experiment was fun, needs work, kids stopped watching, back to the real broadcast.

This Toy Story version of the London game is very janky and hard to watch

The glitches on the Disney broadcast are very funny. I feel like I’m playing Madden

Couldn’t watch this every week but def something different and fun for the super early games.
