Bagshot, England • After being called out by their coach, the Jacksonville Jaguars see their overseas game against the San Francisco 49ers as a chance to redeem themselves to Gus Bradley.

The Jaguars are in London for the first of four NFL International Series games they have signed up to play at Wembley Stadium. They are 0-7 after a 24-6 home loss to the San Diego Chargers that led to criticism from Bradley. The coach, meanwhile, is dealing with personal grief after his father died Sunday.

There are many reasons for the overseas trip to spur the Jaguars, but Bradley is providing great motivation.

Wide receiver Cecil Thompson says Bradley is "our leader; he's our Energizer Bunny."
