Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns against a Jacksonville defence that had four players detained at a London nightclub incident in a 24-18 NFL triumph on Sunday.
The reigning Super Bowl champion Eagles improved to 4-4 with the Wembley Stadium victory while the Jaguars fell to 3-5.
Early Saturday morning, Jaguars defensive backs Barry Church, Ronnie Harrison, D.J. Hayden and Jarrod Wilson were detained and released by police after an issue involving a bar bill, according to a posting on the NFL’s website.
“We are aware that four of our players were detained over restitution of a bill,” the Jaguars said in a statement. “The matter is being resolved and the players are with the team. Any discipline will be handled internally.”
Several players went to a club on Friday night, were sent bottles of champagne and other high-end liquors and ran up a huge bill, according an NFL Network report, which said players thought the bottles were free but instead were put on their bill.
When the check arrived, players refused to pay and an argument ensued. Police made several arrests but none of the players were charged and the matter was resolved with the players released and bill paid, according to the league website.
