Ndamukong Suh: 'Time difference wasn't an issue for Wembley match'

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh insists that his side had no issues with the time difference in their clash against the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh believes that his side had no problems adjusting to the time difference ahead of their International Series clash at Wembley Stadium.

The Lions recorded a dramatic victory over the Atlanta Falcons in the match, but were forced to come from 21 points down to achieve the win after a slow start in the first half.

However, Suh has insisted that their problems were not down to playing at a different time than they are accustomed to, as kickoff took place at 1.30pm GMT, four hours earlier than usual for the players.

He told reporters: "I felt like everybody was adjusted. Just looking at them and watching them and through Friday, Saturday, and even Thursday, especially coming out to practice, we had a great practice.

"Even Wednesday, when it was really tough waking up and just in certain situations. I think we adjusted well. So I don't believe that was the issue."

Detroit are now 6-2 in their season following their victory over the Falcons.
