the NFL paraded a 26-foot-tall robotic version of star Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor around London.

It meant a lot to me, said Eluemunor, a fifth-round draft pick out of Texas A&M. Without that game, I wouldn’t be standing here in the Ravens locker room. That really was my first taste of American football.
