Even though I think it's unfair to both teams to have to make this long trip in the middle of the season, I hope they put on a good show so the English fans can see why American football is so much more exciting than soccer.

Football can never hope to compete against soccer in Europe (and especially not in England, which has the world's richest league). What it can do though, is to continue to carve out a niche as a well-supported, minority sport.
The NFL has had a good profile in the UK since the mid-80s. There is a good solid fan-base and a better understanding of the game than is often credited. The fans at this Sunday's game will be fans of all teams. I'll be there (a Dolphins fan since 1984) and whilst I don't really care who wins, I am hoping for an exciting game, like you say.
