I wouldn't say it's catching on. There's been a loyal fan base here since the TV coverage started in the Eighties. Around a million
watched the Superbowl this year for example (not me I must point out. No way am I going to stay up until 3 in the morning watching the Ratbirds). Both the Wembley games sold out within weeks ( in the case of the Steelers game within a few days) of the tickets going in general sale. You certainly see quite a few jerseys about around town centres although many of those are, sadly, Pats ( probably because they are New ENGLAND) and Dolphins ( all those vacations in Florida are responsible for those I guess). I do know there is also a lot of interest in both Holland and especially Germany as well as in the UK.
