Cheap eats in London, Earl's Court

So I'm about to spend a week in London, and would like to get a well rounded taste of the food there. I've got some gaps in my list, and critiques/downhill alerts are welcome. And my city geography is still pretty weak. Mostly we'll be going to museums and shopping, with a bit of sightseeing here and there.

I want to keep the tabs low, shooting for £15 per person (though so far I think my list is closer to 20-25). I don't think I want a pasty or sandwich on the run for every other meal, but it may turn out that way. Recent posts on this board weren't very promising, but I guess I'll see for myself soon enough.

Most of my info so far is finding places with multiple recs from your posts, along with Time Out, London-Eating, and Beer Advocate. Looking to hit a few pubs, get some good fish and chips at least once or twice, and eat the empire here and there.

I'm staying near Earl's Court. I would like to add a couple places to this short list and maybe a dependable pub:
Any know The Atlas?

Near Notting Hill:
Churchill Arms
Windsor Castle
Costa's Fish

Near Knightsbridge/S. Kensington:
Maybe something from a department store

Near Waterloo/Southwark/London Bridge:
Borough Market
Anchor and Hope
Masters Super Fish

Near Bond St/Oxford Circus:
The Golden Hind
Alternatives south of Oxford St?

Near British Museum (Russell Sq/Goodge St):
The Lamb
Busabe Eathai

Seem out of the way, but considering a trip:
Wenlock Arms (maybe with Angel Mangal?)
New Tayyabs
Spitalfields market (Canteen, S&M, Square Pie)

I've been thinking in terms of location, but I don't know all the places I'll visit, and I'm willing to travel for chow. Where else should I definitely check out the food?

Bonus question:
Anyone know a good place to watch an American football game that will be on late Sunday night (ending 2:30-3 a.m.)? I read Sports Cafe is kind of awful, and Tinseltown is some 24-hour diner (sounds odd). Seems most places that get NFL games don't stay open late enough on Sunday nights.
