The Buccaneers and Bears are set to clash in Wembley Stadium this Sunday as part of the NFL International Series.

For the second time in three seasons, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play a regular-season game at London's Wembley Stadium as part of the NFL International Series. On Sunday, Oct. 23, they'll take on the Chicago Bears and look to build on the momentum from last Sunday's victory against the New Orleans Saints. The game kicks off at 1 PM Eastern (6 PM in London), with FOX's crew of Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, and Tony Siragusa on the telecast.

At 4-2, the Bucs own a share of the NFC South lead; the Saints are also 4-2. The Bears (3-3) are coming off a win, but so far this season that's been a bad sign for them: they are 0-2 following victories so far.

In 2009, the Buccaneers played the New England Patriots at Wembley and fell, 35-7, to drop to 0-7 on the season. But that loss may have been a turning point of sorts for the franchise. Josh Freeman replaced Josh Johnson at quarterback during that loss, and the Bucs have gone 17-14 since.
