The Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off in London, England Sunday, the fifth straight year the NFL has held a regular season game across the pond.
For the fifth year in a row, the National Football League will be playing a game at Wembley Stadium in London, England. This year's exported American football product will see the 3-3 Chicago Bears take on the 4-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is actually Tampa Bay's second trip in three seasons to Wembley. Look Josh Freeman, Big Ben, Parliament.
The Buccaneers rebounded nicely last week, defeating the New Orleans Saints 26-20 after having their doors blown off two weeks ago in San Francisco 48-3 by the 49ers and uber backslapper Jim Harbaugh. Chicago is coming off an easy 39-10 win against the Vikings, a game that cost veteran Donovan McNabb of Minnesota his starting job.
