Bears Vs. Buccaneers: Tampa Bay Trails Chicago 7-2 After First Quarter

It has been an ugly start to the London matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears. The Bears lead 7-2 after one quarter of play, thanks to the legs of running back Matt Forte and some pretty terrible tackling by Tampa Bay defenders. In fact, Forte is responsible for all of the points in the game, as he was stopped in the end zone for a safety, accounting for the two measly points the Buccaneers have mustered.

Already without LeGarrette Blount for this game, Tampa Bay lost Earnest Graham to a leg injury midway through the first quarter. Josh Freeman, the backfield is all yours.
