Bears Vs. Buccaneers: Chicago Scores Early In Third Quarter, Leads Tampa Bay 21-5

The Chicago Bears took no time at all to extend their halftime lead against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their Sunday London matchup. After a Buccaneers three and out to start the second half, Chicago marched 55 yards down the field in seven plays and just over three minutes, scoring on an 12 yard run by Marion Barber to make the score 21-5.

Tampa Bay has struggled mightily on offense throughout the contest. The Buccaneers have just seven first downs in the game, and have amassed just 154 yards of total offense to the Bears' 322 total yards.

The Buccaneers are going to need some sort of Josh Freeman-led miracle in the fourth quarter if they hope to leave Wembley Stadium with a victory.
