The Bucs will play in London for the second time in two years this season.
ESPN Chicago is reporting the Bucs and Bears will play in this year's international game. The NFL regular-season schedule hasn’t been released yet, but the report cited sources. The game generally is played at Wembley Stadium about midseason.
The Bucs played in the international game in 2009 and are scheduled to be the home team in this year’s matchup with Chicago. Tampa Bay’s attendance problems last season would make this an attractive game to put on the international stage because the Bears went to the NFC Championship Game last season, the Bucs are coming off a 10-6 season and regular-season games in London in recent years have drawn large crowds.
