Since 2007, it has been a fall tradition: Two NFL teams travel to London to represent the league in an international regular season game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are no strangers to this transatlantic affair; in 2009, they made the trip to the U.K., and just a few weeks ago, they made a repeat trip across the pond.
In fact, last week's return was a symbolic one for the Bucs. It was in London two years ago that then-rookie head coach Raheem Morris put then-rookie QB Josh Freeman in a game for the first time. It came in a blowout loss to the Patriots, but still marked the auspicious beginning of a new era for the Bucs.
Freeman has been the starter ever since, and with Morris behind him, the duo has Tampa Bay running better. The NFL Season: A Biography presented by SAP continues with an all-access look inside the Bucs' weeklong voyage to London, and their battle with the Chicago Bears at Wembley Stadium.
The young and hungry Buccaneers arrive in London early to soak up some culture and to prepare for their pivotal battle with the Chicago Bears.
