NFL confirms Bears-Bucs game in London is a go this season

LONDON -- Now that the lockout is over, the NFL confirmed it will return to London for a fifth consecutive year.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the Chicago Bears at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 23 in the fifth regular-season game in the British capital.

The game was in question because of the lockout. The NFL and the players association announced a 10-year labor deal Monday to end the dispute.

The Bucs will be in London for the second time in three years, having lost to the New England Patriots at Wembley in 2009. The Bears beat the Dallas Cowboys in a 1986 preseason game at the old Wembley Stadium.
