The NFL has confirmed that the Buccaneers will host the Bears at London's Wembley Stadium in Week Seven.

There had been some doubts if the league would choose to play the game in England because of the shortened offseason as a result of the lockout. Had the league been unable to move the game, it would have been played at Raymond James Stadium on the same date, Oct. 23.

This is the fifth consecutive year the NFL has played a game in London. The Bucs played in the 2009 game, losing to the Patriots.
