LONDON (AP) — The Buccaneers have arrived in London ahead of their NFL game against the Chicago Bears.
The Bucs landed at Heathrow airport around 10 p.m. local time after opting to spend the whole week in the British capital to prepare for Sunday's game. The Bears are scheduled to arrive in London on Friday.
The Bucs (4-2) are coming off a 26-20 win over New Orleans on Sunday, putting them into a tie with the Saints for first place in the NFC South.
Tampa Bay players will run drills with about 200 students on Tuesday before the team's first practice on Wednesday.
The NFL is playing a regular-season game at Wembley for the fifth consecutive year. The Bucs lost to the New England Patriots in London in 2009.
