Chicago v Tampa Bay

Mark Chapman presents all the fast and furious American Football action as the NFL pays its annual visit to Wembley Stadium. It is the fifth year in a row that London has hosted a regular season game, and this year's match-up sees the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Chicago Bears.

The Buccaneers lost 35-7 to the New England Patriots at Wembley two years ago in what was a miserable season for the franchise, but the improvements under coach Raheem Morris are such that there are high hopes of making the play-offs this season.

The Chicago Bears have also visited Wembley - but that was in an exhibition match in 1986 featuring Super Bowl-winning stars such as Walter Payton, Jim McMahon and William 'The Refrigerator' Perry. The team have not been crowned NFL Champions since then, but are moving in the right direction under coach Lovie Smith.
