From NFLUK.com:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the New England Patriots when the National Football League continues its International Series at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday, October 25, 2009, the NFL announced today.

The Buccaneers and Patriots have been two of the NFL’s most successful teams in recent years, combining to win four of the past seven Super Bowls.  Both clubs are strong contenders for a return trip to the playoffs this season.

The game between the Buccaneers and Patriots, both of whom are currently challenging for places in this season’s playoffs, will take place in Week Seven of the 2009 season and will be shown live in the United States on CBS, kicking off at 5:00 p.m. UK time (1:00 p.m. ET).

There’s one road trip I won’t be going on next season. Who wants to watch a football game with a bunch of heathens ? Not this guy. I’d rather practice CPR with Sally Struthers. I just hope we get to see Fergie’s rendition of London Bridge.
