Monday, December 1, 2008. (AP) -- The New England Patriots will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next season at Wembley Stadium, the third straight year the NFL will stage a regular-season game in the British capital.
The NFL said Monday the game will be played Oct. 25. The Bucs will be listed as the home team, giving up a game in Tampa.
Five weeks ago, the New Orleans Saints beat the San Diego Chargers 37-32 at Wembley. Last season, the New York Giants defeated the Miami Dolphins 13-10. Both games were sold out.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says "we have seen firsthand the excitement that exists for our sport in the UK."
