Lockout Over, NFL Confirms 5th London Game
LONDON (AP)--With the lockout over, the NFL will return to London for a fifth straight year.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the Chicago Bears at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 23 in the fifth regular-season game in the British capital.

The game was in question because of the lockout. The two sides announced a 10-year labor deal Monday to end the dispute.

The Bucs will be in London for the second time in three years, having lost to the New England Patriots at Wembley in 2009. The Bears beat the Dallas Cowboys in a 1986 preseason game at the old Wembley Stadium.
