|Sleepy Bears Arrive In London For Bucs Game
|LONDON (AP) -- A bleary-eyed Jay Cutler rubbed his face as he stepped up on the podium for his first news conference in London, hours after stepping off an overnight flight across six time zones.
He'll have two days to get over that jet lag before the Chicago Bears run onto the field at Wembley on Sunday to play a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that has spent the whole week in London to get used to the time difference.
According to Cutler and the rest of the Bears, that won't be a problem. Cutler said, "I'm sure everyone is going to get a good night's rest and we'll be ready to roll.''
First, though, Cutler and his teammates warmed up with some playful cricket batting before their first practice at The Oval, one of the world's most famous cricket grounds.
