NFL Week 7: Chicago Bears @ Tampa Bay Bucs, Sun. Oct. 23, 2011 1 p.m. EST

This year the annual NFL game in London, England will be played by the Chicago Bears and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even though these games overseas just seem to be pointless at this point in time with no plans for expansion just yet, the Bears and Bucs have still had to make the trip and acclimate themselves to a major time change and different surroundings.

Regardless of their surroundings, the Bears and Bucs are trying to compete for a playoff spot in the NFC Conference this season and might end up battling it out for the NFC Wild Card at season’s end. With that being said, this game in London will be huge for both teams as the Bears need to keep winning in order to contend for the Wild Card and the Bucs have to keep up their winning ways to compete for the NFC South division title or the Wild Card.

In my opinion, these two teams are pretty evenly matched coming into this game as both teams have had their fair share of struggles and success this season on both sides of the football. The difference is that the Bears are in more of a must-win situation in Week 7 as they have little chance of competing for the NFC North division title.

Our Predictions for Bears vs Buccaneers

As of right now, the Chicago Bears have been given the edge in this showdown in London, England with a -1 point spread. As the spread indicates, this game will be a hard fought battle, but the Bears should come out on top.

Take the Bears at -1.
