Bears Arrive In London, Begin Practice At Cricket Stadium

(CBS) The Chicago Bears have landed in London.

The Bears left Chicago on Thursday night and arrived Friday around noon London time as they prepare to take on the Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium.

The team began practicing Friday at The Oval cricket ground where some players tried their hand at cricket.

The Buccaneers have been practicing in London all week, but coach Lovie Smith said he wanted to keep his team’s routine as normal as possible, so he elected to leave for London later in the week.
