The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be playing a home game in either London or Mexico City next season, the NFL announced.

It's part of the league's annual international games. Four will be in London and one is scheduled for Mexico City. While the dates, times and away teams won't be revealed until the spring, the league unveiled that the Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers will be hosting.

We also know the Bucs won't be playing the Jags, Rams, Raiders or Chargers in those games since the Bucs have the home designation.

This season the league played three games in London. There was supposed to be a game in Mexico City this year, but the Rams vs. Chiefs was moved to L.A. after the field at Estadio Azteca didn't meet NFL standards for playability and consistency.

This is the third time the Bucs will play a regular season game abroad, as the team was in London in 2009 and 2011. Tampa Bay is 0-2 in such games, with losses to the Patriots and Bears.
