After the impact of Hurricane Irma this weekend, the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Week 2 game in Tampa Bay will be played as scheduled.

The Bears and Buccaneers will play on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium.

The Buccaneers regular-season opener on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins was rescheduled due to the anticipated impact of Hurricane Irma. 

Tampa Bay, along with Miami, will play 16 straight regular-season games after their Week 1 matchup was moved to Nov. 19.

The Bears (0-1) lost their home opener to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, 23-17.
