Buccaneers To Play Seahawks In NFL's 1st Game In Germany

    • The league announced five games to be played outside of the United States as part of its 2022 International Series.
    • Tampa Bay's Tom Brady is set become the first quarterback to start an NFL game in four different countries.

Tom Brady will step into the international spotlight when the Buccaneers face the Seahawks in the first-ever regular-season NFL game played in Germany, the league announced Wednesday.

As part of the 2022 International Series, Tampa Bay and Seattle will meet at Allianz Arena — the home of soccer powerhouse FC Bayern Munich — on November 13. 

Brady is set to become the first quarterback to start an NFL game in four different countries, having already done so in the United States, London and Mexico City.

The 2022 matchup is one of five games that will be played internationally this season, three of them in London where the NFL has held games in the past. 

The other ’22 contests include: Vikings vs. Saints at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 2, Giants-Packers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 9, and Broncos-Jaguars at Wembley Stadium on October 30.

The Denver-Jacksonville game will be the first NFL game streamed exclusively on ESPN+. Through the 2033 season, one annual NFL international game will be streamed exclusively on the service.

The international series will conclude when the 49ers take on the Cardinals on November 21 at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City — also a previous location for an NFL game.
