One game separates the Rhein Fire (4-2) and the World Bowl champion Berlin Thunder (3-3) in the standings. Not only are the Thunder hoping to stretch their winning streak to four games, but they know that a victory by more than four points would give them a head-to-head tiebreaker edge over the team that will host this year's championship game. The Thunder have won three straight games after a 24-17 victory against Barcelona last week after opening the season with three losses. The Fire's four-game winning streak came to a halt with a 17-7 loss at Scotland.
The Frankfurt Galaxy is 5-1 for the first time in franchise history, while F.C. Barcelona are 1-5 for their first time. The Galaxy are looking to record their first winning season in three years and qualify for their fifth World Bowl appearance.
DirecTV will broadcast two games per weekend, FOX Sports Net will televise a "Game of the Week" all season and FOX will broadcast a "Game of the Week" each week during Weeks 6-8, followed by World Bowl X on June 22. Current and former NFL players will be in the broadcast booth throughout the season.
