NFL Europa Week 5: Goodwell Continues Solid Play


Green Bay Packers linebacker Tim Goodwell had his second straight productive game in NFL Europa this past weekend despite Berlin's 24-10 loss to Cologne.

Goodwell did not start but came off the bench to record five tackles (three solo) and one pass defensed.

Two of his solo tackles came against running back A.J. Harris for no gain on a second-and-4 play and against running back Derrick Ross for a loss of 1 yard on a second-and-2. His pass defensed came against tight end Tony Curtis in the end zone and helped force Cologne to settle for a field goal.

Last week, Goodwell played for the first time this season since recovering from a back injury and led Berlin with 10 tackles and a pivotal forced fumble.

Among other Packers in NFL Europa in Week 5, wide receiver Carlton Brewster had one catch for 20 yards for Berlin. Despite his least productive game to date, Brewster still leads the league in receptions (26) and receiving yards (372).

Offensive lineman Adam Stenavich started at left guard for Amsterdam for the fifth straight week and helped the Admirals rush for 114 yards on 27 carries (4.2 avg.) in a 24-17 loss to Hamburg.

Defensive back Alvin Nnabuife came off the bench for Cologne to record one solo tackle, while defensive back Antonio Malone came off the bench for Rhein and had one assisted tackle.

Malone's play was a significant one, helping to drag down a Frankfurt receiver after a 3-yard reception on third-and-5 with less than 3 minutes, 30 seconds to play. On the next snap, Frankfurt missed a field goal and Rhein held on for a 27-24 win.
