One game pits a pair of undefeated teams against each other while another game provides a square-off between two winless teams as NFL Europe moves into its third weekend of competition.

Packers wide receiver Shockmain Davis -- who in Week 1 returned a kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown -- and the Rhein Fire (2-0) will look to extend their unbeaten streak when they travel to Frankfurt to face Packers tackle Jason Jimenez and the defending World Bowl Champion Galaxy (2-0), Saturday. The game will be broadcast live on NFL Network at noon CT. NFL Network will replay the game at 7 p.m. CT.

The leading tackler for the Admirals last week, Packers cornerback Derek Combs looks for his first victory of the season Sunday when Amsterdam (0-2) travels to face the winless Scottish Claymores (0-2). The game will be broadcast live on DirecTV at 8 a.m. CT. NFL Network will re-air the game at 7 p.m. CT.

Packers defensive ends Cullen Jenkins and Eric Powell and cornerback Erwin Swiney also will be searching for their first win of the season when the Cologne Centurions (0-2) face the undefeated Berlin Thunder (2-0) Sunday at 9 a.m. CT (not televised).
