NFL Europe Opens Third Week


Two Green Bay Packers will look to remain undefeated as NFL Europe moves into its third weekend of competition Saturday.

Members of the Frankfurt Galaxy (2-0), punter Tim Morgan and safety Jeremy Unertl will look to help their team to a 3-0 start, hosting the winless Berlin Thunder (0-2) Saturday at noon CT.

Morgan proved vital in the Galaxy's victory last week, punting seven times for a 42.1 average and recovering an onsides kick en route to NFLE Special Teams Player of the Week honors. Unertl contributed three tackles and broke up a pass from Packers quarterback Craig Nall of the Scottish Claymores.

Nall leads the NFLE with 415 yards passing through two games. His Claymores (1-1), including Packers safety Bobby Jackson and linebackers Isaac Keys and Jermaine Petty, face off Saturday against the Rhein Fire (1-1), televised live to United States audiences on Fox Sports Net at noon CT.

Packers wide receiver Travis Williams will be in action with the Amsterdam Admirals (1-1), who meet the Barcelona Dragons (1-1) Saturday at 10:30 a.m. CT.

After being held without a catch in Week 1, last week Williams made two grabs for 27 yards.
