NFL Europe: Week 3 Recap


Green Bay Packers safety Jeremy Unertl broke up three passes, including two fourth-quarter interceptions, to help the Frankfurt Galaxy move to 3-0 in NFL Europe action over the weekend.

The Galaxy defeated the Berlin Thunder (0-3) 41-21 to remain NFLE's only undefeated team.

Unertl's first interception occurred just into the fourth quarter when he brought in a Henry Burris (Chicago Bears) pass at the Frankfurt 25-yard-line and returned it 16 yards.

His second pick came on the game's final play, intercepting backup quarterback Phil Stambaugh in the end zone for a touchback.

In addition to those interceptions, Unertl also made five tackles.

Packers punter Tim Morgan was needed only twice by the Galaxy, first booting a 41-yarder out of bounds, and later pinning the Thunder at their own 18-yard-line with a 34-yard effort.

In other NFL Europe action, the Rhein Fire (2-1) defeated the Scottish Claymores (1-2) 34-17.

Starting for the Claymores, Packers quarterback Craig Nall completed 10 of his 21 passes (47.6 percent) for 140 yards, with no interceptions or touchdowns.

Nall was sacked only once, but suffered a sprained ankle on an 11-yard completion to Mike Malan (New England Patriots) midway through the fourth quarter.

Nall's replacement Shane Stafford (New England Patriots) finished off the drive and the game, completing 11-of-18 for 96 yards and one touchdown, with two interceptions.

Defensively for the Claymores, Packers safety Bobby Jackson made four tackles and broke up a pass, while linebackers Isaac Keys and Jermaine Petty combined for two tackles.

Also on the losing end in Week 3 was Packers wide receiver Travis Williams, whose Amsterdam Admirals (1-2) came up short against the Barcelona Dragons (2-1) 35-17.

Williams had a season-high three catches in the contest, the first on a 5-yarder in the third quarter, the latter two coming in the game's final drive for 10 and 25 yards, respectively.
