NFL Europe Week 8 Recap


Needing a win to keep their World Bowl hopes alive, the Scottish Claymores got a three-touchdown performance from Green Bay Packers quarterback Craig Nall en route to a 31-20 triumph over the Amsterdam Admirals in Week 8 of NFL Europe.

Nall completed 70 percent of his passes (22-of-31) for 313 yards, with no interceptions, as the Claymores won their second straight game to improve to 4-4, one game back of a trio of teams knotted at 5-3. Scotland still has a chance to finish among the top two in the league standings and advance to World Bowl XI, but must win its next two games.

Against Amsterdam, the Claymores jumped out to an early lead when Nall completed a 34-yard touchdown pass to Mike Malan (New England Patriots), capping off an 89-yard scoring drive in the first quarter.

Nall and Malan hooked up again in the second quarter on a 3-yard route that made it 21-3.

Nall's final touchdown pass occurred with 1:49 remaining in the game, when he hit Rodney Trafford (New England Patriots) on a 5-yard scoring pass.

Nall's second three-touchdown performance of the season, it marked the fourth time that he's gone without an interception.

For the Claymores' defense, Packers safety Bobby Jackson tallied a pair of passes defensed to go with three tackles, while linebackers Isaac Keys and Jermaine Petty combined for two tackles.

Wide receiver Travis Williams made one reception for 11 yards for Amsterdam.

Elsewhere over the weekend the Frankfurt Galaxy (5-3) closed in on its World Bowl dreams with a convincing 47-13 win over the Barcelona Dragons (5-3).

Packers defensive back Jeremy Unertl made three tackles, while punter Tim Morgan boomed punts of 52 and 48 yards.

The Galaxy can clinch a World Bowl appearance with a Week 9 win against the Rhein Fire.

The Fire (5-3) defeated the Berlin Thunder (2-6), 28-21, over the weekend.
