Packers safety Jeremy Unertl will have plenty to talk about when he returns to Green Bay for training camp.
Unertl, and Packers teammate Tim Morgan, helped the Frankfurt Galaxy (7-4) to their third World Bowl Championship Saturday at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland. The Galaxy became the first NFL Europe franchise to win three World Bowls, defeating the Rhein Fire, 35-16.
Finishing the regular season tied for the league lead in interceptions, Unertl again showed the world his ability to make big plays.
Leading 25-9 in the third quarter, Unertl turned away Rhein running back Frank Moreau at the 1-yard line on second-and-goal. That play revived the struggling defense, which came up with the goal-line stand and returned the ball back to the offense.
The Galaxy then marched 99 yards in 10 plays for a touchdown, going ahead 32-9 and ultimately putting the game out of reach.
In World Bowl XI, Unertl tallied 6 tackles, to go with his regular season of 29, while Morgan had one punt for 38 yards.
