NFL Europe: World Bowl XI Recap


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.
