Week 3 NFL Europe Review

The Bears allocated two quarterbacks to NFL Europe. While everyone expected Kurt Kittner to be the one that made an impact, Ryan Dinwiddie is beginning to turn some heads.

Ryan Dinwiddie may move up the Hamburg depth chart following his two-touchdown performance against the Rhein Fire.

On his way to a 140.9 QB rating, Dinwiddie completed 8-of-11 passes for 102 yards and scoring strikes from 5 and 22 yards respectively.

Teammate Zack Abron rushed for 14 yards on 35 carries and a touchdown.

The Sea Devils took a 31-0 lead behind Dinwiddie and Abron, but had to hold on in the second half as the Fire ripped off 27 unanswered points.

Placekicker Nicholas Setta connected on a 35-yard field goal as part of the Fire run. A.J. Ricker started at center, while Bryan Anderson appeared as a substitute guard.

In the Cologne Centurions 23-14 win over the Frankfurt Galaxy, Jamin Elliott caught two passes for 28 yards. Greg White started at right end and produced two tackles.

Cliff Washburn appeared for Frankfurt as a substitute at tackle.

Amsterdam defeated Berlin 31-27 without a strong performance from backup quarterback Kurt Kittner, who completed 6-of-10 passes for 65 yards and he threw his second interception in as many weeks.

Derrick Ballard continues to be a productive starting linebacker for the Admirals. He tallied three stops and a half sack.
