NFL Europe Review Week 2

Take a look at how the Bears across the pond did in the second week of action.

Rhein Fire 22, Berlin Thunder 0
Stephen Larsen started at weak-side linebacker for the Fire, who moved to 2-0. He registered three tackles.

QB B.J. Symons didn't play for the Thunder after passing for two touchdowns in the season opener.

Frankfurt Galaxy 31, Hamburg Sea Devils 14
For the second straight week Qasim Mitchell was part of an offensive line that didn't allow a sack. With Mitchell starting at left guard, Frankfurt put up 454 yards of total offense in the victory over Hamburg.

Willie Amos started at cornerback and had five tackles for the Sea Devils, while reserve LB Justin Smith had two tackles and a special teams stop.

Amsterdam Admirals 20, Cologne Centurions 15
CB Abraham Elimimian started at cornerback for the Admirals. He finished with three tackles and two tipped passes in the win over Cologne.

WR Craig Bragg started for Amsterdam and finished with a 4-yard catch. LB Jeremy Cain had one tackle.

LB Josh Dean posted two tackles in a losing effort for the Centurions.

Week 3 will see Berlin travel to Hamburg, as the Sea Devils are the only team in NFL Europe without a victory. The Admirals will host the Galaxy, while the Fire try to stay undefeated with a trip to Cologne.
