Texans in NFL Europe

Two Texans caught touchdown passes across the pond this weekend as NFL Europe wrapped up its fifth week of action.

Admirals wide receiver Chris Taylor continued his strong spring, hauling in five passes for 60 yards and one touchdown. But the Admirals fell to Berlin 33-29. Taylor's 21-yard scoring reception gave Amsterdam a 21-19 lead early in the fourth quarter before Thunder quarterback Rohan Davey (Patriots) rallied his club with two touchdown passes.

Taylor now has 19 receptions for 254 yards and two scores. That ties him for fourth in the league with teammate Chris Horn (Chiefs), 12 behind Scotland's Scott McCready.

Amsterdam kicker Todd Sievers, who has won the past two NFL Europe Special Teams Player of the Week awards, did not play.

Frankfurt wide receiver Jermaine Lewis caught just one pass, but he made it count, hauling in a 22-yard touchdown pass in the Galaxy's 24-17 win over Cologne.

"I have a lot more I can offer to the team, but I haven't gotten the opportunity yet," Lewis said. "So I am just being patient and when I get in there I am going to do what I can to help the team."

Lewis was excited to see that the Texans drafted his former Western Michigan teammate Jason Babin in the first round.

"Jason is a hard worker," Lewis said. "He'll do whatever the Texans ask him to do. He plays really hard. He was my roommate for one year and he was a cool dude. My senior year, he was double and triple-teamed every game and he still made All-American honors. That's what kind of player he is."

In Cologne's loss to the Galaxy, Centurions wide receiver Albert Johnson caught two passes for 21 yards, while punter Steve Cheek averaged 43 yards on four punts, landing two inside the 20.

In other NFL Europe action, Scotland rallied for its first win of the season, defeating Rhein 13-12. Berlin remains in first place at 5-0, one game clear of Frankfurt.
