Texans in NFL Europe

Todd Sievers had another big weekend across the pond.

The Texans' allocated kicker nailed a 51-yard field goal with four seconds remaining in overtime to give Amsterdam a 21-17 win over previously undefeated Frankfurt.

No, that's not a misprint. Field goals from that distance are worth four points in NFL Europe. Sievers' kick capped a 43-yard drive that took just 24 seconds. His performance earned him NFLEL Special Teams Player of the Week honors for the second consecutive week. Sievers provided the lone scoring in a 3-0 win over Scotland the previous Sunday.

"We have a kicker in Todd who can hit the long field goals and that proved to be the case against the Galaxy," Amsterdam head coach Bart Andrus said.

Fellow Admiral Chris Taylor caught four passes for 56 yards. Wide receiver Jermaine Lewis caught two passes for 23 yards for the Galaxy, which had a potential game-winning field goal attempt blocked with 1:02 left in regulation.

In other league action, Cologne picked up its first win by defeating Scotland 17-3. Wide receiver Albert Johnson caught one pass for five yards and punter Steve Cheek downed two of his five punts inside the 20, averaging 36.6 yards.

Berlin's 14-10 win at Rhein ensured the Thunder would be the lone unbeaten team after four weeks. Fullback Ed Stansbury caught a four-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Rohan Davey (Patriots) to get Berlin on the board early in the fourth quarter. The Thunder scored the go-ahead touchdown with 5:54 left.

Stansbury had a team-leading four receptions for 34 yards. Linebacker Kevin DeRonde had three tackles, including his first sack, good for 14 yards.
