This weekend in NFL Europe

The World Bowl berths are already locked up, but Packer allocations put their pride on the line as NFL Europe heads into the penultimate week of the 2004 regular season. One Sunday matchup finds a half-dozen Packers in action as the Cologne Centurions host the Amsterdam Admirals.<p>

Amsterdam (3-5), with CB Derek combs, LB Steve Josue and TE Tony Donald will try to sweep Cologne, which features defensive ends Cullen Jenkins and Eric Powell plus CB Erwin Swiney. The Admirals won the first meeting 17-10 in Week 7 on the strength of interceptions by Josue and Swiney plus Donald's five catches for 53 yards and a touchdown.

Other Week 9 games find World Bowl-bound Berlin Thunder (7-1) at Scottish Claymores (2-6) while the other WB entrant, Frankfurt Galaxy (6-2), travels to meet the Rhein Fire (3-5).

The Fire offense features Packer WR Shockmain Davis and RB Walter Williams, who has returned to the lineup after breaking his hand in Week 1. Recommended Stories
