Week 7 NFL Europe Action

Saints-allocated receivers for the Rhein Fire each had one catch against the Berlin Thunder on Saturday. Jimmy Robinson caught one pass for 20 yards and Onome Ojo caught one for 10 yards.

No Fire receiver caught more than two passes as the Fire, QB Tee Martin, and RB Jamal Robertson focused on the running game. Martin completed only 10 passes on the day.

Fire P Dirk Johnson, another Saints allocation to Europe, had three punts for an average of 41.7 yards, including one downed inside the 20 yard line.

On the other side of the field, Berlin Thunder starting free safety Tim Carter, allocated by the Saints, had one tackle, his second interception of the season, and a pass defense. Carter's interception late in the first half ended a Fire scoring drive.

Thunder starting strongside linebacker Jonathan Jackson, from the Saints, collected five tackles on defense, three solo, and another tackle on special teams.

Saints-allocated G Jeff Chase saw some action as a guard with the Frankfurt Galaxy in their loss to the FC Barcelona Dragons.
