Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Jonathan Quinn threw for a NFL Europe League record-tying five touchdowns in a 41-10 blowout win against Amsterdam en route to his second Offensive Player of the Week honors.
Quinn, who leads the league with 2,009 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and a 91.0 passer rating, completed 20 of 29 passes for 289 yards with no interceptions. Four of his five touchdown passes came in the first half. He joins five other quarterbacks that have thrown five touchdowns in a game including Kurt Warner and Jon Kitna.
"We wanted to establish ourselves quickly against Amsterdam and get a lead," said Quinn of his Berlin Thunder squad that can earn a spot in the World Bowl this weekend with a win and a Rhein loss. "We did that and now we have to do it again next week at Amsterdam."
