Quinn Earns NFL Europe League Offensive Player of Week Honors

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Jonathan Quinn earned NFL Europe League Offensive Player of the Week honors after throwing four touchdown passes in the Berlin Thunder's 34-25 win over the Frankfurt Galaxy, which moved the Thunder into second place in the league at 3-2.

Quinn, who leads the league with 11 touchdowns and is second with 1,033 passing yards, finished with 12 completions in 18 attempts for 132 yards and no interceptions. He threw touchdown passes of 4, 16, 18 and 28 yards.

"My main goal in NFL Europe is to win," said Quinn, who is only the second Jaguars allocated player to earn NFLEL Player of the Week honors with Ricky Parker who earned defensive honors in 1998. "I think winning the award is due to a team effort and it shows how good our supporting cast is."
