Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Jonathan Quinn completed 12 of 19 passes for 248 yards and four touchdown in a 34-28 win over Amsterdam that earned the Berlin Thunder a spot in Saturday's World Bowl and earned Quinn his second consecutive NFL Europe Offensive Player of the Week honors and third this year.
Quinn, who finished the NFL Europe season leading the league with 2,257 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and a 95.3 passer rating, completed four touchdown passes to four different receivers and helped lead the Thunder to a 6-4 second-place record, that will put them against first-place Barcelona in the World Bowl.
"We're going to enjoy World Bowl week and look forward to the challenge of playing the Dragons again. We feel very fortunate to have one more game to play," said Berlin head coach Peter Vaas. "When we started out in March, we wanted to be in the World Bowl, and now we're one of two teams in that game. That's because our guys worked their tails off, and I'm really happy about that."
The 8-2 Dragons swept the series between the two teams, winning Game One in Berlin 21-14 and Game Two in Barcelona 55-35. The World Bowl will be aired on FOX at 6 p.m. Saturday in the Amsterdam Arena.
