LIVESTREAM: Germany – Allgäu Comets @Marburg Mercenaries Aug. 13, 4p CEST (10a EDT)

The Marburg Mercenaries are looking to improve their record to 8-3 when they face the  3-7 Allgäu Comets Sunday at Georg-Gassman Stadium in Marburg in German Football League action.

The Mercenaries sit third in the GFL South but have lost two of their last three games while Allgäu are coming off two straights wins. This is the first game in a back-to-back series between the two.

Nevertheless, the Mercenaries have to be considered favorites entering this one. They have only lost one game this season at home while the Comets have lost four of five of their away games.

This could be a game won in the air. Marburg quarterback Chad Jeffries is the fourth leading passer in Germany after only playing six games. He has thrown for 1,516 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging 253 yards per game. Allgäu has one of the most porous pass defenses in the league giving up an average of 242 yards per game.

The Comets will have to keep an eye on Marburg receiver Robert Johnson who leads the team with 635 yards in receptions. Versatile running back Andreus Lindley leads the Mercenaries in rushing with 493 yards while also catching 25 passes for 440 yards.

However, Comets quarterback Cedric Townsend’s offensive numbers are impressive. He has thrown for 1,657 and 19 touchdowns in eight games and rushed for 327 and four touchdowns. In other words, he has accounted for 23 of Allgäu’s 31.touchdowns this year.
