The Crocodiles are eager to bounce back after a tough loss in Potsdam, while the Rebels are have are coming off of a big win at home. Both teams are eager to play well as the game will be broadcast on national television in Germany.

The Berlin Rebels were able to take care of business last week defeating the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes 28-14. Quarterback Darius Wade managed the game well finding receiver Jason Harris and moving the chains on the ground with his legs. Jean-Ariel Kouakou is intriguing young running back who flashed some potential last week. Look for the young German to get more touches today. In addition, do-it-all athlete Paul Morant should see some touches in the redzone as he’s the Rebels leading scorer.

Berlin’s defense struggled to contain Weston Carr, the Kiel receiver racked up seven catches and a touchdown on the day. Rebels safety Paul Morant will have to play well against a Cologne defense that looks to pass the ball over 40 times a game. The defensive aims to get pressure on Cologne quarterback Christian Strong despite lining up across from an experienced offensive line.

Cologne’s quarterback Christian Strong is poised to bounce back after a disappointing outing in Potsdam last week. The Canadian was statistically one of the country’s top passers before a poor performance against an athletic Royals defense. Strong looks to target receivers Aaron Jackson and Markell Caste. Cologne’s big plays give this offense has the potential to light up the score board against any defense in Europe.

Cologne’s defense expects to play well against Berlin. The main reason, linebacker Matrin Pinter. Pinter has been one of Germany’s top defenders in the early part of the season stuffing the stat sheet with tackles for loss and sacks. His play will be crucial in stopping dual threat passer Darius Wade and the speedy Berlin offense. On the back-end cornerback Emory Polley is poised to take away Berlin’s best receiver with tight man-to-man coverage.

Cologne has a chance at redemption today after losing badly to the Royals seven days go. Meanwhile, the resilient Rebels have a chance to win and build more momentum as they look to position themselves for a playoff run. Both teams should be ready to play television cameras and a plethora of media will be covering the GFL’s game of the week.
