Ross leads Cologne to season-opening win

Apr 14, 2007 - 8:27 PM HAMBURG, Germany (Ticker) -- Derrick Ross rushed for 119 yards and a touchdown to lead the Cologne Centurions to a 24-18 victory over the Hamburg Sea Devils in an NFL Europa season opener.

Allocated by the Kansas City Chiefs, Ross excelled in the role of feature back, carrying the ball 30 times and adding three receptions for 16 yards. He played in seven regular-season games for the Chiefs last season, primarily on special teams.

Ross rumbled around the right side of the offensive line and scored on a 16-yard run with 5:13 left in the second quarter to give Cologne (1-0) a 14-6 lead.

Quinton Porter and Erik Meyer split time at quarterback for the Centurions, who finished 4-6 under first-year coach Dave Duggan last season. Porter, who was allocated by the Houston Texans, completed 9-of-13 passes for 109 yards, including a four-yard touchdown to Bobby Blizzard with 13:48 left in the fourth quarter.

Meyer was 7-of-14 for 73 yards and scored on a six-yard run in the second quarter.

Hamburg's Casey Bramlett, who was allocated by the Washington Redskins, completed 14-of-21 passes for 161 yards, including a 55-yard touchdown to Scott McCready with 8:32 left in the fourth quarter.

But Rod Rutherford also played quarterback for Hamburg (0-1) and was intercepted twice.
