Drew Henson's Fire finally loses

New, comments

The 1972 Dolphins can pop the champagne. Their perfect record is safe as the Rhein Fire lost to the Amsterdam Admirals 35-31. I haven't seen the game yet, it's on at 4 PM EST on the NFL Network, so I'll Tivo it and watch it later. But the stats say Henson had a pretty good game but made some turnovers that cost the Fire. He went 17/28 for 187 yards and 2 TD's. On the downside, he had an INT on the Fire's final drive, killing the hope of a last minute win, and he fumbled deep in his own territory after a sack early in the game. The Admirals recovered and quickly scored a TD.

Henson was working without his two top receivers but managed to keep his team in the game until the end. So that's says something for the kid. The Fire is now 4-1.
