    Game in 90 Seconds


    Game 4 - Cgy at Edm - July 24, 2014


    My very first CFL game ever was definitely special, but this one was great too.
    We just wanted to pressure them early. On that first major, I got through the line clean and I just kind of had a good bounce into my hands after blocking the punt and kept running with it and I was fortunate enough to get the touchdown.

    Recap: Calgary 26, Edmonton 22
    Round 1 of the Battle of Alberta did not disappoint, as Calgary and Edmonton traded blows for 60 minutes. But it was the Stampeders who held on for a 26-22 victory and first place in the west.


    The Calgary Stampeders moved to 4-0 on the season with a 26-22 win in Edmonton against their provincial rivals due in large part to a stellar performance on special teams and 20 points scored off of Eskimo turnovers.
    “We didn't score touchdowns all the time but we scored points," says head coach and general manager John Hufnagel. "This was the type of game where you have to do things to try to help the team win football games by making head coaching decisions. I went for third-and-one and I got stopped, so you just have to take those chances and hopefully they will execute.”

    Advantage Calgary: Stamps remain perfect in win over Esks
    And then there was one. The Calgary Stampeders remain the only unbeaten team in the CFL after taking down the Edmonton Eskimos 26-22 in round one of the Battle of Alberta Thursday night in front of 40,066 at Commonwealth Stadium.
    The rivalry between the two teams has tapered off slightly in recent years, but there was no doubting what was the most anticipated game on the schedule in Week 5. Both teams entered unbeaten and on top of the West Division, with the winner taking sole position of first place in the CFL.

    It's more of a neat stat than a record.
    But it's a pretty neat one.
    Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell went into Thursday night's tilt with an opportunity to equal the best start to a career in CFL history.

    With more eyes on the 50/50 draw than the scoreboard at Commonwealth Stadium Thursday, the Edmonton Eskimos suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of their provincial rivals.
    A 26-22 Calgary Stampeders win bumped them to the top of the West Division with a 4-0 record, while the Eskimos head into their bye week following a 4-1 start.

    Stampeders down Eskimos to stay undefeated
    Bo Levi Mitchell isn't interested in tying or surpassing any personal records. He just wants his team to win.

    Riverboat gambler Jones loses key gambles for Eskimos
    Inside the seemingly small “c” conservative exterior that Edmonton Eskimos head coach Chris Jones presents to the world beats the heart of a riverboat gambler.
    Don’t be fooled by the Tennessee drawl, the 1950s haircut, the name-rank-and-serial-number approach to what we’ll laughingly call discourse.
    Jones, the defensive specialist, is secretly from Mississippi. He never met a gadget play he doesn’t like, he never saw a situation too fraught with danger to take a chance. He wants to roll the dice. Focus football leads Eskimos/10060551/story.html
