    Eskimos defence comes up huge
    The Eskimos' defence has been lauded all year long and they showed why as they suffocated the Stampeders. Rod Smith and Jock Climie explain how despite being held in check, Bo Levi Mitchell still had a chance to get Calgary a win.

    ONTKO: WE WILL BOUNCE BACK

    My first CFL game was awesome and a great experience. The game is fast. I knew the Canadian game was fast coming in, but you really appreciate the speed when you’re out there.
    Special teams were on the field a lot tonight and I’m sore. We definitely did some running out there tonight. There will definitely be a lot for me to work on this week, but it’s a good foundation to start to work on. Like Huff says, every week we work on becoming an even better football team.

    Western Showdown: Esks top Stamps for fifth straight win

    Cauchy Muamba picked off Bo Levi Mitchell in the final minutes of the game to secure a 15-11 victory for the Edmonton Eskimos over the Calgary Stampeders.
    The win, Edmonton's fifth straight, moves the Esks into a tie with the Stamps atop the West Division and secures a playoff game at Commonwealth Stadium. It was also the Eskimos' first victory at McMahon Stadium since 2011 and the Stamps' first loss at home this season.
    The final frame opened with a single being added to the board for the Eskimos after they were forced to punt.

    STAMPS SUFFER FIRST HOME LOSS
    Calgary’s seven-game winning streak at home was snapped on Saturday as the Stampeders dropped a 15-11 decision to the Edmonton Eskimos at McMahon Stadium.
    Both teams are now 11-4 but the Eskimos hold first place by virtue of having won the season series two games to one against the Stamps.
    The defences dominated Saturday’s contest, particularly in the second half as each team managed only a punt single.

    First-place destiny out of Stamps' control
    The chance was there. To grind their heels into the larynx and crush the windpipe. Cut off the blood flow to the brain. Snatch the last fleeting breath out of deflating lungs.
    To all but finish the job.
    To in essence book Nov. 22nd and the West final for home soil, for the fading but familiar confines of McMahon Stadium. To avoid the potential banana peel of a tricky semi-final encounter with some uppity, nothing-to-lose giant killer.
    To considerably simplify their lives.

    Stamps drop key contest to rival Eskimos
    The offence, by the admission of its parts, let the other side down.
    “Our defence has been playing good all year,” sighed Calgary Stampeders’ receiver Marquay McDaniel. “We have to keep drives alive. We have to get points for those guys. I feel we owe those guys one.”
    Defence was the name of the game on Saturday at McMahon Stadium, yet the Edmonton Eskimos managed to just squeak out the necessary points, holding off the Stampeders for a 15-11 victory. The ramifications are huge: not only are these two squads tied for first in the CFL West Division at 11-4, but the Eskimos now hold the tiebreaker by winning the season series two games to one.

    Stamps lose control of West Division as Eskimos win at McMahon
    If the Calgary Stampeders host the West final for a third straight season, it will be because someone else gave them some help down the stretch.
    The Edmonton Eskimos took control of the West Division by coming into McMahon Stadium Saturday evening and battling for a 15-11 victory that was a defensive slugfest.
    The Stampeders offence struggled throughout the first half, got one touchdown drive to end the second quarter, but then were completely shut down over the final 30 minutes.

    Eskimos beat Stampeders to tighten top of CFL West Division
    Unlike a year ago, there's a full-on race for first place in the CFL's West Division.
    The Edmonton Eskimos pulled even with the Calgary Stampeders at 11-4 atop the division with a 15-11 win over their provincial rival Saturday at McMahon Stadium.
    Both teams assured a playoff at home with three games remaining in the regular season, it's now a matter of which Alberta city gets the division final Nov. 22 and which gets the division semifinal Nov. 15.

    To think that one game like this can make such a big difference for first place in spite of winning 11 games so far.

    Now we wait and see if the jays bump saturday's game to McMahon.

    :bang: Stamps had the opportunity to win a pivotal game and blew it. I guess the team wasn't listening to Hufnagel after the BC game. While I'm glad the team has another day or a few games to right the ship and by no means their season is over, however, after last night's game I'm less optimistic. C'mon Stamps pick it up.

    Getting into the realm of too many catastrophic injuries to overcome; I'm now starting to get worried that the season is a write off; never got any rhythm from way too many key injuries.
    Hope I'm wrong!
