    McDaniel: "It was good to get a big win"
    Stampeders Marquay McDaniel discusses teammate Eric Rogers strong play and all the MOP talk he's getting and talks about how good it was to get a big win on the road.

    Horse Power: Stampeders too much for Argonauts

    Bo Levi Mitchell was solid, completing 21 of his 28 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns, as the Calgary Stampeders got back in the win column with a 27-13 win over the Toronto Argonauts at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton.
    The Stampeders also received strong offensive efforts from receivers Eric Rogers, who continued to make noise in the MOP race thanks to a four-catch, 91-yard effort, as well as Marquay McDaniel, who reeled in seven passes for 74 yards and a touchdown.
    Argos pivot Trevor Harris finished the afternoon 26 of 43, for 264 yards, one TD and one interception.

    The Calgary Stampeders claimed win No. 12 of the year on Saturday afternoon as they beat the Toronto Argonauts at Hamilton’s Tim Hortons Field.
    The 27-13 triumph earned Stamps head coach and general manager John Hufnagel his 100th victory in just his 142nd game since first patrolling the Stamps sideline back in 2008.
    "It was very nice for the players to think about it and award me the (game) ball," said Hufnagel. "A lot of people are responsible for this besides myself, but it was a good win tonight, a win that we desperately needed. Now the players can go on a week’s break and hopefully keep in the gym a little bit, but heal up a little bit also."

    Calgary Stampeders Snapshots: Brandon Smith picks off pair of passes

    Inside the Calgary Stampeders locker-room, the Twitter-less Brandon Smith is known as No Twitty Smitty.
    His play did all the talking Saturday in a 27-15 win over the Toronto Argonauts at Tim Hortons Field, with Smith registering his third-career two-interception game and first since the 2010 season.
    The shutdown defensive back kick-started the Stamps on their way to their 12th win of the season by picking off Argonauts quarterback Trevor Harris on the first Double Blue possession of the game.

    Calgary Stampeders 27, Toronto Argonauts 15: 5 Key Plays

    Brandon Smith picks off Trevor Harris
    The Toronto Argonauts are the team known for their quick starts, but Smith helped the Calgary Stampeders turn the tables on that narrative Saturday afternoon, intercepting Harris on the Boatmen's first possession of the game and scampering all the way down to the five-yard line. While Smith was lamenting coming up five yards short of a pick-six, QB Bo Levi Mitchell finished the job on the very next play by finding Marquay McDaniel for the touchdown and an early lead.

    Stampeders get back on the winning track, dropping the Argos 27-15 in Hamilton
    In typical fashion, John Hufnagel downplayed the personal achievement.
    But there is no discounting 100 wins in the Canadian Football League and, thanks to a bruising defence and a resurgent offence, the Calgary Stampeders’ head coach was rewarded with just that.
    Through the circus-like atmosphere of this game, played in front of a glorified high school-sized crowd, the Stamps focused on the task at hand and got the desired result – a 27-15 victory over the Toronto Argonauts at Tim Hortons Field Saturday afternoon.

    Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell throws two TDs to help top Toronto Argonauts
    John Hufnagel and the Calgary Stampeders added to the Toronto Argonauts’ misery Saturday afternoon.
    Bo Levi Mitchell threw two touchdown passes as Calgary beat Toronto 27-15 at Tim Hortons field, earning Hufnagel his 100th career regular-season CFL coaching victory. It marked the third home game Toronto has been forced to play away from Rogers Centre with another looming as the Argos will host the Montreal Alouettes here Friday night.
    Hufnagel, who’ll hand over head-coaching duties to offensive co-ordinator Dave Dickenson at season’s end, improved to 100-41-1. Calgary (12-4) moved atop the West Division ahead of Edmonton (11-4), which hosted the B.C. Lions (5-9) later Saturday.
