    Recap: Edmonton 27, Calgary 16

    The Edmonton Eskimos earn their first victory in their last 12 meetings with provincial rivals at Commenwealth Stadium in the return of Mike Reilly.

    Stampeders 16, Eskimos 27
    Mike Reilly started for the first time since June 27th and threw three touchdowns to help the Eskimos snap a 12-game losing streak against the Stampeders.

    Mike Reilly showed Eskimos fans what they have been missing in his absence as he led Edmonton to a huge victory over their rivals. Rod Smith and Matt Dunigan have more.

    Curse Reversed: Esks snap streak vs. Stamps

    The Calgary Stampeders’ 12 game winning streak over their fellow Albertans came to an end on Saturday night as the Edmonton Eskimos emerged victorious with a 27-16 win at Commonwealth Stadium.
    Mike Reilly was superb in his first start since suffering a knee injury in Week 1, finishing the game 22-for-40 and 352 with three touchdown passes and no interceptions. Reilly was reunited with his favourite target, Adarius Bowman, who caught six passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns.
    Kenny Stafford was also dangerous on the field, making two catches over 40 yards and notching 109 yards and a touchdown on only three passes.

    The Calgary Stampeders fell victim to the Edmonton Eskimos 27-16 on Saturday night from Commonwealth Stadium in the annual Labour Day rematch. Their first regular-season loss to their provincial rivals in 13 games, the Red and White fell to 8-3 on the year.
    Bo Levi Mitchell was previously undefeated against the Esks while Mike Reilly, making his first start since Week 1, beat the Stamps after four losses in his first four tries.
    “Obviously we didn’t play well enough to win the football game," said Stamps head coach and general manager John Hufnagel. "They made more plays than we did and their offence made some big plays. Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay with them and match it with our offence. I thought it was a close game for the most part but it got out of hand late in the fourth quarter.”

    Reilly, Esks finally beat first-place Stamps
    The Calgary curse that's haunted Edmonton has finally been lifted.
    Mike Reilly threw three touchdown passes in his first full start of the season, including a pair to Adarius Bowman, as the Eskimos finally managed to get past their southern rivals, defeating the Stampeders 27-16 on a rain-soaked Saturday night.
    With the win the Eskimos (7-4) snapped a 12-game losing skid extending back four seasons against the Stampeders.

    Wins don't mean a thing to QBs of Stampeders, Eskimos
    Bo Levi Mitchell doesn’t think much of the stat.
    Apparently, neither does Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly.
    The Calgary Stampeders pivot took a 23-4 record into Saturday’s tilt at Commonwealth Stadium, the best start to a career by any quarterback in CFL history.

    Stampeders drop rainy day game to Eskimos
    The bombs were falling in Commonwealth Stadium as steadily as the heavy rain and it was the Calgary Stampeders who were the casualties.
    Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly made his first start since Week One a memorable one for the Eskimos and their fans, hitting Kenny Stafford for a couple of 40-yard-plus throws and Adarius Bowman for a 50-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, sending the Esks on their way to a 27-16 CFL victory on a soggy Saturday night.
    It was Edmonton’s first win over Calgary after a dozen straight losses and it avenged the Eskimos’ 16-7 loss on Labour Day, to the delight of 38,906 waterlogged fans.

    Another game where the D gave up the long ball touchdown.
    The offense sputter and stalled all game long, due to the fact they have no offensive line and for the second game in a row DD was out schemed by the Esks D.
    The team will really miss Brown.
    The Esks played with more intensity and edge in last nights game and were deserving of the win. Come Oct 10, the game between the two will be even more intense.
