REDBLACKS 26 ALOUETTES 23
The play was setup after Montreal was called for pass interference, which allowed the Redblacks to setup from the one-yard line. They only needed one try to punch it in and improve their record to 4-2.
It was Ottawa's second win of the season over the Alouettes, who fell to 2-4. Should the teams be tied at the end of the regular season, the Redblacks will own the tiebreak based on the season series win.
On the first drive of the game, Burris shovelled a pass to Ernest Jackson who scored on a seven-yard touchdown to give Ottawa an early lead.
The drive covered 78 yards over 10 plays and gave the sell-out crowd the impression their team might have a good first quarter. The Redblacks had just one first-quarter touchdown all season heading into the game.
Despite a strong opening quarter, Ottawa trailed 12-7 at the half.
