TICATS 49 ESKIMOS 20

EDMONTON - Terrell Sinkfield reeled in a pair of touchdown passes as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats won their fifth straight game, with a dominating 49-20 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday.

The Ticats (6-2) moved into sole possession of first place in the CFL's East Division with the win.

The Eskimos (5-3) have lost two of their last three and saw a seven-game winning streak at home dating back to last season ended.

Edmonton had a rough start as quarterback Matt Nichols was picked off by Tiger-Cats defender Mike Daly on the opening drive and he took the ball back 51 yards. The interception led to a 22-yard touchdown pass from Zach Collaros to Sinkfield.

The Eskimos came right back with a 43-yard Grant Shaw field goal to make it 7-3.

Edmonton turned the ball over again late in the first half as Shakir Bell fumbled on his own 30, leading to another 10-yard TD pass to Sinkfield.

It just might be possible that Kent Austin knows more than Brendan Taman and Corey Chamblin combined.

Edmonton may be in the market for a defensive coordinator.

Simoni Lawrence is wreckless and hits to injure. The late hit on Nichols last night was just plain dirty and he should have been flagged for rough play (and not just the UR which was called) and disqualified from the game. No doubt League Office will review and he will be fined.
The League needs to protect its players, especially the QB's.
