STAMPEDERS 34 ESKIMOS 28 (2 OT)

EDMONTON - Bakari Grant reeled in a 23-yard touchdown pass in the second overtime as the Calgary Stampeders continued to roll through the season, coming away with a thrilling 34-28 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday.

Calgary (9-1-1) has won eight in a row and is unbeaten in 10 games.

Edmonton (5-6) has lost two straight, despite quarterback Mike Reilly going 35 for 45 for 432 yards and two touchdowns.

Stampeders QB Bo Levi Mitchell was 25-of-38 passing for 338 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception.

The Eskimos' first touch of the ball proved to be a pretty dramatic one as Reilly was able to thread the needle to Derel Walker. He shook off coverage and blazed to the end zone for a 104-yard passing touchdown, putting him at more than 1,000 receiving yards on the season.

Following a Mitchell interception by Deon Lacey, Reilly made it 14-0 Edmonton on a 26-yard TD pass to Adarius Bowman to start the second quarter.

To all you blaming the refs, all teams play with the same rules, to all you blaming injuries to the O-line Calgary has had they same injuries they finished this game with D-linemen playing O-line. It's Jones that is the difference he is why we keep losing!!

Good game played by 2 teams with exceptional talent, especially at the QB position. Unlike the local team that is sadly lacking at all positions.
