JENNINGS RALLIES LIONS TO 41-18 ROUT OF ALOUETTES
Jennings connected with Emmanuel Arceneaux and Chris Rainey on TD tosses for the Lions (6-5), who were coming off a bye week and moved, at least temporarily, ahead of the Saskatchewan Roughriders into fourth in the CFL's powerhouse West Division.
Rainey also blocked a field goal that led to Anthony Gaitor's 73-yard touchdown return on the final play of the first half, while Jeremiah Johnson ran in two more scores.
Arceneaux and Bryan Burnham each had over 100 yards receiving for the Lions.
Darian Durant threw a TD to Ernest Jackson and scored another on the ground, while Boris Bede kicked a field goal for the Alouettes (3-8), who have now dropped four in a row and sit third in the East.
Jennings was benched in favour of Lulay after three ineffective performances _ all losses _ in his return from an injury to his throwing shoulder, but was pressed into service when the veteran pivot was tackled by Montreal's Branden Dozier on a six-yard run as he looked for a first down.
