STAMPEDERS OUTLAST ESKIMOS 25-22
It also didn't hurt that Edmonton kicker Chris Milo missed a 47-yarder as time expired which would've tied the game.
The Stampeders remain in first place in the CFL with a record of 9-1-1.
Calgary head coach Dave Dickenson said the game felt like a slug-fest.
"There was nothing pretty about it,'' he said. "There was a lot of fight from both teams, maybe even a little over the edge a bit at times. Neither team gave up and kept on fighting. We'll take the two points and win No. 9 is big for us.
"To sweep this series and take the season series against Edmonton is big.''
Edmonton has dropped four straight games to fall to 7-4.
"I'll just say this, losing sucks,'' said Eskimos head coach Jason Maas. "There's no other way to put it, losing sucks whether you lose by one, 40, or two. That's all I can say about it.''
Both teams are back at it next Saturday, when the Eskimos travel to Toronto and the Stampeders play host to the B.C. Lions.
Notes: The game marked the return of Eskimos all-star receiver Walker, who rejoined the team this week after he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Walker was CFL rookie of the year in 2015.
