ESKIMOS ADVANCE TO WEST DIVISION FINAL
It was Edmonton's sixth straight victory and earned them a trip to Calgary for next Sunday's division final against the Stampeders (13-4-1).
Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly completed 23-of-33 pass attempts for 334 yards with three TDs and no interceptions.
Bombers quarterback Matt Nichols, who didn't appear to be hampered by a calf injury, was 35 of 48 for 371 yards with three TDs and no picks in front of an announced attendance of 27,244 at Investors Group Field.
The loss bumped up Winnipeg's Grey Cup drought to 27 seasons.
Edmonton played in last year's East Division final as the crossover team, losing to the eventual Grey Cup-champion Ottawa Redblacks.
