What Did You Miss Monday?

--Willie Jefferson's 49 yard interception return with less than two minutes to play was the difference as the Riders made it seven wins in their last eight games with a 19-12 win over Edmonton.  The Riders are now 10-5 on the season and in Winnipeg on Saturday. 

--The Calgary Stampeders had a tough afternoon in Montreal, but they still got a win.  Terry Williams' first TD of the year was the only touchdown on the day as Calgary beat Montreal 12-6 to eliminate the Alouettes from the playoffs and give Hamilton a home playoff game

--What a night for Drew Brees.  The New Orleans quarterback became the NFL's all-time passing yards leader as the Saints beat Washington 43-19.  Brees has now thrown for 72, 103 yards

--The LA Dodgers have moved into the National League Championship Series against Milwaukee.  The Dodgers eliminated Atlanta with a 6-2 win in Game 4 of their best of 5 NLDS.   Houston eliminated Cleveland and moved into the ALCS with an 11-3 victory over the Indians.  Boston's Brock Holt became the first player to hit for the cycle in a post-season game as the Red Sox clubbed the Yankees 16-1 to take a 2-1 lead in that best of 5. 

--Roberto Luongo will be out 2-4 weeks for the Florida Panthers with a Grade 1 MCL strain in his right knee. The 39-year-old goalie was placed on injured reserve Sunday. Luongo left the Panthers' season-opening 2-1 shootout loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday at 12:21 of the second period after he was injured during a scramble in front of Florida's net.
