--Zach Collaros threw for 352 yards as the Riders walked into Calgary and defeated the Stampeders 29-24. The Riders are now 11-6 on the season and can finish first in the West with a victory over BC next weekend and two Calgary losses to end the year.
--James Franklin's record-tying, one-yard touchdown run with 56 seconds remaining rallied the Toronto Argonauts to a 26-22 win over Montreal. It came after Tevaughn Campbell returned Franklin's interception for a T-D earlier in the frame. Franklin redeemed himself with his 14th rushing T-D this season, tying Doug Flutie's league record for most rushing scores by a quarterback.
--3rd period goals by Ryan Peckford and Tristin Langan lifted the Moose Jaw Warriors to a 3-2 win over the Pats at the Brandt Centre. The Pats are back in action Sunday afternoon against Everett.
--Mark Stone played hero for the Ottawa Senators. The 26-year-old winger scored his second goal of the game in overtime as the Senators overcame a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Montreal Canadiens 4-3. Stone's one-timer from the face-off circle beat Carey Price. Stone also had a goal and an assist in regulation.
--Yasiel Puig's three-run homer lifted the LA Dodgers to a 5-1 win over Milwaukee in Game 7 of the NLCS. The Dodgers will be in Boston Tuesday for Game 1 of the World Series.
The Roughriders went to Calgary with a very good game plan that methodically destroyed the Stampeders on their own home turf making it look too easy in the process. Next! Question, where was Bo Levi Mitchell, did he play? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ouch!

Saw your tweet last night about where are all those people who didn't think the Riders would win again after the Winnipeg game. How true!!

The Pats can't even beat Moose Jaw!!
Rider Game, this crow sure is chewy this morning.
Beating Calgary makes everything so much better! I think we all saw how well they take it when they are getting challenged or beaten. Micah Johnson can stuff it. He had a couple of plays, but when you are held in check by Josiah St. John, you might to re-focus a little.
Put me down as one of those who didn't think the Riders would win again this season. That was the best game of the year. It comes after the worst. Maybe last week was a good thing as it woke their collective asses up.
Time to finish strong and beat the Lions.
Cameron Marshall might be the best running back we have. Why he has been inactive for so long has confused me. Love what Thigpen brings to the table, but Marshall is a more complete back.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have arrived under the leadership of Jones, Murphy, Reynolds. Calgary now a ordinary team after many years of dominating the CFL West Division, mind you the Stamps still probably win the WD crown for this year, no matter. Saskatchewan Roughriders now the power house of the league. Next year, more fine tuning, a tweek here, a tweek there by Chris Jones and company and the franchise set reign as a dynasty.
