Eskimos QB James Franklin shone in a solid half of work and the QB platoon of the Blue Bombers combined for four touchdowns, but it was two backups who were the story of Thursday’s pre-season matchup. QB Zach Kline led the Eskimos on a furious comeback and RB Marion Grice scored two touchdowns and a two-point conversion in the fourth as the Bombers and Eskimos tied 38-38 in their final action of the 2017 pre-season. It was the tale of two lineups on Thursday; while the Eskimos opted to rest ...

VANCOUVER – A wild final three minutes came down to who had the ball last as the Edmonton Eskimos opened the regular season with a 30-27 win over the BC Lions Saturday night in Vancouver. After the Eskimos surrendered a two-score lead in the fourth, Mike Reilly had the game in his hands with under 40 seconds remaining and delivered a strike to a wide open Brandon Zylstra in behind coverage for a 76-yard gain to set up a chip-shot Sean Whyte field goal with zeros on the clock to take the ...

A handful of big plays in the second half helped the Edmonton Eskimos escape from their CFL home opener with a 23-19 come-from-behind victory Friday over the Montreal Alouettes. Backup running back Travon Van and star receiver Adarius Bowman scored touchdowns, outside linebacker Kenny Ladler made a key interception early in the fourth quarter and Sean Whyte booted a career-high 55-yard field goal as the Eskimos overcame a disappointing first half in front of 31, 828 spectators on The Brick ...

The Eskimos may have set a North American record with a 50/50 jackpot, presented by belairdirect, of $435,919.50 on Friday night thanks to a season-high turnout of 36,260 fans at Commonwealth Stadium. But the only record the team really cared about was 3-0. Backed by another strong defensive effort, offensive production when needed and a couple of big plays on special teams, the Eskimos emerged as the CFL’s only undefeated team from a hard-fought 23-21 victory over the defending Grey Cup ...

Close only counts in horse shoes, hand grenades and, apparently, Eskimos football games. The Eskimos won their fourth consecutive nail-biter on Thursday, this time rallying from a 28-23 deficit when wide receiver Vidal Hazelton scored a 15-yard pass-and-run touchdown with 23 seconds left in the game at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton. Hazelton’s second TD of the season gave the Eskimos their only lead of the game, but it was the only lead they needed to preserve their perfect 4-0 record with ...

The Eskimos celebrated equipment manager Dwayne Mandrusiak’s 1,000th CFL game with a few achievements of their own Friday night. They posted their fifth consecutive win to start a season for the first time since 2011 as quarterback Mike Reilly threw for 412 yards and two touchdowns to knock off the B.C. Lions 37-26 at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. “To be able to do it for Dwayne was pretty awesome,” said 32-year-old fullback Calvin McCarty, who has been with the team for 11 ...

Make that six straight wins in the Edmonton Eskimos. The Green and Gold remained perfect on the season by taking down the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-28 at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium in the second match of a Friday night double header. The game came down to a final pass attempt by Zach Collaros with zeros left on the clock. A roughing the passer call gave the Ticats one last chance at capturing their first win of the season, setting the Tabbies up just outside of the red zone. The ...

It was the same old story line for the undefeated Eskimos on Thursday at Ottawa. They made big plays on offence and defence when they needed them the most, lost two more key players to injuries and racked up another win to open a season 7-0 for the first time since 1961. The Eskimos defeated the reigning Grey Cup champion RedBlacks 27-20 at TD Place Stadium to become only the 13th team in CFL history to win each of their first seven games. The only Edmonton team to ever win more games off ...

An imperfect game at Winnipeg on Thursday night ended the Eskimos run at perfection. The Eskimos, who were trying to become only the fifth CFL team to start a season with eight straight wins since 1961, fell behind 17-3 by halftime, rallied in the third quarter, but couldn’t do enough in the fourth and lost 33-26 to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Former Edmonton quarterback Matt Nichols completed 32 of 40 passes for 390 yards and a touchdown while also scoring a one-yard TD as the Bombers ...

For most of the CFL season, the Eskimos could do no wrong. Now they’re having trouble doing enough things right. Five turnovers and 13 penalties for 128 yards proved to be especially costly on Friday when the Saskatchewan Roughriders shocked the Eskimos 54-31 in front of a CFL season-high 41,738 spectators at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. “This was embarrassing tonight in front of our home crowd,” said linebacker Kenny Ladler. “We let a lot of fans down.

It may be a short week to get ready for the rematch with the Calgary Stampeders, but Eskimos head coach Jason Maas said it’s plenty of time for his CFL football club to make some much-needed improvements. “I told our guys in the locker room: ‘Their best has to get better and their weaknesses have to improve if we’re going to win on Saturday,’ ” Maas said on the 630 CHED post-game show after the Eskimos lost 39-18 in Monday’s Labour Day Classic at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium.

But when a team has been struggling for a while, sometimes there are silver linings in the dark clouds that can prove to be valuable. “I have a lot of pride and hope in what I saw tonight,” Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly said after Saturday’s 25-22 loss to the Calgary Stampeders in front of 34,312 spectators at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. “Guys are definitely on edge, but it’s ...

The Eskimos season keeps getting Wilder and Wilder. After starting out with seven straight wins despite an incredible run of injuries, the Esks have now lost five consecutive games for the first time since 2013. Rookie running back James Wilder Jr. broke a 14-14 tie with a 76-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter to give the Toronto Argonauts a lead they would never surrender Saturday afternoon en route to a 34-26 victory over the Eskimos at BMO Field in Toronto.

A sixth straight loss – including three in a row at home for the first time since 2013 – has the Eskimos reeling, but not defeated. Once upon a time, they were sitting pretty at the top of the CFL standings with a perfect 7-0 record. Now the Eskimos are in a scramble for their West Division playoff life after falling into a tie for third place with the Saskatchewan Roughriders at 7-6 while the B.C.

The Eskimos snapped their longest losing streak since 2013 by overcoming a nightmarish start on Monday that would normally bring even the stoutest of teams to their knees. There were four fumbles in the first quarter alone and half-a-dozen dropped passes in the opening 30 minutes. A deflected punt led to Montreal’s first offensive touchdown since Aug. 11 and a fumble by new Eskimos running back C.J. Gable was returned 56 yards for another major as the Alouettes jumped out to a 12-0 lead ...

The Eskimos are back to living the good life.

The Eskimos scored 22 unanswered points during the final four minutes and 12 seconds of regulation time – plus the overtime period – to rally for a 35-29 decision over the slumping B.C.
