Head coach Jason Maas couldn’t have scripted a better “feel-good” outing than the one the Eskimos delivered on Sunday afternoon at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. Quarterback Mike Reilly started a long list of fantasy-like performances by leading the starting offence to two easy touchdowns within the first eight minutes as the Eskimos jumped out to an early 14-0 lead over the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the CFL’s earliest pre-season game in history. Among the other highlights in ...

Nate Behar caught the first three passes of his CFL career, including a game-tying two-point convert with 82 seconds left on the clock, as the Eskimos rallied for a wild 33-30 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday night. Kicker Sean Whyte then booted a 44-yard field goal with 13 seconds remaining for the winning points at Winnipeg’s Investors Group Field. “It seems like when the game is on the line, he always comes up big,” Eskimos Head Coach Jason Maas said about Whyte, who ...

Johnny Manziel may have been signing autographs for the fans in the south-east corner of the stands at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium after Friday’s CFL game, but Jeremiah Masoli was the quarterback who delivered a star performance. Masoli, whose introduction to the CFL was spending the 2012 season on Edmonton’s injured list, led the Hamilton Tiger-Cats offence to a shocking 519 yards of net offence in an equally surprising 38-21 victory in front of 31,334 spectators. “We just ...

Sometimes, you have to be careful what you wish for. C.J. Gable had always wanted to be a workhorse running back during his five seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but rarely got the chance. He also had been quiet in the Eskimos’ offence this season, carrying the ball only 18 times for 76 yards during the first two games. That all changed Friday night when Gable worked overtime as the 2-1 Eskimos bounced back from their second-biggest loss at home during the previous 24 games dating back ...

Woulda. Coulda. Shoulda. The Eskimos played well enough to win Saturday’s CFL game with the Toronto Argonauts in front of 12,196 spectators at BMO Field, but they didn’t win because they made too many mistakes on execution and communication and took too many penalties. “That’s a game we’ll look back on and say we should have had a win handily if we would have done things how we’re expected to do them, but we weren’t even close to good enough tonight,” quarterback Mike Reilly said on the 630 ...

Lessons learned. The Eskimos corrected a lot of mistakes from last week to turn the tables on the Toronto Argonauts in a rain-soaked CFL game Friday night at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. The Esks were able to “finish” on a winning note – by a narrow 16-15 margin in front of 31,057 witnesses – because quarterback Mike Reilly and the offence maintained possession of the ball for nine plays covering 61 yards during the final two minutes and 23 seconds. This time, the Edmonton ...

Everybody may have been talking about Johnny Manziel during the past week, but Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly was the centre of attention on Thursday. Reilly threw for four touchdown passes and ran for another TD as the Eskimos scored a season-high 44 points in a romp over the Montreal Alouettes in front of 16,654 spectators at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium. It was only the third time that Reilly has had four scoring passes in a game during his 91-game CFL career. He also passed for 415 ...

It’s too early to start dreaming up colourful nicknames like the Eskimos “Alberta Crude” or Ottawa’s “Capital Punishment” from back in the 1970s, but Edmonton’s rebuilt defence is starting to find an identity. Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Chris Jones is supposed to be the defensive genius, but the Eskimos defence was just as good as Jones’ Scrooge-like unit on Thursday, limiting the Riders to just five points over seven possessions during the final 27 minutes and 19 seconds to record ...

If the Eskimos are going to play in the 106th Grey Cup on The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium in November, they’re going to have to get games like Thursday night out of their system. The Eskimos had everything seemingly under control with a 20-10 halftime lead, the offence had scored a touchdown all three times it was in the red zone (inside the opponent’s 20-yard line), and the defence was bringing all kinds of pressure against BC Lions quarterback Travis Lulay. And then they did ...

Mike Reilly‘s arm brought the heat on a chilly summer’s evening last night. After shouldering the blame for last week’s upset loss to the BC Lions, the veteran quarterback was throwing darts to a bullseye for most of the CFL game’s first half – completing 19 of his first 20 passes. When the smoke cleared, Reilly had passed for a season-high 424 yards, and three touchdowns as the Eskimos torched the Montreal Alouettes 40-24 in front of 29,702 happy customers at The Brick ...

The Labour Day Classic was everything Eskimos defensive end Alex Bazzie expected … except for the outcome. “It was a great atmosphere,” said Bazzie, a fifth-year CFL veteran, but first-year Eskimo. “It was a great game. It was a competitive game.” Bazzie previously played with the BC Lions, a team that doesn’t have an annual rivalry home-and-home series in the first week of September. But when he heard the urgency of 32,013 fans screaming and yelling at McMahon Stadium – especially ...

It took 10 attempts, but the Eskimos’ longest-serving player in the current lineup has finally won a Labour Day Rematch game. Calvin McCarty, a 12-year Eskimos veteran of 181 regular-season games since 2007, didn’t play because of an injury when Edmonton defeated the Calgary Stampeders 27-16 in 2015 to kick off a 10-game winning streak that culminated with a Grey Cup championship. The 33-year-old fullback is hoping for a similar result this year after the Esks cancelled the Stamps with a ...

One step forward. Two steps back. The Eskimos were trying to build momentum in a run towards the playoffs in their first game since a thrilling 48-42 victory over the provincial rival Calgary Stampeders – their highest-scoring performance in 14 years -, but that’s going to have to wait another week. The Esks suffered their fourth consecutive defeat on the road Saturday, dropping a 28-15 decision to the RedBlacks at Ottawa’s TD Place Stadium as rookie kicker Lewis Ward booted seven field ...

Ryan King was looking forward to celebrating his 100th CFL game on Saturday night. Instead, the Eskimos’ 32-year-old long-snapper will probably try to forget the milestone as quickly as possible. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers beat the Eskimos 30-3 in a result that shocked not only the 28,788 witnesses in the seats, but also Edmonton’s players themselves, who take a lot of pride in how they perform at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. The Eskimos had won each of their previous five home ...

It never rains, but it pours. The Eskimos can relate to the Li’l Abner cartoon character Joe Btfsplk, who always walked around with a small, dark rain cloud over his head to represent his bad luck. Just when the Eskimos appeared to be on the verge of winning for the first time in more than four weeks, a 49-yard interception-return touchdown by former Edmonton defensive lineman Willie Jefferson turned the tide..

Mike Reilly may have missed Friday’s walk-through practice because of the flu, but he still managed to play “lights out” Saturday afternoon, according to Head Coach Jason Maas. After being sick just the day before the game, Reilly once again looked like the quarterback who has often spoiled Eskimos fans with dominant performances since being acquired in a trade with the BC Lions in 2013. Reilly completed 31 of 38 passes for 369 yards while rushing for another 72 yards to help the Eskimos ...

The Eskimos still have a chance to make the CFL playoffs, but no longer control their destiny. Finishing in second or third place in the West Division went out the window with Friday’s 42-32 loss to the BC Lions in front of 20,463 witnesses at BC Place, and all that’s left is a possible crossover playoff berth in the East Division Semi-Final. For that to happen – and to lend any significance to Edmonton’s final game of the regular season against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at 2 p.m. ...
