CFL Football - Ottawa Redblacks vs Edmonton Eskimos August 6, 2016.

Saturday Night Football in the Capital. In front of a sold out crowd at TD Place stadium 24,569 fans witnessed the Edmonton Eskimos fall to the Redblacks for the second time this season. Ottawa looking to rebound from two straight losses both of which could have easily been wins for the third year franchise but penalties and missed opportunities left many wondering where has our Grey Cup contender gone. The team came out with something to prove, inside the locker room the players and staff know they have something special and can count on one another to do their part. The game remained close all night long with the offence on both sides looking to put up the kind of points they did in the first meeting this year, it wasn't to be as tonight the Defence ruled the field. The defensive line could be seen putting pressure on  quarterback Mike Reilly who took a lot of hits and showed his toughness. With less than 4 minutes remaining in the game Henry Burris led the offence on a 7 play 78 yard drive to tie the game at 20. With the game tied and the clock winding down Jermaine Robinson intercepted Mike Reilly and returned it 49 yards to the Eskimos 24, two plays later kicker Chris Milo put the Redbalcks ahead 23-20 and just like that, Ottawa heads into the bye week with the win and first place in the East division.
