Stampeder’s Sweep Eskimos

The Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers faced off for second time this season with first place at stake.

Eskimos Thump Argonauts

The last time the Edmonton Eskimos and the Toronto Argonauts played one another, it was a very lopsided 26-0 win for the Eskimos.

Eskimos Hang On To Defeat RedBlacks

Having lost three of their last four games, the Edmonton Eskimos could not afford another loss this week against the visiting Ottawa RedBlacks.

The ‘Battle of Alberta’ got off to an earlier start this year. For the first time since 2014, the Eskimos and the Stampeder’s would play one another before their traditional Labour Day match.

After losing two of their last three games, the Edmonton Eskimos were looking to get back in the ‘win column’ against the visiting Toronto Argonauts.

The Eskimos defeated the Montreal Alouette’s in the first week of the season 32-25. The offence put up 447 yards passing, 161 yards rushing and had the ball for over 34 minutes. That was then…and this is now! The Montreal Alouette’s are not the same team the Eskimos faced in week one and they were...

Ricky Ray to go on the Wall of Honour

When Ricky Ray arrived in Edmonton back in 2002, he was listed as the third string quarterback behind incumbent Jason Maas and Bart Hendricks. As I watched that training camp, there was one thing that was clear. Ricky Ray had a ‘touch’ that allowed him to put the ball where only his receiver could get...

Eskimos Crush Lions!

Coming off the bye week the Eskimos were looking to rebound after a tough loss against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. While the offence had more than 400 yards in that game, they failed to find the end zone and had to settle for seven field goals. The offence would have to be much better this...
