Both Edmonton and Winnipeg come in off their first wins of the season and will look to make it two straight here on Wednesday night.
Edmonton Opened as 3.5 point favorites, but have since dropped to 3 after money has flown in on the home team.
The Eskimos season is just 2 games in, but they’ve already been involved in a couple dramatic situations.
Edmonton dropped their opener in overtime to Ottawa, but responded with an overtime win of their own against Saskatchewan last week.
The Eskimos tied things up with a field goal with 4 seconds remaining, before hitting another one to seal their first win of the season in overtime.
The win was well deserving, as the Eskimos rattled off 492 yards of total offense, as for the 2nd straight week they attacked both through the air and on the ground.
John White IV set the tone rushing as he finished with 96 yards on 17 carries with a touchdown. White now has a touchdown in each of the first two games this season.
QB Mike Reilly continues to impress as well. In the first two weeks, Reilly has compiled 761 yards to go along with 5 passing touchdowns, to just 1 interception.
Edmonton’s key to success comes on the defensive end. The defense has been sloppy through the first two games, but has been bailed out by the strong offensive numbers.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
After seeing their offense struggle through the first two games of the season, Winnipeg got just enough from QB Drew Willy to earn their first win of the season last week in Hamilton.
Willy finished 32/42 with 279 yards and a touchdown.
While Winnipeg’s offense hasn’t compiled more than 28 points on the season, their defense has proven they have the ability to completely change a game.
After keeping the Blue Bombers around in their first two games, they used an interception return for a touchdown here to shift the momentum in the game.
Maurice Leggett finished the game with a pair of interceptions to lead the defense.
Look for them to use the pressure here once again and try to force QB Mike Reilly into some tough situations.
It’s been their recipe to success through their first 3 games, getting pressure into the backfield and making the opposing QB make quick and inaccurate decisions.
