Montreal Alouettes Will Have History on Their Side versus Edmonton Eskimos

Als have history on their side versus Eskimos

--

Not much has gone right this season for the Montreal Alouettes.

After opening with a win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Montreal has dropped three straight. Last week, the Alouettes squandered a 24-0 first-quarter lead in a 38-27 road loss to the Calgary Stampeders.

Montreal returns to Molson Stadium on Thursday night to face the Edmonton Eskimos (1-3) with history on its side.

The Alouettes have won eight of their last 10 meetings with Edmonton, with the Eskimos' last victory in Montreal coming in 2007.

Neither offence has done much this season, with Edmonton averaging a league-low 17 points per game and Montreal ranked second-last at 21 points. But the Alouettes showed signs of life early on against Calgary and receiver S.J. Green had seven catches for 121 yards, both game highs.

Montreal has a big advantage at quarterback with 20-year veteran Anthony Calvillo. Mike Reilly continues to learn the ropes in his first year as Edmonton's starter.

Conventional wisdom suggests Calvillo and Co. are due to break out despite being 0-2 at home.

Pick -- Montreal.

Calgary Stampeders at Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday night.

Backup Justin Goltz gets the start for Winnipeg (1-3) after veteran Buck Pierce suffered an abdominal injury in last week's 35-19 home loss to Toronto.

The four-year veteran was 13-of-15 passing for 170 second-half yards after Pierce was hurt. He'll make his first career CFL start against Calgary.

The good news for Winnipeg's defence is defensive tackle Bryant Turner might play. He's missed the last two games with a chest injury and was leading the CFL in sacks before he was hurt.

Who starts for Calgary (3-1) remains a mystery. Incumbent Drew Tate is still out with a strained forearm while backup Kevin Glenn hurt his elbow against Montreal. That could leave third-stringer Bo Levi Mitchell under centre versus Winnipeg.

Whoever plays quarterback still has running back Jon Cornish (413 yards) to hand off to and reliable receivers such as Nik Lewis and Joe West to throw to. And Calgary showed its resiliency last week rallying past Montreal.

Pick -- Calgary.

Saskatchewan Roughriders at Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday

The Riders (4-0) rolled to a 37-0 home win over Hamilton on Sunday. It's unclear if Saskatchewan quarterback Darian Durant will play in the rematch at Alumni Stadium.

Durant was the CFL's offensive player of the week after passing for 347 yards and four TDs against Hamilton but was back wearing a walking boot Wednesday. …
