After a pair of lackluster performances against the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Edmonton Eskimos, the British Columbia Lions proved that they were still a significant force in the Western Division with a commanding 34-8 win over the Calgary Stampeders.
Travis Lulay also showed why he was the Grey Cup Most Outstanding Player. He was flawless Saturday with 315 yards passing and three touchdowns.
Paul McCallum also went perfect in the kicking game, going four for four.
The bottom line is the Stampeders got completely outplayed in every aspect of their game. How they will respond to this thrashing will go a long way if they can salvage their season.
With the loss, Calgary drops to 2-3 and sit in last place in the Western Division, two points back of each of their division foes who sit at 3-2. The Stampeders grade this week is a D.
