The Edmonton Eskimos have won the 2015 CFL championship title, beating the Ottawa RedBlacks, 26-20 in the 103rd Grey Cup.
If Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly has his way, this group of Eskimos will be celebrating a Canadian Football League championship again in the near future.
“We were not built to do this once, with the GM that we have, the coaching staff that we have and the players that they brought in,” said Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly. “We’ve been built to do this multiple times and it’s on us to make sure that that happens.”
Back-to-back pass interference penalties aided the Eskimos on their game-winning drive, moving the ball from the Edmonton 35 to the Ottawa 10-yard line. A nine-yard catch by Nate Coehoorn put the ball at the one-yard line, and Lynch pushed his way into the end zone on a third-down gamble.
The Eskimos, who extended their longest winning streak since 1982 to 10 games, once again outscored their opponents in the fourth quarter. They owned the final 15 minutes for eight straight games until giving up a couple of touchdowns to the Calgary Stampeders in the West Division final.
