Stampeder quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell was without his favourite target — injured receiver Eric Rogers — and struggled completing just 12 of 28 pass attempts for 116 yards. Mitchell was intercepted three times.

Winnipeg faced Calgary in a third straight game Sunday. The Bombers had a bye week after splitting 1-1 with the Stampeders to cap their regular season.

Trailing 14-8 at halftime, the Bombers scored 27 unanswered points in the second half in front of an announced 24,278 at a chilly McMahon Stadium.

Morning snowfall halted and gave way to partly cloudy skies at kickoff with a temperature of minus-14.

Mitchell was intercepted on consecutive drives in the fourth quarter by Nick Taylor and Mercy Maston respectively.

Calgary turned the ball over on downs with just over three minutes remaining in the game.

Streveler scored a 24-yard rushing touchdown at 8:35. Medlock's 42-yard field goal at 7:23 hit the right upright, but made it through for the three points.

Trevor Harris big wildcard for Edmonton in East Division final versus Hamilton

  Trevor Harris big wildcard for Edmonton in East Division final versus Hamilton It's hard to forget the last time Trevor Harris faced the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Harris had a CFL playoff-record six touchdown passes in last year's East Division final. Of course, that was while he was a member of the Ottawa Redblacks, who secured a 46-27 victory before dropping a 27-16 decision to the Calgary Stampeders in the Grey Cup. On Sunday, Harris will lead Edmonton into Tim Hortons Field for the East final against a Hamilton squad that posted a CFL-best 15-3 regular-season record. Included were two victories against the Eskimos that Harris missed due to injury. Edmonton is attempting to become the first crossover team to reach the Grey Cup.
