Head-to-head

IAN BUSBY -- Sun Media

, Last Updated: 8:32 AM ET

This is the first of two meetings this season. The Stamps won both outings in dramatic fashion a year ago. Sandro DeAngelis kicked the winning field goal in a 27-24 win at McMahon Stadium. And the Stamps pulled out trickery for a 40-23 win at McGill Stadium.

KEY STAT

27 -- The number of sacks allowed by the Alouettes' offence this season in just six games as they work through injuries on their offensive line.

KEY MATCHUP

Alouettes WR Kerry Watkins vs. Stampeders DB Brandon Browner -- Als QB Anthony Calvillo said Watkins has his work cut out trying break off the jam Browner will put on him at the line of scrimmage.

3 KEYS TO VICTORY

1. Cover Cahoon -- SB Ben Cahoon has caught 30.9% of QB Anthony Calvillo's completions, so it's simple to expect if you shut down Cahoon, the Als' offence will struggle.

2. Road to recovery -- The Stamps need to shake off the pain of another short week. It's their second with back-to-back road games.

3. Maxie to the rescue -- Due to two injuries on the defensive line, the Stamps coaxed veteran Demetrious Maxie out of retirement.

STAMPS' MOVES

SB Ken-Yon Rambo for SB Marc Boerigter (knee). DL Demetrious Maxie for DT Keron Williams (groin). DE Tearrius George for Anthony Gargiulo (ankle). CB Sadrick Williams for Crance Clemons. Pat MacDonald is activated as an extra Canadian.
