HEAD-TO-HEAD

Calgary easily won the season-opener at McMahon Stadium, 37-9. The Stamps lost in Hamilton last year the week after the Tiger-Cats fired head coach Greg Marshall. Calgary is 4-6 in their last 10 at Ivor Wynne but are 7-3 in past 10 overall.

KEY STAT

99 -- The rushing yardage for Henry Burris in the season opener, which kept drives alive against a decent effort by the Ticats defence. With Casey Printers on the other side, quarterback mobility will be an important aspect of whichever offence is more effective.

KEY MATCHUP

Tiger-Cats WR Jason Armstead vs. Stamps DB Sadrick Williams (or Brandon Browner) -- Browner sprained an ankle in practice this week and will be a game-time decision. If Browner doesn't go, Williams will move into his boundary corner spot, where Armstead will be Casey Printers go-to receiver with Brock Ralph out.

3 KEYS TO VICTORY

1. Contain Casey -- The Stamps would love to make new Ticats QB Casey Printers a pocket passer, which isn't his strength. The 2004 CFL most-outstanding player for the Lions is best when scrambling around waiting for the defence to break down.

2. Stay hot -- Calgary's offence has heated up as quarterback Henry Burris has become more comfortable in recent weeks. Burris is the reigning offensive player of the week after throwing five TDs passes last week. He has hit the 300-yard mark for passing in seven of the past eight games.

3. Let loose on Lumsden -- When Ticats running back Jesse Lumsden gets rolling downhill, the massive Canadian is hard to stop. This is his first game back after missing three games with a clavicle injury.

STAMPS INJURY REPORT

DB Brandon Browner is a game-time decision due to his ankle. C John Comiskey and DL Miguel Robede move to the injured list. Other scratches: RB Ken Simonton, P Burke Dales and DB Calvin Bannister. DL Anthony Gargiulo moves to the practice roster from the injured list.
