Game review

RANDY SPORTAK, QMI Agency

Three Stamps who stood out

1. QB Drew Tate — Saw the most action in a game as a pro and did well enough by completing 18-of-29 passes for 249 yards. No touchdowns, though.

2. K Rob Maver — The field goals were within range. Solid in punting duties, too, with a pair over 50 yards.

3. CB Johnnie Dixon — You have to like an 82-yard interception return for a TD from a prospect.

Catch of the game

Stampeders DB Johnnie Dixon perfectly jumped from his spot when Edmonton QB Jason Maas threw a long pass to the sidelines. Dixon not only stepped in front of the receiver to make the interception but also raced 82 yards for the touchdown.

Notables

Veteran cornerbacks Dwight Anderson and Brandon Browner made the trip up instead of LB Robert McCune and CB Chris Bowens, as both are out due to injury ... Both starting quarterbacks — Calgary’s Henry Burris and Edmonton’s Ricky Ray — only saw the field for the first two series before giving way ... Rookie OT Edwin Harrison suffered a leg injury halfway through the first quarter and was carted to the dressing room. He’s in a battle with Sam Allen for the right tackle position.
