MONTREAL - Some strange strategy, indeed, was on display Thursday night.

For the second week in a row, all three Edmonton Eskimos quarterbacks got into the game.

While this time around, they said it was planned as part of their game strategy, the end result was the same, and for the third week in a row the Eskimos lost, falling 32-27 to the Montreal Alouettes at Percival Molson Stadium.

It was the seventh-straight meeting between the two teams that went Montreal's way, and the Alouettes sixth-straight against Edmonton at home.

While it was shaping up to be a duel between two of the league's lowest-ranked quarterbacks — with Mike Reilly in his first year as a CFL starter, against 20-year veteran Anthony Calvillo — the Eskimos ended up playing through their entire quarterback rolodex in the first 25 minutes, marking the second consecutive game that Reilly, Jonathan Crompton and Kerry Joseph took snaps.
