In his return to the House that Hugh built, Rick Campbell missed out on his first win as a rookie CFL head coach while Chris Jones once again avoided his first loss as a rookie CFL head coach.

On Friday, the Ottawa RedBlacks — making that city's first appearance at Commonwealth stadium since their last CFL rendition was here to open the 2005 season — couldn't hold onto a five-point halftime lead over the Edmonton Eskimos, who won 27-11 to improve to 3-0 on the season.

Adarius Bowman had three touchdown catches and defensive tackle Almondo Sewell had three sacks as the Eskimos put up their most convincing win of an undefeated season, setting up a showdown for first place in the West Division against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers next week.
