EDMONTON - The Edmonton Eskimos lost the game and the grip on their own playoff destiny, but they at least kept their quarterbacks in one piece on Saturday.

One week after suffering a concussion, Mike Reilly was back in to start the CFL's Hall of Fame game against the Montreal Alouettes as his Eskimos looked to gain ground in an East Division crossover playoff bid.

Except Montreal had post-season designs of their own in mind, with a 47-24 win to sweep the season 2013 series 2-0 over the Eskimos, who fell to 3-11 on the year.

That means Edmonton has to run the table on their last four games against opponents from a West Division they have yet to record a victory in, and Montreal would have to lose their last four.
