EDMONTON - In Football 101's textbook of obvious facts, it says to beat another team, you've got to score more points.

Uh yeah, duh.

But to do that, to get the first win in franchise history, the Ottawa RedBlacks have a few things on their mind going into Game 2 of the season Friday night against the Eskimos.

Penalties. Turnovers. Special teams.

Take care of the first two and tighten up the third one and there's a pretty good chance they can beat the 2-0 Eskimos. Sure the Eskies are unbeaten ... but it's hard to imagine, coming off a 4-14 stinkaroo of a season, that they can't be handled by a team that's showing it can be much better than some people expected.
