OTTAWA - This was painful. The Ottawa RedBlacks let one slip through their hands, literally.

For the record, it will go down as a 10-8 Edmonton Eskimos win in front of another sellout loud crowd at TD Place, with a 27-yard field goal by Grant Shaw, providing the deciding margin.

Ottawa led the entire game, until the game-winner with 20 seconds left.

Despite an outstanding defensive effort by the Redblacks, yep, DEEEEEFENCE, the offence couldn't hang onto the ball at key times. Oh, my God. Dropped passes. Dropped passes. Dropped passes. Basic stuff. See ball. Catch ball. Run with ball. In that order. But to run with ball, you have to have ball in your possession. Marcus Henry, Wallace Miles, Onrea Jones and Matt Carter all dropped passes that should have been caught. And a fumble by Carter inside the Eskimos 10-yard line late in the game allowed Edmonton to drive the field and score the winning points.
