KIRK PENTON -- Winnipeg Sun

REMEMBER WHEN ...

The Bombers squeaked out a 27-24 win over the Alouettes at the Stadium on Sept. 20, 2002? Dave Ritchie pulled an ineffective Khari Jones for the first time in his Bomber career, and Pat Barnes completed 11 of 13 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown in relief as Winnipeg improved to 7-5.

KEEP AN EYE ON ...

Chris Brazzell, No. 84

Razzle Dazzle is moving from wide receiver to slotback, giving the Bombers their best-looking receiving corps of the season. Will that result in quarterback Kevin Glenn having his best game of the year?

QUIRKY STAT ...

Who said it's hard to sweep a home-and-home series? The teams that have won the opener of back-to-back meetings this season are a respectable 4-6 in the rematch.

FORECAST ...

Rain ending late in the morning, then cloudiness. Light winds and a high of 11 C.

FINAL SAY ...

"One game won't solve all our problems, but one game will get us back on the right track. We have an excellent, excellent group of guys. We're going to be OK."
