The team that hardly anyone believed would be even .500 this season is now 4-1 and showing no signs of slowing down.

The Bombers are also boasting a mental toughness that hasn’t been seen in the Manitoba capital for quite some time, as they bounced back from what could have been a season-changing, 26-3 home loss to the Edmonton Eskimos and hammered the B.C. Lions 23-6 on Friday night.

It also snapped an 11-game West Division road losing streak for the Blue and Gold.

“It’s huge, because it basically keeps our team focused on the goal,” veteran defensive tackle Bryant Turner said. “Everybody doesn’t second guess the system. Whatever we’re doing, we’re going to keep doing it and try to perfect it even more."
