REGINA -- David Lee sacked Darian Durant to prevent a game-tying two-point convert with 14 seconds on the clock and John Chiles caught passes for a game-high 104 yards as the Toronto Argonauts beat the reeling Saskatchewan Roughriders 31-29 Saturday in a battle of CFL division leaders.
The Argos also intercepted Durant three times to send Saskatchewan (8-3) to its second straight loss while Toronto (7-4) won its second in a row.
The game was a back-and-forth affair with Saskatchewan scoring 20 straight points to erase an 11-0 deficit and the Argonauts adding 19 straight of their own in the fourth quarter.
Chiles caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Toronto QB Zach Collaros as well as the two-point convert to tie the game at 23 after Swayze Waters broke the Argos' scoring drought with a 33-yard field goal to open the fourth.
Toronto got the ball back immediately when Alonzo Lawrence caught Durant's third interception of the game and Jerious Norwood capitalized on a two-yard touchdown run that put the Argonauts ahead for good.
Saskatchewan got the ball back with 53 seconds left and Durant hit Chris Getzlaf with a 45-yard pass to set up an 18-yard TD throw to Getzlaf, making it 31-29.
But Durant's protection broke down on the two-point attempt to give the Argos the win.
Durant finished 25 of 50 for 381 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions. Collaros went 18 for 29 for 225 yards with one touchdown and one pick.
Saskatchewan lost to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last Sunday.
