Hand this one to Clarence Denmark -- the Bombers receiver paid a price in pain, but if he hadn't hauled down an urgent 58-yard bomb that set up the Bombers' second touchdown, it might have been over earlier than it was... he finished with five catches for 115 yards, his biggest outing of the season.
The whole night was a defensive grind, but the Bombers had little answer for mean Riders defensive end John Chick, who clawed his way through to the Bombers quarterback three times, a season high for him.
ñº SPECIAL TEAMS
With just over two minutes left to play and the Bombers reeling from the winning interception touchdown, Aaron Woods' spirited 33-yard scamper helped keep life in the Bombers' game -- especially as he drew an unnecessary roughness penalty on the play.
Yards on the first eight carries for tailback Nic Grigsby.
Interceptions by quarterback Willy. Coming into the night he'd had four all season.
Official attendance, the first sell-out at Investors Group Field since the 2013 Banjo Bowl.
Nothing says halftime fun like watching grown men cram fish tacos down their gullets, so, um, congrats to professional eater Joey Chestnut who slurped 30 of them in five minutes. The crowd responded with a mix of curiosity and disgust. Speaking of disgustiosity, Twitter user @ScottElder8 snapped a picture of a fan in the Investors Group Field stands wearing a green Stegall jersey. Green! "He's confused," Milt himself replied on Twitter. "Give him some time, and he'll figure it out."
Don't count on seeing Henoc Muamba back home in Canada any time soon: The former Bombers linebacker was a beast in his pre-season NFL debut for the Indianapolis Colts. He racked up nine tackles, two assisted tackles and a forced fumble in a 13-10 loss to the New York Jets.
