Special teams: Rookie Felix Menard-Briere handled all the kicking duties for Winnipeg, including three punts for an average of 47.7 and a net average of 42.0. He also hit one of his three field goal attempts.

THE LEADERS

Rushing

Timothy Flanders: four carries for 62 yards and a 15.5-yard average, including a 46-yard TD romp in the fourth quarter.

KEY PLAY

Winnipeg quarterback Dominique Davis found rookie wideout L’Damian Washington behind coverage for a lunging 60-yard completion in the third quarter. The play set up Davis’ seven-yard TD run, which gave the Bombers their first lead of the game and capped a four-play, 102-yard scoring drive.
