The Winnipeg Blue Bombers gave up 20 consecutive points and lost 22-19 to the defending Grey Cup champion Alouettes in Montreal. It's the seventh time this season the Blue Bombers have lost a game by four points or less and that ties a CFL record. Winnipeg trailed 22-11 when Steven Jyles and Terrence Edwards hooked up on a 72-yard touchdown pass with 1:13 left in the fourth quarter. Brock Ralph caught the two-point convert to get the Bombers within three points. The Winnipeg defence forced a two-and-out and had the ball on its own 21 yard line. The rally fell short as Alouettes linebacker Chip Cox stripped Terence Jeffers-Harris of the ball near midfield with eight seconds remaining. Jyles completed 16 of 28 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw two interceptions. The Bombers are 4-11 and have been eliminated from East Division playoff contention. Winnipeg is still alive in the crossover for third place in the West Division. The Blue Bombers, who have lost eight road games this season, are two points back of the B.C. Lions and Edmonton Eskimos. The Bombers, who have three games left, would have to finish with more points than the Lions and Eskimos in order to qualify for the playoffs in the West.
