CFL Gameday: Edmonton at Calgary (July 23, 2011)

It may be the marquee match up of the weekend in the CFL, the undefeated Edmonton Eskimos make the trip down to Calgary and a showdown with their provincial rivals the Stampeders.

The Esks have had an impressive start to the season, running up an undefeated record and some startling offensive numbers, while the Stamps have struggled during their first three games. While they have two wins to make note of, if but for a bounce of the ball or a deflection the other way and they could very easily be 0-3.

The Stamps who of late could probably have taken the two points from the Eskimos as granted, won't be able to make that mistake in week four, the Esks have been full value for their wins thus far and no doubt have ambitions to extend their run at McMahon Stadium.

Below you can find information about the second of the Saturday match ups, offering previews and game reviews, as well as other items of note from and other sources.
