"Finally, finally, finally, finally we got it done".

Burris found Jackson - who bobbled the pass - on the first overtime possession but couldn't couldn't hit a wide-open Khalil Paden for the two-point convert.

Former Chatham-Kent Cougars offensive lineman Randy Beardy won the CFL's Grey Cup as a member of the Ottawa Redblacks Sunday in Toronto. "We turned the ball over, (I was taking too many shots)".

"I remember talking with Marcel when we had no coaches, no players was that we were just going to try to get as good as we could as fast as we could", said Campbell. "Right there knocking. Just didn't get it done". One of the most spectacular seasons in CFL history would mean absolutely nothing if they walked away without the Grey Cup.

"Rene Paredes" 10-yard field goal with nine seconds remaining forced the extra session as Calgary impressively rallied from a 27-7 third-quarter deficit.

The drama started long before the opening kickoff when Burris limped off the field at the end of warmups after tweaking his left knee.

Henry Burris couldn't believe what was happening. Messam ran for 59 yards on six carries.

"Right now all I want to do is enjoy the party". "I mean it looked a little shaky about there the last about a minute and a half and about the last 30 seconds".

"I think you know the answer to that question", he said.

"I'm not sure what the hell happened but he played one of his best games and he was focused".

The last team to win the Cup with a poorer record was Toronto in 2012 when the 9-9-0 Argos beat 12-6-0 Calgary 35-22.

Calgary was a league-best 15-2-1 and was coming off a 42-15 West Division final win over B.C.

They also captured five individual honours at Thursday night's award ceremony, including Mitchell, who won the most outstanding player award.

The 104th Grey Cup also saw some major gains globally. His mother, Renee Hill, attended the game wearing her son's No. 31 jersey and huddled with the defensive backs prior to the contest.

Mitchell would finish the evening by completing 28 of 41 passes for 391 yards and three touchdowns, so it wasn't as if it was all bad. Burris had thrown for over 200 yards by the time the first half was over.

"I know it hurts. but still consider this a major successful season". "Did you guys see anything because I certainly didn't?"

Burris played in just eight games during the regular season after dealing with injuries during the early portion of the year. But those guys in that locker room and our city, we never stopped believing, ” Burris said.

An overtime touchdown by Ernest Jackson was the difference-maker for Ottawa, in a game that is being called one of the most thrilling Grey Cup matches in history.
