How The Argonauts Won the 105th Grey Cup
The competition is widely regarded as one of the top games in Canadian football. It was no surprise that the game was against two of the strongest teams from the regular season. Argonauts came in with a record of 9-9 from the East division, while Stampeders were coming in with a 13-4-1 record. The former coming into the game after having had a strong regular season, in which they managed 28 touchdowns. Momentum is clearly not with Stampeders, as they came into the game after having been on a losing streak. Stampeders lost three consecutive matches for the first time in a decade when they came into this match. This clearly seems to have been the fundamental reason why Stampeders were unable to build on the good head-to-head record.
