1981 GREY CUP GAME AT MONTREAL (Sunday, November 22 - 52,478)
EDMONTON ESKIMOS 26, OTTAWA ROUGH RIDERS 23 - It wasn’t supposed to be this close. The Edmonton Eskimos were seeking an unprecedented fourth straight Grey Cup title, winners of a league record 14 regular season games. Their opponents were the Ottawa Rough Riders -- perhaps the worst team in CFL history to make a Grey Cup final -- winners of just five regular season games. The Eskimos entered the game as 22½ -point favourites. But someone forgot to tell the club from Ottawa. Led by rookie quarterback J.C. Watts, the Riders jumped to a surprising 20-1 advantage at halftime in the freezing temperature of Montreal’s Olympic Stadium. A pair of 34 and 37-yard field goals by Gerry Organ in the game’s opening 10 minutes gave the Riders their initial lead. Ottawa continued its assault late in the first quarter when Rick Sowieta intercepted a poor throw by Edmonton quarterback Warren Moon, helping to set up a one-yard touchdown run by Jim Reid. Those who thought Ottawa’s 13-0 lead was an anomaly continued to be amazed in the second quarter. Moon was intercepted again, this time by John Glassford, helping to set up Sam Platt’s 14-yard touchdown run. Moon was lifted for a short period in favour of Tom Wilkinson, playing in his final CFL game. Once his composure was regained, Moon was sent back on the field and jump started the Edmonton offence in the second half. Jim Germany scored Edmonton’s initial touchdown, scoring on a two-yard run. It helped that Ottawa began to self-destruct. A Watts fumble was recovered by Dale Potter, putting the Eskimos on Ottawa’s three-yard line. Four plays later, Moon scored on a goal-line sneak. Moon, however, had a costly fumble on his own in the fourth quarter, setting up Organ’s 28-yard field goal to put Ottawa in front by eight. But Moon made up for this gaffe with another goal-line touchdown with less than five minutes remaining. A successful pass to Marco Cynear for a two-point convert tied the score, setting up some late-game dramatics. With three seconds left in regulation, veteran place kicker Dave Cutler booted a 27-yard field goal to send the Eskimos to the record books. Cutler had missed from 24 yards out in the first half. It marked the last game for Ottawa’s Tony Gabriel in his Hall of Fame career. Gabriel played the final with an injured left knee.

DIVISION SEMI-FINALS
Sun Nov 8 - OTTAWA 20, Montreal 16 (17754) - When Nelson Skalbania purchased the Als in April, CFL officials predicted that the franchise would prosper. Instead, the Als were inept,  qualifying as the team with the poorest record to make the playoffs, and lost about $2.5-million. With 36 seconds left, QB Ken Johnson, nine yards from the Ottawa goal, fired a strike to Chuck McMann only to see the ball knocked away by Larry Brune and Rick Sowieta.
Sun Nov 8 - British Columbia 15, WINNIPEG 11 (32936) - Lions RB John Henry White picked up 158 yards on 17 carries, including a 50-yard run midway through the fourth quarter that helped set up a FG. Winnipeg QB Dieter completed 24 of 37 passes for just 177 yards.
DIVISION FINALS
Sun Nov 15 - Ottawa 17, HAMILTON 13 (28104) - QB Tom Clements threw three costly interceptions, including one to Glenn Cook in the Ottawa end zone when the Ticats were ahead 13-7 and 13 yards from the goalline. Rider QB J.C. Watts completed 19 of 39 passes for 311 yards, but his clutch scrambling was particularly beneficial. He gained 46 yards on six carries.
Sun Nov 15 - EDMONTON 22, British Columbia 16 (52861) - Warren Moon threw a 33-yard TD pass to Brian Kelly with a little more than five minutes left to give the Eskimos the win. The Lions led by 16-9 at halftime and were still ahead, 16-15, after three quarters. Moon completed only seven of 20 passes in the first half, but finally began to connect in the fourth quarter.
SATURDAY OCTOBER 31
Hamilton 21, TORONTO 11 - Hamilton took home a mere 10-point victory, giving them 11 wins for the season. That's more wins than the other three Eastern teams could muster altogether.
BRIT COL 13, Saskatchewan 5 (21183) - RB Larry Key's late two-yard TD gave the Lions a playoff berth in a torrential downpour. QB Joe Barnes' fumble was recovered by B.C. DB Nick Hebeler at the Rider two with 2:42 left
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 1
MONTREAL 39, Ottawa 15 (20867) - Clinching a playoff berth, the Als had a 357 yards of offense, 126 rushing and 231 passing, compared with 327 net yards for the Rough Riders, while Als RB David Overstreet ran for 110 yards
WINNIPEG 44, Calgary 6 (27534) - Dieter Brock surpassed the record for passing yardage and Eugene Goodlow set a mark for receptions. Brock brought his yardage total to 4,896 yards, and Goodlow caught his 100th pass
