2016 Grey Cup

The 104th Grey Cup (Officially the 104th Grey Cup presented by Shaw) was a Canadian football game that was played on November 27, 2016, between the Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa Redblacks, that decided the champion for the 2016 CFL season. In a massive upset, Ottawa defeated the heavily favoured Stampeders 39-33 in overtime to win a championship in just their third season of existence.




The Redblacks ended a 40 year championship drought for the city of Ottawa that spanned three CFL franchises and 27 football seasons of play. After going 8-9-1 during the regular season the Redblacks became the first CFL team to win a championship with a sub .500 record.

Game Summary

Ottawa took an early lead only to have their opponents mount a second half comeback. After recovering an onside kick while trailing 33-30, the Stampeders were compelled to settle for a field goal on their final drive in regulation to force overtime. In overtime, Redblacks quarterback Henry Burris threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Ernest Jackson to re-take a 39-33 lead. After Ottawa failed to convert the requisite two point attempt, Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell threw three consecutive incomplete passes to end the game.
