Quarterbacks Steven Jyles and Kerry Joseph combined to complete three touchdown passes as the Edmonton Eskimos finally produced some offence in a 42-10 romp over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Commonwealth Stadium on Friday.
The Eskimos, who only scored one point in a loss last week to Saskatchewan and 19 in their season opener, improved to 2-1 on the season.
Edmonton scored 18 points off turnovers in the first half.
The Bombers, who continue to struggle during a four-game road trip to open the season, now sit winless at 0-3.
Winnipeg's problems were further compounded by the loss of their top two quarterbacks, Buck Pierce and Alex Brink, during the game.
Edmonton's special teams unit opened the scoring by doing something the offence was unable to do the previous game _ score a touchdown. Midway through the first quarter, Lee Robinson forced a fumble on a punt return by Demond Washington and Clint Keith followed up to snag the loose ball and ramble 29 yards into the end zone for a 7-0 Eskimos lead.(The Canadian Press/rp)
