The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are now 0-2 out of the gate after a 36-22 loss in Calgary Friday night.
Calgary running back Jerome Messam caused problems for the Bombers defense all night as he carried for 137 yards. And from the air the Stampeders were even more dangerous. Bo Levi Mitchell threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns.
Bomber back up QB Matt Nichols ran in a one yard score in the second and Drew Willy threw TD passes to Darvin Adams and Jace Davis in the fourth quarter.
With the loss Winnipeg have lost 13 of their last 14 games in Calgary.
The Bombers will continue a quest for a first victory in 2016 on Thursday in Hamilton.
