Bombers Cough It Up in 23-10 Loss to Ottawa
Throughout this season, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have feasted off their opponent’s turnovers. When they take the ball away, and do it often, good things tend to happen.
On Saturday, that script flipped. The Bombers coughed up five turnovers against the Ottawa REDBLACKS, with many of their best drives ending prematurely, eventually resulting in a 23-10 loss.
Unfortunately for Winnipeg, one of their steadiest players was the main culprit, as quarterback Matt Nichols threw a season-high three interceptions in the loss.
“It’s on me, and anytime you don’t score points on offence, it falls on the quarterback,” said Nichols. “So I feel like I kind of let the guys down tonight and I picked a bad time to play my worst game of the season.”
