3) Shaky start by both quarterbacks

Ray and Kevin Glenn entered the game ranked sixth and 11th respectively all-time for passing yards in the CFL. However, both had their problems early on as each of them threw an interception, albeit with different outcomes.

The home quarterback was the first one to make a mistake, as Ray threw a pick on the opening offensive play of the game. Fortunately for the Argonauts, the Stampeders had to punt after failing to take advantage of the opportunity presented to them.

As the second quarter started, Calgary were trailing 7-3 but had the ball. However, Glenn was picked off by Pacino Horne, who took the ball back 25 yards to the house to help give the Argonauts a commanding 14-3 lead.

While Ray had what would be considered an average game by his lofty standards, he still finished with 18 completions from 30 attempts, 231 passing yards, two touchdowns and the aforementioned pick. By comparison Glenn never really got going, completing just 14 of 27 passes for 222 and his pick six before being replaced by a certain Bo Levi Mitchell.
