Following a season opening tie against the Calgary Stampeders the Ottawa Redblacks travel across Canada to Calgary to once again face off against the Stampeders. The defending Grey Cup Champions, the Redblacks need a win against Calgary to keep pace in the CFL's Eastern Conference.

Quarterback Trevor Harris threw for 300 yards and 1 touchdown in the Redblacks season opener and is hoping to post similar numbers in the second game of the year. Brad Sinopoli (10 catches, 88 yards) and Greg Ellingson (13 catches, 66 yards) were Harris' top targets in game one. The unhearlded Brandon Gillanders led the Redblacks in rushing in game one with 12 rushes for 80 yards.
After failing to defeat the Redblacks on the road in the first game of the CFL season, the Calgary Stampeders are hoping to garner their first win of the season when they battle the Redblacks at home.

Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell is trying to turn his CFL success into a shot in the NFL. Mitchell threw for 376 yards and 2 touchdowns in the season opener and continues to post monster numbers in Canada. Former Denver Bronco Marquay McDaniel caught 15 passes for 140 yards in the season opener. Davaris Daniels (6 catches, 90 yards) and Kamar Jordan (11 catches, 72 yards, 1 TD) are additional players to watch for the Stampeders. Jerome Messam ran for only 65 yards in the season opener but is always a threat on the ground.
