CALGARY - Jon Cornish has heard the Edmonton Eskimos want to limit his yards in Sundays CFL West Division final. Norichika Aoki Jersey . It echoes what the Calgary Stampeders star has heard throughout the three seasons hes been the dominant running back in the league.When you play this sport at the level I do, every week theres going to be people gunning for me. Thats how it is, Cornish said.That is the reality of my life. People are going to be out gunning for me. Because Im a main piece of this offence, shutting me down is going to be of critical importance to teams that want to beat us. I learned that a long time ago, so I dont think anything different.Calgary (15-3) and Edmonton (12-6) meet at McMahon Stadium in the first all-Alberta division final since 2001.The winner advances to the Grey Cup in Vancouver on Nov. 30. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes (9-9) square off Sunday in the East Division final.Calgarys last trip to a Grey Cup was in 2012 and their last win came in 2008. Edmontons last appearance and victory in the CFLs championship game was in 2005.Edmontons defence ranks second in the CFL in defending the rush, but corralling the three-time CFL rushing leader and winner of the Most Outstanding Player award in 2013 is no easy task.Cornish appeared in just half of Calgarys regular-season games, yet won the leagues rushing title a third straight year with 1,082 yards. Cornish posted over 100 yards in six of his nine games, including two he played against Edmonton.The 30-year-old from New Westminster, B.C., ran for a combined 272 yards, two touchdowns and a dozen first downs in the Labour Day series versus the Esks on Sept. 1 and Sept. 6. Calgary won those games by scores of 28-13 and 41-34. We want to stop him because their offence does evolve around him most of the time, Eskimos defensive end Willie Jefferson said in Edmonton this week. We have to slow him down, make them try to find another way to win the game without him.”Cornish also won the CFLs Outstanding Canadian honour in 2012 and 2013 and is a finalist for it a third straight year. His performance so far in 2014 begs the question, what numbers could Cornish have reached in the regular season if hed been healthier?He didnt participate in a 26-22 victory over the Esks on July 21. He was knocked out in the season-opener against Montreal and sidelined the next six games.After sitting out another pair of games for more precautionary reasons later in the season, Cornish bounced his head off the McMahon Stadium turf Nov. 1. The halfback didnt play in Calgarys regular-season finale as he was put through concussion protocol. Cornish has been back to full practice this week.Eskimos head coach Chris Jones was Torontos defensive co-ordinator when the Argonauts defeated the Stampeders 35-22 in the 2012 Grey Cup. Cornish rushed for 57 yards in the game.The Stampeders went 14-4 last season only to lose 35-13 at home in the West final to eventual Grey Cup champion Saskatchewan. Calgary committed seven turnovers and Cornish mustered 60 yards in the game played in icy temperatures.Sundays forecast is for mostly sunny skies and a high of minus-2, but some snow is expected Saturday. The Calgary and Edmonton offences rank first and second respectively moving the football on the ground, so the run game will be key for both sides.If you look at the last few games that weve lost in the playoffs, we havent been able to set up a good run game, Cornish said.In the last Western final, turnovers just put us down. In the Grey Cup, we were outschemed. (Chris Jones) has a very smart defensive mindset, but its our job to establish our game. Theyre going to do their thing like theyve been saying. Were going to do our thing.Defensive end Charleston Hughes, winner of the CFLs defensive player award in 2013, has been testing his foot in practice this week. Hughes hasnt played since injuring it Sept. 13 during a game against Toronto.One of the obstacles right now is just mentally getting back into the game, Hughes said. Ive been out for two months.I think I can have a big impact in the game as soon as I step on the field. Its one of those things where my presence on the field changes the way a team has to deal with us. Keith Hernandez Jersey . -- Jerry Rice Jr. Jose Reyes Jersey . Carcillo was a little of both for New York in Game 3. Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, Dan Girardi and Carcillo scored goals, leading the Rangers to a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Latvia won a four-man World Cup bobsled race Sunday, while the U.TORONTO -- Matt Bryant hit a 36-yard field goal 3 minutes into overtime to lift the Atlanta Falcons to a 34-31 win over the Bills in Buffalos annual "home" game in Toronto on Sunday. Falcons safety William Moore set up the decisive score in a back-and-fourth game by forcing a fumble on Buffalos second play from scrimmage. He punched the ball out of the arms of Bills tight end Scott Chandler. Cornerback Robert McClain alsso forced a fumble on the Bills final possession of regulation, when he knocked the ball out of the hands of receiver Stevie Johnson at the Falcons 30 with 20 seconds remaining. Tug McGraw Jersey. Steven Jackson scored twice, including the tying 1-yard plunge with 1:28 left for the Falcons (3-9), who snapped a five-game skid and won for the first time in six road games this season. Fred Jackson scored twice for Buffalo (4-8). Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
