VANCOUVER - There was a very brief moment Sunday evening when Calgary Stampeders fan Clint Noble thought the Grey Cup was slipping through his teams fingers. Brent Grimes Jersey .It didnt last long — a penalty that nullified a Brandon Banks touchdown late in the game put a welcome end to the drama as the Stampeders defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 20-16 to capture the 102nd Grey Cup at B.C. Place.With 35 seconds left, the stadium erupted in cheers and gasps as Banks returned a punt into the end zone, but an illegal block penalty scuttled the play.When its live, you dont really see it on the replay, so its hard to say if it was legit, Noble, 28 said of the penalty. There were a few calls the other way earlier that were controversial, too.Calgarian Merlin Radke noticed the penalty before Banks had even finished running.I saw the flag drop right away so I kind of sat back and laughed, said Radke, 51.Outside the stadium after the game, Stamps fans were predictably elated, screaming cries of victory and hamming it up for TV news cameras.Some Hamilton supporters were declaring their team had been robbed, but others were more sanguine.Kostas Georgakoulias of Hamilton chalked it up to a tough call for the ref. And besides, he added, if Hamilton had played better, that one play wouldnt have been the difference between winning and losing.To beat Calgary, you have to play a perfect game, said Georgakoulias, who was wearing a hard hat adorned with Tiger-Cats stickers and a black-and-yellow kilt. If we played a perfect game we would have won decisively.What are you going to do?Meanwhile, the Stampeders were so excited while celebrating their win on the field, they broke the trophy.I think Im the one that did it, said Calgary linebacker Juwan Simpson. I dont know. I grabbed it and was excited, and all of a sudden, it got a little (loose.) Some glue and some duct tape and itll be good.Before Grey Cup weekend arrived, there were few signs in Vancouver that a championship football game was about to land in the city. Even in the past few days, outside of official events such as Saturdays parade, only the occasional jersey-clad fan walking along a downtown street provided any indication the Grey Cup was imminent.Just four days before the game, organizers had 4,500 tickets that had yet to be sold. Resale websites were advertising tickets for as low as $49, and several sellers hawking seats along the route to the stadium were simply shouting at passersby to make them an offerThe CFL said attendance for the game was about 52,000, leaving roughly 1,400 seats empty. The stadium appeared to be mostly full outside of the far nose-bleed sections, where small blocks of chairs had no one to sit in them.Vancouver last hosted the big game just three years ago, in 2011, when the B.C. Lions played for — and won — the Cup. Tickets that year sold out months in advance.Even without a home team, the stands were boisterous and rowdy, with loud cheers following touchdowns and significant plays on both sides. Still, geography appeared to give Calgary fans an edge, with chants of Go Stamps Go occasionally erupting in pockets of red jerseys, sometimes with large Stampeders flags flying overhead.B.C.

It was the first time a non-Canadian act has played the Grey Cup halftime show since 2007, when Lenny Kravitz performed at Torontos Rogers Centre.I know that we are visitors to this country, but Canada has always made us feel like were right at home, lead singer Dan Reynolds said between songs.The Grey Cup festivities began Sunday morning at a waterfront plaza next to the cauldron from the 2010 Winter Olympics, where bands and dancers took to the stage before the Grey Cup trophy arrived.Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and Hamilton mayor-elect Fred Eisenberger brought along jerseys from their respective teams, each with the others name.Under the terms of a bet between the two, Eisenberger, who will be sworn in this week, will be wearing the Stampeders jersey during his first council meeting as mayor.Fans who gathered at the Sunday rally represented every team in the league.Large flags with the Calgary Stampeders horse held above the crowd.

Sure, Josh Browns 45-yard field goal on the third drive of overtime lifted the New York Giants to a 23-20 win over Detroit on Sunday. But the Lions (7-8) dropped themselves out of the NFC North race by losing five of their last six games, blowing fourth-quarter leads in each setback. "We put ourselves in a bad, bad situation," linebacker Stephen Tulloch said. "Unfortunately, we cant dig ourselves out of it now." Schwartzs fate might have been sealed with the latest loss, his ninth straight in December or January. "Speculation isnt my job," he said. "Coaching is enough of a job for me." The embattled coach chose to play for overtime by running out the clock with 23 seconds and two timeouts left from the Detroit 25. When the crowd reacted with a chorus of boos, Schwartz turned his head toward the stands and angrily shouted something. Schwartz insisted he wasnt responding to the fans. "Thats a tough situation when your players are getting booed," he said. "You want to keep them fired up and thats what I was trying to do." Detroit needed some help to stay in post-season contention and got it when Pittsburgh won at Green Bay. The Packers loss turned out to be moot because the lowly Lions fell to put them out of the playoffs for the 13th time in 14 years. The Giants (6-9) overcame Eli Mannings interception late in regulation and Andre Browns fumble on the opening possession in overtime to win for the second time in five games. With nothing to lose, New York went on fourth-and-7 from the Lions 42 and Manning connected with Jerrel Jernigan on a 15-yard pass to set up the winning kick. Schwartz didnt call a timeout that mightve led to a video review that couldve potentially overturned the low reception. "I guess he made a catch," Manning said. "They called it a catch." To avoid a potential review, the Giants quickly snapped the ball and gave tight end Bear Pascoe his first NFL rushing attempt. "Had to make a few adjustments there," Manning recalled. Manning was 23 of 42 for 256 yards with a TD pass to Jernigan — his first career score — and an NFL-high 26th interception. Matthew Stafford was worse: 25 of 42 for 222 yards and two interceptions, the second was returned by Will Hill for a TD that tied it at 20 with 4:57 left in the lacklustre game. Ali Marpet Jersey. Stafford threw high and wide of 6-foot-7 tight end Joseph Fauria, who had to leap just to get his hands on the errant pass. "We have had back-to-back heartbreakers at home with games decided by field goals," said Stafford, who was also lamenting last Monday nights loss to Baltimore on Justin Tuckers 61-yard kick in the final minute. Calvin Johnson, questionable for the game because of an injured right knee, wasnt the targeted receiver once after making three catches for 43 yards in the first half. "His knee was bothering him, and his ankle was a problem," Schwartz said. "We were trying to use him in the red zone and on third downs, but he wasnt close to 100 per cent." Staffords first interception and Reggie Bushs career-high fourth fumble in the first half let the offensively challenged Giants take a 13-3 lead at halftime. Mannings 20-yard pass to Jernigan gave the Giants a 10-3 lead after Bushs fumble. Jernigan, a third-year receiver, took advantage of more playing time with Victor Cruz out after having left knee surgery Thursday. Detroit cornerback Bill Bentley was beaten by Jernigan on the play and hit by safety Louis Delmas, who gave his teammate a concussion. Browns season-long 52-yard field goal put New York ahead by double digits with 9 seconds left in the half. The kick came two snaps after Lions safety Don Carey got a delay-of-game penalty. Detroits Jeremy Ross returned the first punt of the second half 50 yards to set up a 1-yard TD run by Joique Bell to make it 13-10. Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley sacked Manning in the end zone to pull the Lions within a point late in the third quarter. Detroit went ahead for the first time on the ensuing possession. Rookie running back Theo Riddick ran for a 2-yard TD and Fauria caught a pass for a 2-point conversion to give the Lions a 20-13 lead. The Lions, though, blew it — and their chance to possibly win their first division title since 1993. NOTES: Schwartzs skid in December and January is at least twice as long as any other active streak and is the leagues longest since Herm Edwards (from 2007-08) and Jim Haslett (from 2005-08) both lost nine in a row during those months. ... Giants guard David Diehl (knee) was inactive and his replacement, rookie Brandon Mosley, left with a broken hand in the first quarter.
