CALGARY - Their careers intertwined as Calgary Stampeders teammates. Mike Palmateer Jersey . On Saturday, the paths of Drew Tate and Kevin Glenn cross again as opposing quarterbacks. Their backstory is of Tate the prodigy forced by injuries to give way to Glenn, the insurance policy that paid off with 20 wins and a Grey Cup appearance during his two seasons as a Stampeder. You can watch the two face off on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 and TSN GO at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt, or listen to the game live on TSN 1040 and tsnradiovancouver.ca as Scott Rintoul and Giulio Caravatta have the PxP call. Pregame coverage on TSN1040 begins at 4:30pm pt. with Bob The Moj Marjanovich and Chris Burns. Claimed in the expansion draft by Ottawa and traded to the B.C. Lions to start this season, Glenn continues to be a well-worked, winning backup to Travis Lulay, who re-injured his shoulder in his one start this season. Glenn ranks third in throwing yards with 2,703 behind Torontos Ricky Ray (3,206) and Winnipegs Drew Willy (2,977). With Bo Levi Mitchell a week away from returning for Calgary, Tate will get his second straight start this season and just the 10th of his career Saturday. Tate, 29, and Glenn, 35, are in different stages of their careers in terms of experience. Tate is the developing quarterback still trying to get games under his belt. With the amount of work hes had in recent years, it feels like the CFL is trying to eke every last game out of Glenn before he retires. The quarterbacks have different strengths. Tate is a scrambler who can turn trouble into a touchdown. Glenns smarts and patience in the pocket gives the offence time to develop. But Tate feels some of Glenns game rubbed off on him during their time as teammates. There was a lot I learned from Kevin on the field and off the field, Tate said Friday. My locker was right next to him so there was just a lot of insight he could give to me personally, professionally. He had great poise. He had a quick release on a quick game and had good pocket awareness and good poise to let things develop downfield. Hes smaller than me which is probably the only quarterback Ive ever seen shorter than me. It was neat to see him work and just how he approaches the games and how he is in the huddle and in the locker room. Glenn, who is five foot 10 to Tates six feet, says even though he has more experience than Tate, there was still something to learn from the younger quarterback. Im never too proud to say that Ive learned something from a guy who may not have as many years in the league as me, Glenn said. I respect the fire that he has. To be able to overcome some of those injuries he had, it was tough. To have that injury-plagued (label) hanging over your head and still be able to come back and be positive and successful. Hes the type of guy that believes he can overcome and do anything. Its one of those things that you may have inside of you, but it never comes out because you may have never been put in that situation. Calgary (10-2) lost 31-15 to Montreal last Sunday, but still owns the best record in the CFL. The Lions (7-5) are fourth in the West Division, six points back of Calgary and coming off a 40-23 loss to Toronto. The Lions are the only West Division team to defeat Calgary and the only team to beat the Stamps at home so far this season. Trailing 11 points at halftime, B.C. rallied to edge the hosts 25-24 back on Aug. 1. Stampeders running back Jon Cornish didnt play in that game. He missed six games in July and August with concussion symptoms. The CFLs Most Outstanding Player and leading rusher last season also didnt travel to Montreal last week. Cornish will be back in the lineup Saturday. Hed been cagey about his reasons for staying home from Montreal. Cornish revealed Friday that he landed on his head and felt his neck lock up in a 40-33 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Sept. 13. I was being cautious, Cornish said. Cornish rushed for a CFL single-game high of 174 yards against Toronto. With six games remaining, the 29-year-old from New Westminster, B.C., ranks fourth in league rushing with 587 yards in five games. The Calgary and B.C. defences are coming off their worst games of the season, but Cornish says the Lions still pose a stiff challenge. B.C. middle linebacker Solomon Elimimian leads the CFL in tackles with 98. Theyre one of the premier defences in the league and I always relish every opportunity I get to play against them, Cornish said. I get to improve as a player, playing against their players. Calgarys defence was averaging 15 points per game against in the first 10 games of the season, but allowed 33 and 31 the last two games respectively. Technically were doing good things, said Stampeders defensive co-ordinator Rich Stubler. We just have to play with more passion and get the job done. Hopefully we have our mojo back and we go back and do the things we do well. Tate completed Calgarys comeback win against Toronto with 6-for-6 passing, two touchdown throws and a two-point convert pass. He ran for two touchdowns against Montreal, but completed half his 30 passes for 152 yards. The return of Cornish gives the Texan a weapon the quarterback didnt have last week. He definitely will make a difference so find a way to get him the ball and make sure its a clean handoff every time, Tate said. I definitely felt I took a step forward in practice this week so I want to continue that into the game. Its really just getting the ball to the playmakers in space. Dont turn the ball over and have a good run game. We do all those things, we should be all right. Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys . Every once in awhile, it seems like life lets dreams become real - and that is a gift. Nazem Kadri Jersey .Y. -- Scott Chandler is returning to Buffalo, where he spent the past three seasons establishing himself as the Bills top pass-catching tight end.PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly doesnt plan to get caught in a trap.So the words Dallas and Cowboys have not been mentioned as his team prepares to host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.After a 53-20 blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, and with the NFC East showdown Thanksgiving Day in Dallas, it might be easy for the Eagles (7-3) to look past a struggling Titans team from the other conference.Kelly wont let it happen.No, Kelly said Friday. No. 1, I dont believe in trap games. I think everybody knows in this league, everybody can beat anybody on any given day. There are a million examples of it, and I think its. . . it doesnt help anybody if youre looking for one team to go to the next game. The great thing about our league is you only have to play one game a week, so our focus and attention is on the one game we have this week.Former Eagles head coaches, most recently Andy Reid, would have some assistants look ahead when his team had a Thursday game coming up to get a jumpstart on the opponent. Thats not second-year head coach Kellys style.No, Kelly said about working ahead. Weve had this mapped out. We know exactly what were going to do on Sunday (after the Titans game). Well come right back in as coaches and get working on the game plan and be here all night.Then our players will come back in on Monday and well train on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and get ready for the game. So we have the formula. Were not doing anything in terms of showing players film (on Dallas) or anything like that. Our attention, and sole attention, is on the Tennessee Tittans. Nikita Zaitsev Jersey. agles players are buying into Kellys thinking. The defence is concentrating on rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger and rookie running back Bishop Sankey, not Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray. Not yet.Were all about Tennessee, Eagles safety Nate Allen said. Dallas is a week away. Well worry about that game after the Tennessee game. You cant afford to look ahead. Thats how you get in trouble.Its up to us to bounce back from last weeks game, take care of our business, here at home, and then in a quick turnaround get ready for the next game.Tennessee comes in at 2-8, a loser of four straight and eight of nine. The Titans rank 31st in overall offence and in run defence.Kellys coaches, like himself, dont want to forget the Titans.Thats next weeks question, right? offensive co-ordinator Pat Shurmur said when asked how he deals with a Sunday-Thursday turnaround. No, were working solely on Tennessee. We know, as coaches, we have what are considered four-day weeks. Last week we had a six-day week. But the bottom line its who do you play this week, and for us thats Tennessee.NOTES: Only quarterback Nick Foles (broken collarbone) was ruled out for Sundays game. The Eagles do list eight players as probable on their final injury report: defensive end Brandon Bair (elbow), cornerback Brandon Boykin (hamstring), centre Jason Kelce (thumb), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf, hamstring), wide receivers Jordan Matthews (knee) and Jeff Maehl (foot), safety Chris Maragos (groin) and guard Matt Tobin (concussion).___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
