  • Johnny Manziel much improved as Alouettes fall late to Redblacks

In his second game as starting quarterback for the Montreal Alouettes, Manziel's team lost 24-17 to the host Ottawa Redblacks before 25,161 at TD Place.

The fleet-footed quarterback, now wearing Alouette colours following his trade from Hamilton, rushed for 18 yards to the edge of the Redblacks goal line midway through the third quarter in Ottawa, where the ball was fumbled after a heavy hit but recovered by Kristian Matte for Montreal to take a 17-11 lead.

Campbell also reflected on his decision to go for the touchdown at the end of the second half rather than kicking a field goal.

He preached the team isn't focusing on wins and losses right now, but instead on the process. "We're a lot closer than we were a week ago and if we continue to make those strides, we'll be OK". It was good we were able to step up.

Montreal is 1-7 this season and has won just once in 19 games going back a year. "This is a 5-3 team with some work to do".

Despite his strong numbers, Harris made some mistakes. He threw a second-quarter interception Chris Ackie returned for a touchdown.

Ward's record-breaking attempt came after he made a 33-yarder earlier in the fourth to cut Montreal's lead to 17-14.

Harris threw his first touchdown of the game in the third quarter, a 14-yard strike to R.J. Harris.

The lone point scored by either team in a turnover-filled first quarter came after Montreal's Bede booted a 57-yard punt into the Ottawa end zone for a single. The Alouettes were up 9-5 at the half.

The Redblacks head to Winnipeg to play the Blue Bombers (5-3) on Friday, while the Alouettes are in Edmonton to take on the Eskimos (5-3) next Saturday.
