Stamps secure Canadian Football League playoff spot

The Saskatchewan Riders had more turnovers than a French bakery and couldn't put a single point on the board in the second half.
As a result, the Calgary Stampeders won the CFL game 29-21 at Taylor Field Sunday afternoon and have clinched a playoff spot in the West Division.
Calgary's record is now 9-7. Saskatchewan slips to 8-9.
The sold-out game before a crowd of 28,800 was dubbed the Burris Bowl, marking as it did the return of former Riders pivot Henry Burris, who sent shock waves through the football-crazy province when he signed with the Stamps in March.
Calgary and Burris also came out ahead in their first match-up against Saskatchewan earlier in the season.
The Riders aren't out of playoff contention yet. Whether they advance may depend on the outcome of their final game against the B.C. Lions on Nov. 5.
