Bishop's three TD passes help Argonauts crush Stampeders

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:09 PM TORONTO (Ticker) -- Michael Bishop threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns as the Toronto Argonauts posted a 48-15 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Thursday.

Bishop completed 18-of-23 passes and tossed two interceptions, and the defense forced nine turnovers for Toronto (2-1), which won its seventh straight home meeting with Calgary.

Bishop threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Andre Talbot at the 7:33 mark of the first period to give the Argonauts a 7-0 lead. His third TD pass, a 14-yard toss to Arland Bruce III with 1:27 left in the half, gave Toronto a 27-0 halftime bulge.

Safety Orlondo Steinauer had three interceptions and linebacker Kevin Eiben picked off a pass and had two fumble recoveries for the Argonauts, whose defense did not allow a TD for the second straight game. Thirty-eight of Toronto's points were a result of turnovers by Calgary.

Bishop left the game with an undisclosed injury early in the third quarter after a scramble to the Stampeders' 1-yard line. He was taken to a local hospital for further examination and was replaced by backup Mike McMahon, who was 6-of-13 for 88 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

Henry Burris (13-of-27, 164 yards) and backup Akili Smith (6-of-10, 68 yards) combined to throw five interceptions for Calgary (1-2), which was crushed for the second straight game. The Stampeders lost, 49-8, to the Saskatchewan Roughriders last Sunday.
