MONTREAL - The Montreal Alouettes storied past will be feted but a reminder of their mortality awaits on the field when they face the first-place Calgary Stampeders. You can catch all the action live on TSN 1, 3, 4, 5 and on TSN 690 live at 1pm et/10am pt. The Alouettes (3-Cool host Calgary (10-1) in the Hall of Fame game Sunday afternoon at Percival Molson Stadium. Three former Alouettes — receiver Ben Cahoon, offensive tackle Uzooma Okeke and linebacker/punter Wally Buono, now the B.C. Lions vice-president and GM — are among seven wholl be inducted in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame this weekend. "The good thing is were at home and hopefully we can feed off the crowd and the Hall of Fame game and keep it simple, get first downs and then rely on our defence and get a win," said Alouettes offensive lineman Josh Bourke. Buono won three Grey Cups as Calgarys head coach from 1990 to 2002 so the Stampeders will have some of their own history at the game as well. Calgary beat Montreal 29-8 in the season opener for both teams June 28 at McMahon Stadium. But the Stampeders will be minus some key pieces in the rematch, including quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, running back Jon Cornish, receiver Marquay McDaniel and rush end Charleston Hughes. All were injured in last weeks 40-33 victory over the Toronto Argonauts, a game that saw Calgary rally from a 26-point deficit. But the Stampeders offence didnt miss a beat in the second half when Drew Tate went in after Mitchell suffered knee and ankle injuries. Cornish rushed for 174 yards in that game wont play Sunday due to nagging injuries unrelated to the concussion that forced him to miss time in July and August. The Alouettes dont expect their opponents to be very much different from usual, however. "They had some injuries last week and their quarterbacks banged up, but Drew Tate has a lot of experience in the CFL so its not going to get any easier," said Bourke. "They do a good job of rolling the next guy in if someone goes down. "They always have quality backups. So its going to be a challenge." The Stampeders lead the CFL in scoring (332 points), touchdowns (34), first downs (239) and net yards gained (4,083). Montreal, whose offence stalled this season with the retirement of all-time passing leader Anthony Calvillo, leads only the expansion Ottawa Redblacks in those categories. Calvillo, whose No. 13 jersey will be retired later this season, was the kingpin of Montreal teams on which Cahoon and Okeke both flourished. The diminutive Cahoon was Calvillos most trusted receiver with 1,017 career catches for 13,301 yards. "He had amazing hands but the thing that comes to mind is toughness," receiver Eric Deslauriers said of 42-year-old Cahoon, who retired in 2011. "Hed catch about 15 balls a game and I think he got lit up 14 times a game. "He always found a way to get hit hard, but hed just bounce back up. He was probably the strongest receiver in the lineup and he was about 175 pounds." Okeke, 44, joined Montreal in 1996 and was a six-time CFL all-star before retiring in 2006. He is now the teams football operations assistant and a scout. Buono won two Cups as an Alouette from 1972 to 1981. He went on to post a record 254 regular-season wins as a coach in Calgary and B.C. He will go into the Hall as a builder. Alouettes coach Tom Higgins faced Buono, both as a player and coach. "Three well deserved nominations," said Higgins. Also to be inducted are former Ottawa offensive lineman and kicker Moe Racine, running backs Charles Roberts and Neil Lumsden and former Western Mustangs head coach Larry Haylor. The unveiling of the busts will be held Saturday with the inductees will honoured Sunday at the game. But the game has plenty of importance for Montreal, which enters weekend action tied for first in the East with Hamilton and Toronto. Still, its a strange position for the Alouettes to be in given the franchise has traditionally been a conference powerhouse, appearing in eight Grey Cup games since its relocation from Baltimore in 1996. Buono was a part of the franchises greatness before 96 while both Cahoon and Okeke were integral members of its success following its return. "In my mind, the beasts of the East are always here," said Deslauriers, who will sit out with an injury. "I still think we can get there. "We are getting better and were doing the right things. Its maybe not the best season for the Montreal Alouettes, but were still working hard every day to get to where we need to be and where we used to be." New England Patriots Store .

Andersons arrival and Virgil Greens return.Anderson, the Broncos second-year, third-string running back, has made the most of his opportunity with Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Montee Ball (groin) hurt.Since taking over as the primary running back three weeks ago, Anderson has averaged 5.8 yards a carry and 11.7 yards a catch. He had 167 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries in Denvers win over Miami last week.He caught his first TD pass against Oakland, a 51-yard masterpiece on a screen play that sparked Denvers rout of the Raiders and he scored his first career rushing TD against the Dolphins.C.J. is taking advantage of his opportunity, Peyton Manning said. I think his knowledge of the offence has a lot to do with how fast hes able to play. When I say fast, hes not thinking a lot back there. He knows the protections and he knows the pass patterns. He feels good about the run plays and the cuts on where to go. When youre thinking a lot back there and not exactly sure what to do, you just dont play as fast.Running backs coach Eric Studesville said he sometimes has to act like a teacher admonishing his star student not to blurt out all the answers when he quizzes his running backs.That is a real credit to him for being a real student of the game in his short time here, Manning said. So were calling all the same plays, if not more, with him in there and its allowed him to run the ball well and catch the ball well and really make some plays and really make a lot of guys miss.Andersons addition in the backfield has given the Broncos (8-3) a running threat to go with Mannings passing prowess: Last week Denver achieved perfect balance — 35 runs, 35 throws — and while that will be hard to repeat, it gives the Broncos an unpredictability that had been missing.This team has good flexibility, Manninng said.ddddddddddddManning has enjoyed watching No. 22 leaving linemen and linebackers in the dust after so many of Denvers runs were thwarted in the backfield over the first half of the season.In the first two months, the Broncos had 33 runs that went for no gain or negative yardage and theyve only had seven such runs since Anderson took over, including just one loss of yards in 35 runs last week.Helping out the ground game is the return of Green, whose three-game absence with a strained calf coincided with the revamped O-lines nosedive that led to heavy criticism last week.It was really good to get him back, Manning said. Hes one of our tough guys on this team and it was killing him not to play due to his injury. It was good for him to get back out there. It allows us to do more things from a personnel standpoint and formations.Im going to get him that first touchdown pass. Im going to do it. Were going to do it. Its just a matter of time. So, were on a mission.Both Green and Anderson bring a physical style to the Broncos offence.Hes itching to hit somebody. And thats Virg, Anderson said. He likes going out there and playing physical. And thats what we need in this run game. And my running style is physical. So, hopefully it just builds up this offence.Anderson said he believes Green could be a factor in the passing game, too.Green sounds as though hed be happy to just keep hitting guys, though.I missed it. Outrageously, I missed it, Green said.Notes: LB Brandon Marshall (concussion) didnt practice Thursday but did go through stretching. If hes out Sunday night at Kansas City, the Broncos would turn to a rotation of LBs, including Steven Johnson, rookies Lamin Barrow and Corey Nelson and newcomer Todd Davis. ... TE Julius Thomas (ankle, limited) returned to practice for the first time since getting hurt Nov. 16 at St. Louis.___AP NFL website: and ' ' '
