CALGARY -- A young quarterback led his team to a CFL win Saturday, while one of the Canadian games greats continued to struggle. Third-string quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell led the Stampeders to an enormous rally on Saturday as Calgary stormed back from a 24-point deficit for a 38-27 victory over the Montreal Alouettes. "My mindset when I went in -- we just made the comeback -- was dont let the offence sputter," said the 23-year-old Mitchell, a second-year pro from Eastern Washington University. "We had to make sure we went out there and got a couple of touchdowns and get ahead in this game." The Alouettes suffered their third straight loss under new head coach Dan Hawkins and are 1-3. The Stampeders improved to 3-1. Jon Cornish scored a pair of second-half touchdowns and Mitchell led two drives after coming on for starter Kevin Glenn, who injured his right elbow in the third quarter. Mitchell finished with a pair of TD passes on 7-of-13 throwing for 49 yards. He also had a 26-yard run. Glenn was starting for the second straight week in place of Drew Tate, who strained a muscle in his right arm in a loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders July 5. Mitchell came on when Glenn was rocked by Aaron Lavaris when delivering a 45-yard pass to Marquay McDaniel. Glenn didnt appear too hurt after the contest. "I never got the strength back in it," he said. "I felt the way the game was going it was best if Bo went in and gave us a spark." It looked like Montreal was going to take out its offensive frustration on the Stampeders after back-to-back losses at home, including a 22-14 loss to Calgary last week. The normally explosive Anthony Calvillo-led Montreal offence scored only 11 points in a defeat at the hands of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers the week before that. The Alouettes put up three touchdowns and a field goal to open up a 24-0 lead after one quarter. Drives of 82 and 79 yards were capped off by Brandon Whitakers two-yard scoring run and S.J. Greens catch-and-run for a 59-yard score. Jerome Messam ran in from four yards. That was most of the Alouettes offence, though. Calvillo was 9-of-13 for 167 in the first half but 9-of-17 for 76 in the second. "Its frustrating when youre losing, especially when everyone is playing so hard," said Calvillo, who turns 41 in August. "We did solid out there in the first quarter but after that . . . . Im not saying we went back to our old ways, but we were inconsistent. I cant tell you why, but today thats the way it was for whatever reason." Calgary woke up and dominated after the first quarter, during which they only had 23 total yards. Mitchell, who saw spot duty in the game before Glenns injury, lobbed a one-yard TD pass to Tim St. Pierre. Glenn found Nik Lewis with a five-yard strike and Rene Parades kicked field goals of 27 and 41 yards to close the gap to 24-19 at the break. The Stampeders took the lead for good with 4:57 left in the third quarter. Mitchell found Cornish with an 11-yard scoring pass to finish off a 89-yard drive for a 28-24 advantage. The Alouettes looked like they would get the lead back on the ensuing kickoff. Noel Devine was about to cross the Calgary goal-line on the return but Fred Bennett punched the ball loose and it was recovered in the end zone by Alvin Bowen. "It was the play of the game," said Stampeders head coach John Hufnagel. "That was a 14-point swing. It took seven points off their board and we got the ball at the 25 and marched down for a touchdown. "It was kind of an indication of our team in this game. No matter how bad it looked we played to the last whistle and never gave up." The Stampeders indeed drove again right away and Cornish ran in his second touchdown from 21 yards out. Cornish finished with 109 yards on 11 rushing attempts. Paredes finished with four field goals to close to within one of tying B.C. Lions Paul McCallum for the CFL record of 30 consecutive regular season field goals. His tying attempt from 35 yards with 1:04 to go was blocked by John Bowman. It doesnt count as a missed field goal, but is considered a fumble. NOTES - Scratches for Calgary were linebackers Jonathan Hefney and Yannick Carter, receiver Maurice Price and offensive lineman Spencer Wilson . . . Out for Montreal were receiver Tyson Carrier, offensive lineman Anthony Barrette, defensive tackle Moton Hopkins and defensive end Bo Adebayo. . .

Cheap Shoes From China . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Ryan Fitzpatrick is ready for the regular season.No, the New York Jets starting offense didnt exactly light it up during the preseason. That doesnt mean the veteran quarterback is worried.Yeah, Fitzpatrick said sternly, theres not much concern about any of that.With the starters, Fitzpatrick went 16 of 29 for 183 yards with one touchdown, no interceptions and a lost fumble in three games.There were also a few errant passes mixed in and not much resembling the offense that finished 10th overall in the NFL last season, led by Fitzpatricks franchise-record 31 touchdown passes.But then again, its still just the preseason. Right?I think were ready to move on and get going for the regular season, Fitzpatrick said after practice Monday.Just to get everybody out there and have everybody healthy and going for the start of the season, I think was goal No. 1 and I think well be there. So thats important. But Im excited to see whats to come for us on offense.Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey kept things pretty vanilla during the first three preseason games for his starting unit. Thats no surprise there, but the fact the offense struggled at times and Fitzpatrick didnt appear particularly sharp had some fans and media wondering if his contract situation is partly to blame.Because Fitzpatrick didnt re-sign until just before training camp began, he got no time on the field or in the classroom with any of his teammates during the offseason program. He has been working all summer to get back in synch with Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and the rest of the playmakers on offense.With Fitzpatrick in against the Giants, the Jets six drives went: punt, fumble, punt, punt, punt, touchdown to Eric Decker.We didnt score as much, but I thought they worked themselves out of some jams, coach Todd Bowles said. We moved the ball a little bit and got stalled in the first drive. The biggest thing, you dont like the turnovers.Bowles was encouraged by the fact that there were mistakes made that can be corrected before the games really count.Fitzpatrick said the team has already begun some of its preparation for the Bengals, while also preparing for the preseason finale at Philadelphia on Thursday night.dddddddddddd. Most of the starters, Fitzpatrick included, wont be playing in that one, though.Its kind of a tough balancing act right now, Fitzpatrick said. Sometimes you can watch too much tape. So you want to prepare, but weve got some extra time after Thursday and Friday, that weve got that weekend and the next week, extra practice the next week. So we dont need to go crazy on Cincy, but its definitely something were already looking at.The addition of running back Matt Forte could be a huge boost to Fitzpatrick and the offense because of his pass-catching ability out of the backfield. Hes two years removed from setting an NFL record for running backs with 102 catches.He got some work in against the Giants after missing the first two preseason games while recovering from a hamstring injury. Forte finished with 28 yards on 10 carries and had two catches for 9 yards.Weve got some stuff we can build on from last year, Fitzpatrick said. Weve added a couple different pieces and just the creativity and the things that Chan is going to be able to do. Stuff that we havent really done in the preseason or practice much in training camp that hell kind of think of. And when we get into this game-planning mode, thats when the stuff gets really exciting.While Fitzpatrick will be watching the preseason finale from the sideline, Bowles is still determining whether all three of the other quarterbacks play against the Eagles.Geno Smith is currently the No. 2 quarterback, but could play a series or two. Bowles might opt to see more from Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, a second-rounder who was 6 of 16 for 105 yards with a touchdown and an interception in his NFL debut.I havent decided whether I want to play three or play two, Bowles said. Going forward, well talk about it as a coaching staff and we havent talked about it yet. We still have some days to go.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
