WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Jordan Lynch scored on a 1-yard sneak with 3:22 left and the Edmonton Eskimos rallied to beat the Ottawa Redblacks 26-20 on Sunday night for their 14th Grey Cup title.

Lynch, the former Northern Illinois star in his rookie season with Eskimos, scored on a third-down play. Starting quarterback Mike Reilly then threw a 2-point conversion pass to Akeem Shavers.

Reilly was selected the most valuable player of the game. The former Central Washington quarterback was 21 of 35 for 269 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He also ran for 66 yards on 10 carries.

The Eskimos won the Canadian Football League title for the first time since 2005.

The Redblacks advanced to the championship game in their second season in the league. The city’s last CFL championship came in 1976 with the former Rough Riders.
