The champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers have a new address after last Sunday’s Grey Cup victory.

WINNIPEG — An offensive line moving like a juggernaut to drive Winnipeg’s ground game got a lot of credit from coaches and players alike after an important 35-24 win by the Blue Bombers over the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday.
