Ticats remain unbeaten at Tim Hortons Field

HAMILTON, Ont.—The Winnipeg Blue Bombers bring out the best in Emanuel Davis.
Davis returned two interceptions for touchdowns yesterday afternoon as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats beat Winnipeg 38-8 to remain unbeaten at Tim Hortons Field. Davis has returned three interceptions for TDs this season and all have come against the Bombers.
Davis had a 35-yard interception return TD in Hamilton’s 52-26 road win over Winnipeg on July 2.
What’s more, his two TD performance came on his 26th birthday but the four-year veteran shouldn’t expect anything special from Ticats receiver Bakari Grant.
“He already got his presents,” Grant said, referring to Davis’s two TDs. “I’ll take that for a birthday gift.”
Hamilton head coach/GM Kent Austin deadpanned that maybe he should consider trying to cash in on Davis’s brilliance.
“I told him after the game I have to take him to Vegas,” Austin said with a chuckle. “And it was on his birthday which was really awesome.
“I’m really proud of that young man.”
Davis downplayed his accomplishment, saying he was the recipient of a Hamilton pass rush that made life miserable for Winnipeg quarterbacks, registering seven sacks.
