Winnipeg quarterback Michael Bishop was intercepted by Ticats linebacker Markeith Knowlton, who ran 35 yards for the TD at 8:28 of the fourth quarter to make the score 29-16.
After the touchdown, Knowlton, Tyler Smith, Geoff Tisdale, Chris Thompson, Jamall Johnson, Jykine Bradley and Otis Floyd piled into a boat near the end zone. One player pretended he was fishing, while another mimicked being in a pedal boat.
The loss eliminated Winnipeg from playoff contention.
