MONTREAL -- Drew Willy made his debut as a starter after looking good in relief of the injured Darian Durant in consecutive wins over Winnipeg and he didn't look out of place against veteran Anthony Calvillo on the other sideline.
Composed for the entire contest, the former University of Buffalo star threw some fluttery balls, but completed 22-of-35 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown to RB Kory Sheets.
"There were some throws I missed that I usually make that I'm not real happy about, but there were some good things and bad things," said Willy. "We could have won that game.
"We stalled on a few drives and it really hurt us. There were a couple there that I've just got to make."
Whether Willy starts again next Sunday when the Riders play host to Calgary depends on how quickly Durant recovers from a hip injury.
