REGINA -- If Kerry Josephs playing career is in fact over, hell have many highlights to look back on -- the end of a 4-14 season among them. Stephen Paea Jersey . Joseph, in his 11th year as a CFL quarterback, played the final 10 minutes Saturday as the Edmonton Eskimos ended their season with a 30-26 win over Josephs former team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders. "I can say if I dont ever put the uniform on again or lace another cleat up I won my last game," he said, his voice cracking and eyes moist. "Not everybody can say that. It wasnt a championship game but I can say I won my last one. And its a lot of emotion." Joseph finished two-for-three passing for 29 yards. He acknowledged that his time in Edmonton as a player is "probably" over, and it had been widely speculated in the lead-up to the game that it would be his last in the CFL. Joseph added that he will continue looking for opportunities to play over the next month but that he feels he has a lot to offer as a coach too if he decides to retire. The last time Joseph wore a Roughriders uniform he was celebrating a win in the 2007 Grey Cup. In the aftermath of Saturdays game, he was pondering the possibility of history repeating itself. "This fanbase has been another home to me," said Joseph, who played two seasons for the Riders before unexpectedly being traded to Toronto before the 2008 season and eventually moving on to Edmonton. "Theyve been great to me all the way back to 2006 and from the time I first walked on the field here. "This could be fitting to come back here." The turning point for the Eskimos came when Jamal Miles returned a punt 79 yards for a touchdown with barely a minute to play. Saskatchewan punter Ricky Schmitts kick drove Edmonton back to its own 31-yard line but Miles found a seam and sprinted down the sideline for the winning score. On the Roughriders previous drive, they were stuffed four times on first-and-goal and opted to settle for a field goal instead of trying once more for the end zone. Edmonton (4-14) ended a difficult regular season by sending the Roughriders (11-7) into the playoffs on a two-game losing streak with the win. The defeat also cost Saskatchewan its first 12-win season since 2008 as the Riders prepare to host the B.C. Lions in the CFLs West Division semifinal. For Edmonton the win meant little more than avoiding a new benchmark for the second-worst season in franchise history. "Its real hard to keep the guys hungry when you know what you already have next week," said Riders head coach Corey Chamblin. "I hate to use the word meaningless because its not ... but in total it was pretty hard to get the guys in the mindset of Hey, lets go do all-out." With both teams resting a number of starters, the game featured another characteristically slow start from the Roughriders, who trailed 10-0 before Chris Milo kicked a 23-yard field goal near the end of the first quarter. Edmonton raced out to the early lead on a 25-yard field goal from Grant Shaw and a 56-yard interception return from middle linebacker Rennie Curran. Currans pick was the first of the year thrown by Saskatchewan quarterback Drew Willy, who started his second game of 2013 in place of starter Darian Durant. Willy was looking for Weston Dressler on a crossing route over the middle and threw the ball straight into the hands of Curran, who was cutting the other way. Saskatchewan tied the game at 10 late in the second quarter on a six-yard TD pass from Willy to Eron Riley, who started the game in place of injured slotback Chris Getzlaf. A 40-yard field goal from Shaw made it 13-10 Edmonton at the half. Willy left the game at halftime 15-of-22 passing for 157 yards, giving way to third-stringer Tino Sunseri for the second half. Sunseri finished the game 14 of 18 for 167 yards. Milo made it 13-13 on an 11-yard field goal in the third quarter and Shaw replied with a 25-yarder of his own to restore Edmontons three-point lead. The Roughriders took their first lead of the game after Craig Butler picked Edmonton backup QB Jonathan Crompton and returned the ball to the Eskimos 28-yard line. Sunseri threw a 20-yard pass to Rob Bagg and Chris Garrett, who started at tailback in place of Kory Sheets, ran eight yards on the next play for the score. Crompton returned fire on the next drive, culminating in a 12-yard TD throw to John White and a 23-20 lead. Milo maintained his perfect performance with field goals of 22 and eight yards in the final quarter but it wasnt enough. The Eskimos started the game with Mike Reilly at quarterback. He was replaced early in the third quarter by Crompton, who then gave way to Joseph for the home stretch. "Just his leadership and his faith has been huge for me to look up to," Eskimos receiver Nate Coehoorn said of Joseph. "Just the way he handles himself as a pro, hes just a rock. Hes just that guy in meetings you can always ask a question. Hes almost like a player-coach ... he knows everything." Reilly finished the game 5 of 12 for 50 yards. Crompton was two of four for 33 yards. A small consolation to the Riders came with 13 seconds to go when Taj Smith caught a nine-yard pass from Sunseri, putting him over 1,000 yards receiving for the season and making 2013 the first year since 1993 that Saskatchewan has had three 1,000 yard receivers in a season. Dressler and Getzlaf had reached that milestone earlier this year. Saskatchewan meets B.C. Sunday with the winner advancing to face Calgary in the West Division final. "Its a brand new season," said Chamblin. "The only thing that matters to me is every game I expect that were going to be able to win, regardless of whos healthy. "Like I told the guys there are some good things that we did this season. This team is greatly improved from last year in a number of areas and things that weve done. I think thats what we have to look at." DeMarcus Ware Jersey .A. Happ? Happs seven wins are second on the staff to Mark Buehrles 10. Win-loss record is an antiquated stat, sure, but win total is generally an indication of a pitchers ability to work deep into games, enough to be personally affected by the result. Cole Beasley Jersey . Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Fiorentina levelled on aggregate in the 14th minute when Joaquin Sanchez Rodriguez headed back a long ball from David Pizarro and Pasqual smashed home an angled volley. http://www.thecowboysfansmall.com/c-78-cowboys-nolan-carroll-jersey.aspx . The Austrian ski federation said Morgenstern was "conscious and well responsive" and his condition would be monitored in the intensive care unit of a Salzburg hospital for the next 72 hours. The federation said it was "way too early" to judge Morgensterns chances of competing in Sochi, and that an update on his condition was not expected before Monday.CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia has had season-ending left shoulder surgery. The White Sox said doctors at Rush Oak Park Hospital on Tuesday repaired a torn labrum and avulsion fracture in Garcias left shoulder. The 22-year-old Garcia was injured when he attempted a diving catch on Aprril 9 at Colorado. Tony Romo Jersey. Garcia is expected to be ready for the start of spring training next season, without any restrictions. Garcia was batting .267 with two home runs, four RBIs and six runs in eight games this season. He had his first career multihomer game the day before getting hurt.
