Preseason pro football games are generally, in a word, weird.

And the inaugural Northern Kickoff in Fort McMurray on Saturday night between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Edmonton Eskimos really was no different. In a way, it was weirder than most.

Spencer Moore ready for key 3rd season with Riders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are looking for big things from fullback Spencer Moore in 2015. 

The Hamilton, Ont. product appears to be getting his chance to start in his third season. 

"This being my third year here, it's definitely going to be a big year for me," said Moore.

VIDEO: Riders drop pre-season opener 31-24

June 14, 2015 - 1:16am Updated: November 17, 2016 - 3:46pm

The Saskatchewan Roughriders' first game of 2015 ended much like their last game of 2014 did, with a loss to the Edmonton Eskimos.

Unlike last year's Western Semifinal in Edmonton, this 31-24 loss doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.
