Regina, SK. -Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Darian Durant has had his fair share of detractors over the years. Even in a year where he was named the CFL’s Western Division all-star quarterback and led the CFL in touchdown passes, there are some who wonder if Durant has what it takes to be the on-field leader of this team. I'ts gotten so bad that on Twitter, some have started using the hashtag “Darian’s fault” when saying something out of his control has gone wrong. On Sunday night, the Rider quarterback answered his critics and then some as he brought his “A” game to the table when the team needed him most and as a result, they are one win away from being in the 101st Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium.

Next up for the Riders is the Western Final at Calgary against the Stampeders, on Sunday, November 17th. Kickoff on 620CKRM, 620ckrm.com, the Rider Radio Network, TSN and NBCSN is set for 4:30pm EST.
