Grey Cup playoffs

The Montreal Alouettes are the 1977 Grey Cup champions, defeating the Edmonton Eskimos, 41-6, in front of their home crowd at Montrealmarker's Olympic Stadiummarker. This Grey Cup was known as the "Ice Bowl" since the field was frozen in a sheet of ice. There was controversy after the game when the Eskimos were wearing normal cleats, while the Alouettes were wearing staples on their cleats giving them a huge advantage over the icy field. The Alouettes' Sonny Wade (QB) was named the Grey Cup's Most Valuable Player on Offence and Glen Weir (DT) was named the Grey Cup's Most Valuable Player on Defence. The Alouettes' Don Sweet (K) was named Grey Cup's Most Valuable Canadian.
