The win put Montreal, last in the East Division, one win ahead of West clubs Winnipeg and B.C. in the race for a crossover playoff spot.

The Alouettes ended a five-game losing run to the Bombers over the last three seasons, and beat them at home for only the second time in their last seven meetings.

Backup quarterback Brian Brohm scored a touchdown and Lirim Hajrullahu had two field goals for Winnipeg (4-8).

Crompton began the season as the Alouettes starter but injured a shoulder in the season opener. He was intercepted twice.

Rakeem Cato, who had taken over as starter, but who missed two games attending to a family matter, went on late in the game.

A crowd of 23,262, the largest at Percival Molson Stadium in nearly two years, saw Montreal get field goals on its first two drives.
