The 2005 Montreal Alouettes finished second place in the East Division with a 10–8–0 record. This was a disappointing season, by Alouettes standards, but they made it to the Grey Cup the hard way. They hosted the East Semi-Final and defeated the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Olympic Stadium, 30-14. They then traveled to Toronto to face the Argonauts at the Skydome, and they won 33-17, to advance to the Grey Cup. After a hard fought game they lost to the Edmonton Eskimos, 38-35 in what was only the second ever Grey Cup to be won in overtime.
