Doug Brown's theory on the post-game show was that the Stamps were thinking about a tie-breaker at the end of the season... that's when total point differential is used to make the call.

Fair enough, but for a team that won 15 games last season you kind of wonder what difference that field goal will make in the end.
I think every coach in the cfl would do the same, with the game won, no risk in trying to get more points to be ahead if a tie breaker situation happens later on, they are not meaningless points at this stage of the season.
