Question Each vs Every

Hi there!

I have a doubt about the usage of these two words. I know that they can sometimes be used interchangeably, as for example in:

A) Each / Every time I see you, you look different.

But my grammar book says that in these other two examples is not possible to use both:

B) Our football team is playing well. We've won every game this season. (Each is not correct)

C) I tried to phone her 2 or 3 times, but each time there was no reply. (Every is not correct)

Could anybody shed some light on this?

Thank you very much in advance!!
