1). Calgary Stampeders (15-2-1)

Clearly the best team during the regular season. The question in the playoffs will be, can they turn it back on after not playing a meaningful game in a month?

Next Up: Host Western conference final

 

2). B.C. Lions (12-6)

The win over Saskatchewan gives them home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Next Up: Semi-final hosting Winnipeg

 

3). Winnipeg Blue Bombers (11-7)

The REDBLACKS and Blue Bombers faced off in their final regular season action on Friday night, and though both had already secured playoff berths, there was plenty on the line. With Winnipeg needing a win for a chance at second in the West, Matt Nichols hooked up with Darvin Adams for two majors, and the Bombers moved to 11-7 with a 33-20 victory.

Next Up: Semi-final @B.C.Lions

 

4). Edmonton Eskimos (10-8)

This will be the CFL crossover team and they will travel to Hamilton, to play a very winnable game. The Eskimos are playing as good as anybody in the CFL, and I would not be surprised if the end up back in the Grey Cup.

Next Up: Semi-final @Hamilton

 

5). Ottawa Redblacks (8-9-1)

Believe it or not, the Redblacks are one home win away from a second consecutive Grey Cup appearance. Ottawa is capable on offense of beating anyone. The question will be can the defense slow down the competition?

Next Up: Host Eastern Conference Championship

 

6). Hamilton Tiger-Cats (7-11)

Lost to Montreal, but they rested multiple starters including Collaros.

Next Up: Semi-final host Edmonton

 

7). Montreal Alouettes (7-11)

Vernon Adams Jr. stole the show, throwing three touchdown passes to lead the Montreal Alouettes to a 32-25 win on Saturday afternoon at Tim Hortons Field. The Alouettes have played very well since the QB and the coaching change, too bad they didn’t make the changes a few weeks earlier.

 

8). Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-13)

This team has a lot of questions to answer in the offseason.

 

9). Toronto Argonauts (5-13)

Argos at least put up a little bit of a fight against the Eskimos.
