1). Calgary Stampeders (9-1-1)
Heading into the second half, the Stamps trailed Edmonton 17-3, but led by DaVaris Daniels who scored two touchdowns, Calgary clawed back to win 34-28 in overtime. The come-from-behind Labour Day rematch victory extended the Stamps’ winning streak to eight. This game was an example of why the Stamps are the best team, even when they don’t play their best they figure out a way to win
NEXT UP: Host Ottawa
2). B.C Lions (8-3)
The BC Lions scored touchdowns on their first three possessions and never looked back, topping the Montreal Alouettes 38-27 on Friday night at BC Place. The Lions are clearly the second best team in the CFL right now.
NEXT UP: BYE WEEK
3). Winnipeg Blue Bombers (7-4)
Matt Nichols was solid, completing 21 of his 32 passes for 247 yards and two rushing touchdowns, as the Bombers won their sixth-straight game, downing the Saskatchewan Roughriders 17-10 in the annual Banjo Bowl. Not all was rosy in Winnipeg as RB Andrew Harris was injured during the game.
NEXT UP: HOST Toronto
4). Ottawa RedBlacks (5-4-1)
NEXT UP: @Calgary
5). Edmonton Eskimos (5-6)
Eskimos QB Mike Reilly, completed 35-of-45 passes for 432 yards and two touchdowns in the loss to the Stamps. Edmonton’s quarterback also had 12 carries for 37 yards in the contest. The Eskimos seem to be playing better as of late.
NEXT UP: @Saskatchewan
6). Hamilton Tiger Cats (5-6)
The Argonauts defence was so dominant in this one that it held Ticats QB Zach Collaros to under 250 yards passing. The Tiger Cats as of late have made a habit of playing just one good half of football and winning. Unfortunately that will usually catch up to you, this week it did.
NEXT UP: Host Montreal
7). Toronto Argonauts (5-6)
Former Central Michigan QB Dan LeFevour passed for 329 yards and Brandon Whitaker galloped along the ground as the Toronto Argonauts, without Ricky Ray, held off another Hamilton comeback with a 33-21 win over the rival Tiger-Cats.
NEXT UP: @Winnipeg
8). Montreal Alouettes (3-8)
The Alouettes played hard as they usually do, they just don’t have the talent to hang with the Lions.
NEXT UP: @Hamilton
9). Saskatchewan (1-10)
Came up short to the red hot Blue Bombers 17-10.
